Victoria Feldman and Tomas Berzins hit their stride in this concise collection, cleverly balancing the brand’s signature male/female dichotomy, along with the commercial and the creative.
Asymmetry was one approach, such as on a two-button wool coat with an open shoulder, and a voluminous checked skirt combining short and long layers that the wearer can turn at will.
The oversize shirts in classic men’s stripes and tartans with customizable ties were great. The black leathers and jacquard knits in tongue-in-cheek tattoo motifs like sharks and birds were less compelling, though they didn’t distract from the overall soigné attitude.
Completing the silhouettes was the brand’s first footwear line designed in collaboration with Elina Dobele, and based on suede and leather booties with chunky slanted heels that come in open and closed versions.
