We think this may be our favorite collection so far this week. Even if we’re continually wowed from now until the end of Fashion Week, we still think this will wind up being one of our favorites for spring 2014. LOADED with personality (which is unbelievably welcome in a succession of a runway shows that seem determined to avoid the appearance of personalities) and full of gorgeous colors, textures and prints, this fun, playful, Afro-Cuban-inspired collection is an example of the exact right way to reference a culture in a fashion collection; playfully, respectfully, and clearly. You never really needed to be told where she was getting her inspiration from. Beautifully done.
