The focus instead—with an eye to the economy—was on wearable day pieces. They offered a very cool collarless blazer with matching pants over an orange laser-cut chiffon blouse, a metallic gray cardigan worn with a shoulder-padded tee and high-waisted star-print shorts, and a sash-waist jumpsuit in an acid-wash print (it was subtle, we promise). The collection had a new polish, but Buhai and Mayock haven't completely grown up. As if to prove they haven't lost their Brooklyn street cred, the duo enlisted their pals Eleanor and Matthew Friedberger of the Fiery Furnaces to play during the show. And they showed a safety-pin camisole that will go over big in Williamsburg.
