The theme played out in clothes that were pieced together from different materials, ostensibly found scraps. Jumpsuits-cum-overalls came in a mélange of satin, vinyl, and wool, with the back pockets of a former pair of pants falling somewhere around mid-calf. That garbage bag came in a few variations, one smartly fashioned into a paper bag-waisted skirt topped with a floral jacquard jacket.
While the above-mentioned items were unabashedly "high concept," Herchcovitch also managed to work in wearability in pretty, printed sack dresses, especially one in a diamond patchwork. And who knowsas the designer is opening his first boutique in fashion-obsessed Tokyo next month, he could well have a customer for that Hefty frock.
