Rodriguez experimented quite a bit with fused fabrics. A double-face woven cotton gave a tiered miniskirt more shape, and the black micro-netting over a blush tube dress reinforced the overall sporty feeling. But he could have done without a gray sweatshirt decorated with a hibiscus-meets-tattoo motif. The collection's strong palette of mostly black and white, with hits of orange and nude, didn't need embellishment.
