On their second full-fledged effort — and first runway show — Linder designers Kirk Millar and Sam Linder presented a collection full of pieces that tricked the eye, twisting basics in a lineup full of new ideas that were worth exploring. Asymmetry was the main message. Uneven pant legs with different widths and lengths, shirts with contrasting voluminous and slim sleeves, and halter tops with elongated backs were among the most startling looks.
Another interesting concept was a play on gender-fluid pieces such as denim skirts, belted elongated sweaters and cropped shirts.
In a week that is typically characterized by commercial offerings and predictable referential inspirations, Linder was a breath of fresh air and a welcome addition to the official schedule.
