Prints are everywhere this season, but at Chris Benz, the trend took on a whole new dimension. He piled them on in fun, colorful circles, camouflage, Sixties Pop motifs, color blocks and stripes. Sometimes, a few collided in the same look, such as the ikat top teamed with a jacket done in photographic images of flower buds and slouchy pants in an oversize graphic. It all seemed a bit like sensory overload, but that was clearly Benz’s intention. As he put it, “It was on the wings of record temperatures this summer, and that made us insane New Yorkers.”
