Zero + Maria Cornejo

Even they, however, might be seduced by Cornejo's gorgeous colors this season. Partially inspired by the Jamaican flag, she put together a silk dress in wide horizontal stripes of green, chartreuse, royal blue, and purple. It practically radiated. Only slightly less bold was another dress color-blocked in pink and red. Many of the silhouettes will be familiar to Cornejo followers, but she's pushing herself in a couple of new directions, adding a frill to the hem of a cocoon dress—it's not quite a ruffle, but almost—and on the opposite end of the spectrum, cutting a pantsuit in oversize, boyish proportions. The pant legs especially are quite full. An energized collection all around.
