Gustavo Arango: With this collection, Gustavo Arango's girls will be sure to get their glamour fix, thanks to his sensual, red-carpet contenders. They came in the form of silk gowns — slate blue satin, copper velvet, sienna organza — that gracefully trace the body and bare the back with dramatic origami folds. For his more tailored looks, he showed trousers in wool or silk, boldly wrapped at the waist with silk shirts. Arango knows how to cut a coat with the same swagger, and he did just that in a black textured wool version and another in sienna silk organza. This collection is one that should go beyond the needs of the Oscars crowd.
Keanan Duffty: Already known as a go-to guy for all things punk, Keanan Duffty translated that streetwear savvy into a collection of premium denim — the only segment he has not addressed, until now. But that's just what the designer did, along with his new partner, Paul Guez, chief executive of the privately held Blue Concept. Out came well-fitted skinny jeans with silver studs at the waists or skull and crossbones embroidered on back pockets. There were also elongated T-shirt dresses worn alone or over a painted Union Jack mini, black denim military and tuxedo jackets and hoodies with foil graphics. Cheers to Duffty, who gave us a hard-edged collection with attitude to spare.
