Loden Dager’s collection was smart and refined, but with enough edge to keep audiences interested. The pieces consisted of fitted sweaters, bright pops of color, polished suits, and eye-catching jackets and accessories. I felt the collection was very wearable and accessible – it was a nice balance between downtown New York and the refined gentleman. There were graphic knit sweaters that fit snug with designs that were not too loud or cheesy, but enough to maintain interest. The sunglasses were very cool, circular with bright colored frames, that provided that extra pop.

Guishem was edgy and energetic – even some of the models were grooving a little bit to the Micheal Jackson remixes. The collection featured a majority of cocktail dresses, gowns, and a few pants and jackets. The general look was made of clean and sharp lines, geometry-inspired cuts and designs, and electric pops of color from leggings and color blocked cocktail dresses. The geometric designs on the garments were flattering, composed in a way that brought attention towards the center of the waist, which slimmed the model even more so. I can see Guillermo Jop designing some structured pants and blazers that played with the proportion of the body and took the same geometric cuts as his collection.
