Spring was conceived as an extension of Fall. So last season's mirrored hearts and butterfly zippers were succeeded by a top in the shape of an orchid, and twisted ropes and geodes lashed to and suspended from garments. "It's a basic idea I could have come up with when I was five years old," Cho told Style.com, "but [until now] I never thought of making into something more beautiful."
However, this wunderkammer of natural rarities was a bit too rarefied, the scope too limited. The silhouettes were mostly restricted to minidresses and narrow pants. Essentially, Cho's "rolling stones" were one-offs that probably would have been better served by an intimate showroom presentation than a full-on runway showeven if half of downtown did turn out to applaud.
