Cynthia Rowley loved how her Reed + Rader-directed video lookbook for Resort turned out, so she tried to bring some of those animated elements to her Spring collection. The designer achieved this kind of desired movement with sporty separates like bonded leggings in a distorted floral print (see: Kate King's opening look) and perforated mesh leather T-shirts. Metallic zigzag patterns and shimmering gold sequin appliqué details also came to life on the mirrored runway (Rowley spoke about "the optical energy of gold" backstage before the show). Most of the best looks here combined athletic elements with feminine silhouettes. Hourglass party dresses with swishy horsehair circle skirts, for example, were cut from a scuba-y tech fabric and featured sporty stitched bodices. One could imagine both forward-thinking style stars like Alexa Chung, who was sitting front-row today, as well as Rowley's contemporary customer in the finale "forced perspective" frock that was modeled by top newcomer Erjona Ala.
