One of the pleasures of Vejas Kruszewski’s collection is his way of putting details with very specific associations into new contexts. He calls it “extraction.” For example, in his spring collection, the zigzag topstitching often seen on denim was used to create a gentle Empire waist on a pretty white cotton poplin off-the-shoulder dress. A yellow-and-black suede jacket shared features with a classic Timberland boot and outdoor workman’s gloves. White shirts came in classic outerwear shapes, such as a moto and a bomber. A white, nubby silk wool dress was plainly cut but for its single sleeve, which had a black cuff belonging to a sweatshirt. “It’s extraction, utility, futurism,” said Vejas of the lineup, which merged the basic (jeans, white shirts) with the directional (red and yellow leathers) without ever eliminating wearability.
