What We Thought: The boys have developed a cult fashion following and in front of a packed house at Milk Studios they presented some very adoration-worthy options for their merry band of admirers.
Among them were a long bark brown dress gathered ever so fluidly at the hip and a long-sleeved jersey dress that had a seam that cut across the body in an elegant swath. The technical elements were all in place, especially in the last piece, a brick red sleeveless dress that nipped and tucked to origami-like perfection.
Overall it was a very wearable collection in a Tilda Swinton kind of way. Surely fashion's high intelligentsia will come a'calling.
