The Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with precious metals known as kintsugi gave Jonathan Cohen his starting point for spring. He approached the idea both figuratively and literally — the former by using a photo-realistic print of crushed porcelain and crystal that was segmented into the fabric, and the latter via a long tank that pieced together panels of petal embroidery and netting. Elsewhere, black cocktail dresses featured gold threading details on fragmented hems and pants had raw edges.
Overall, this was a well-thought-out lineup for Cohen, who has been in business since 2011, albeit a bit under the radar. Perhaps slow and steady will win the race.
