This was a nice collection with references to sport, some more obvious than others. Silk is a difficult fabric to work with and is a testament to a designers skill in the workroom. Unfortunately for Herchcovitch this is not as natural as his use of colour.
Puckered silk skinny pants in blush were a bit rocky, stretching in different directions when the models walked. Nude lace overlays on shoulders and underlays on skirts were pretty, while shin-high striped sports socks and baseball clutches made for fun accessories. If I see another collection with exposed zippers I may scream. It’s old people, Lanvin did it four seasons ago. Let it die.
A blue/purple and orange silk dress kinda looked like an LA Lakers basketball tank. A couple of looks with uber-exaggerated football shoulders will make great editorial pieces or a staple for Lady Gaga. Rubbery tops and dressses with curving slicks of pattern were pure Herchcovitch. The colours were great with punches of pink, purple and green, evoking his Brazilian heritage.
