Glam Gods Badgley Mischka and Naeem Khan offered an ornate, but fundamentally minimal approach to statement dressing. Long, billowing textiles danced beautifully alongside reworked basics. A bold tartan struts confidently at Badgley Mischka while a sleek gold look flows across the runway at Naeem Khan.
Meanwhile Â designers Lela Rose and Rodarte print reigned supreme as interesting patterns and textures forced the eye to travel gracefully across luxe textures and rich colors. Deep navy , cream, black, and gold grounded each collection while subtle pops of subdued spring shades.
If you truly want minimal and elegant there are few designers that can compete with Narciso Rodriguez. The designer presented a confidently cool collection brimming withÂ linear outwear and separates creating elongated silhouettes. Diesel Black Gold echoed this aesthetic as they offered a collection full of modern basics. An all black palette, besides one deep navy look offered a sleek answer to every day dressing.
