According to Chris Benz, women have finally come back around to the art of dressing up (he may have a point, based on a few of the ostentatious front-row fixtures spotted this week). "I remember sitting in my mom's bathroom, watching her get all dolled up while listening to The Judy Garland Holiday Special," he mused. "And now girls are making the effort to be glam like that again."

Channeling this nostalgia, Benz presented a Fall collection that at times felt like watching a Turner Classic Movies marathon. Costume wigs, pillbox hats, cabaret soundtrack music, and a gold sequined backdrop amplified the retro vibe of the clothing. For example, tea-length frocks with voluminous petticoats were paired with shrunken cardigans reminiscent of fifties sweater girls. Slim cigarette pants shown with astrakhan pullovers trimmed in mink could've been pulled straight from Holly Golightly's closet. The playful colored fur coats here were a high point, and there were several more straightforward pieces like a structured wool raw-edged topper and printed wide-leg pants that would integrate seamlessly with a modern wardrobe.
