WHAT WE THOUGHT: Taking notes from Memphis in the 1980s, when bold geometric shapes and bright colors were mixed with a touch of humor, Mayock and Buhai sent down a collection of beautifully tailored but easy-to-throw-on blazers with perfectly fitted high-waisted pants in colors like black, tan, and gray (which is already shaping up to be a big spring color).
There were lovely silk slip dresses highlighted with a pop of color, mostly orange or blue. While prints weren't in abundance, the few that were there were quite wearable, even for those who usually opt out of prints altogether.
