TANYA TAYLOR: Tanya Taylor’s show at the MoMA delivered on the promise of her fall debut with a sophomore outing inspired by the Sandy Lane Hotel in Barbados. Standouts included a hand-drawn floral print repeated throughout the collection, most notably in a sequin top paired with a coral suit.
DEAN QUINN: You can credit Dean Quinn’s training at Versace for the cut of his dresses. Considerably quieter than anything Donatella has produced, however, his sheaths were a study in sensual minimalism, the best detail being a zipper on a yellow shift, which exposed just the right amount of upper thigh.

JONATHAN SIMKHAI: For a New Yorker, Jonathan Simkhai sure loves (and gets) California. Beyond his elevation of Venice Beach bohemia in status, his surf-meetssex collection also displayed a fresh wit in its use of volume and pattern.
