“There is beauty in something you really love breaking,” said Marios Schwab, whose resort collection started with broken-and-stapled-back-together porcelain pieces found in London’s Victoria & Albert Museum. He translated cracked porcelain into necklines and seams on dresses and skirts that opened to reveal petals made from heat-treated plastic sequins, and reinterpreted staples as metal bar hardware used to punctuate seams and tack cape sleeves to dresses. A femme fatale quotient, played up in lace skirts inspired by Marcello Mastroianni’s “La Notte,” was offset by the tomboyish touch of bomber jackets done in a laser-cut camouflage pattern.
