Jaysus was way too hard on himself. We loved this. The logo, the way he used the lace, the belt, the masterful skirt – it all looked like old done new, which, since that was pretty much exactly the idea behind the collection, made him a contender for the win as far as we’re concerned.
He kept characterizing this as a Holly Hobbie look but it’s way more sophisticated than that. He has a gorgeous sense of how to do deconstruction, which made him perfectly suited for the challenge.
Loved the idea of the mood patch.
In fact, he was one of the few designers who actually followed the dictates of the collection. This is earthy, deconstructed and futuristic-looking. Exactly what it was supposed to be. It’s something of a testament to how off-course the team was when one of the few people who was doing exactly what they were supposed to was the one freaking out and questioning himself the most.
