This upstart's past few collections have been fawned over by editors and insiders alike, so the packed presentation attracted insiders like Derek Blasberg and fashionable celebrities like Brad Goreski from the Rachel Zoe Project. As for the clothes? Colors, feathers, sparkles, and more.
The outfits on the models assembled on stage for the presention ranged from jet-set leisure suits in soft blues to straight-up carnival wear, i.e. a model wearing a rainbow-colored feather boa-jacket. Not everyone was sure what to make of the multi-colored presentation, and most eye-gazing centered on the simpler pieces -- a color block miniskirt, a lounge-inspired blazer. Overall, just walking into the room was uplifting, between the colors and the sparkle, though we'll admit, we too were bigger fans of some of Benz's more signature pieces -- his colorful multi-tiered shirts and pastel separates.
