James Iha provided an upbeat custom soundtrack that complemented a collection with two threads running through it: a soft preppiness and an origamilike construction. These two seemingly incongruous themes balanced harmoniously. Among the user-friendly twisted classics on the runway were a powdery-blue and white mattress-ticking dress; a roomy, hoodless parka; and a navy blue shorts suit that actually made the concept look like a viable wardrobe option. Pham said that the duo was "having a bit more fun" with this collectionand the audience was, too.
