Victor Alfaro clearly has one objective in mind when designing: to make women look as glamorous as humanly possible. This time around, his archetypal woman went out to playmixing and matching leather motorcycle jackets in vibrant colors with easy, chunky knits, sexy crocodile belts and sleek, long slacks. Optical prints, reminiscent of '70s upholstery fabric, looked surprisingly chic in low-slung trousers and long coats; plaid fringed skirts, blush silk jackets and grape chiffon evening dresses screamed for cocktails in Aspen. Overall, it was an eclectic, artfully combined collection that successfully dared to explore a variety of influences.
