David Cardona: Doing double duty for Cerruti as well as his own line, David Cardona opted for a calmer, by-appointment showroom presentation with two models. Good thing, as he had only been here half a day since flying in from Milan. While Cardona typically does tough, Matrix-like looks, he kept things light and sporty for spring, and even ventured into denim for the first time. But his wasn’t basic jeans. He worked the softest black denim twills into suits and shirtdresses with the same overstitched oval or curved panels he used throughout the 70-piece collection. Elsewhere, he played feminine against masculine elements, like a corset engineered into a man’s white shirt or a short-sleeved sweater. Overall, the tailored edge he likes was still there, but significantly softer.

Coquettes and flirts will certainly find something to flit about town in come spring.
