The duo's familiar shirtdresses were layered over ribbed knit black turtlenecks, waists were high, and hems were long for a Me Decade vibe. A black silk crepe de chine jumpsuit with a corded halter neckline stood out, as did a dress patchworked from shiny gray, lichen, and copper viscose and black micro-lace. A washed gray leather jacket with snaps at the shoulders and a pair of wool cloaks with leather trim indicate Buhai and Mayock are trying to extend their range, but it's the instant-wardrobe-update items—the culotte shorts, cropped sweatshirts, and overall dresses—that will more likely attract buyers. What makes these designers successful is how delicately attuned they remain to what the cool girls want these days.
