Afro-Victorian mashups are the order of the day this season, lending and odd balance of relaxed primness, but the true pulse of the collection comes from the "visual tactility" of it's fabrics of printed guipure, laser cut fringe and clipped jacquards.
-"The use of texture and pattern is always a priority in my design, but never more so now that actual touch is so necessarily discouraged, so it was very important to me that anyone be able to "touch" these clothes with their eyes."

As it's name suggests, this textural study of colorful findings and trim has an embellished athleticism that suggests a would be Masai warrior's varsity jacket.

The playful Charm of this Afro-Henley manifests an optimism that is welcome in any audience, virtual or otherwise.

The paradoxical irony of this Africanized kimono top is it's odd correctness and lack of irony. Clipped threads lend subtle texture to it's bold prints on multiple patterns of inside out jacquard.

The sartorial polish of this pants construction paired with it's pops of trim on quirky stretch jacquard evoke images of bold unapologetic Nigerian haberdashery.

The Orientalism of the flared pant gives a nod toward vintage treasure while also capturing a modern pragmatism that only adds to its intrigue. The combination of it's neon racing side stripe and unexpected drawstring cuff give it harem ]/active hybrid status.

Maybe even more than the allure of it's luxurious athleticism, is the appeal of it's versatility. Whether worn as a dress or as a topper, this piece has a relaxed brand of polish that is just right for the here and now AND for the steadfastly approaching better days ahead.

This easy-to-wear pullover with it's ironic Tuna emblem seems a Dadaist's study in textural lace, with the appearance of an almost accidental sexiness that is actually anything but.

Plunging Convertible Sequin Dress: Beyond being seasonless, this dressy dress has a surprising degree of versatility, not the least of which being it's ability to function as a layering piece when it's slip lining is removed as shown here paired with jeans.

Chic don't get any easier OR more comfortable than this cute little pull-on skirt that will be the only straight skirt you'll want to wear in this Neo sweat pant culture.

This playful riff on a French classic has an unpretentious ease and sophistication that is "ALL"-American. (all as in "inclusive" and not as in entirely)

Full Transparency is the policy of this Chantilly lace button-down classic.

This composite cotton lace top with it's laser cut chiffon fringe sleeve evokes images of a seaside stroll in Deauville to the faintest beat of African drums.

This feminine little textured composite cotton lace top has Zoom-event-readiness written all over it but, its promise of sustained relevance in actual future events is what amps up its appeal.
