"Real clothes." For pre-fall, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough said they focused not only on what the girls they know want to wear, but also on what they'd wear if they were girls themselves. Translation: The duo reimagined their uniform of cotton T-shirts and Levi's as sequin tees with zips up the back and stretch corduroys. Jersey blazers with the ease of cardigans and short full skirts also scored points for wearability. A draped teal georgette dress with asymmetric seams didn't quite rise to the level of fantasy seen on their runways, but it's just the thing a cool girl wants to wear on the cocktail circuit. In times like these, that's fitting.
