September 12, 2012 New York
The other half of Zoe's heart is California bohemian. Nothing exemplified the show's laid-back SoCal vibe so much as the oversize T-shirt slouching off one shoulder that topped a floor-scraping white paillette column skirt. Unless it was the pool blue chiffon maxi dress over which she belted a turquoise linen jacket.
There were plenty of wearable pieces, but for all her fame and influence Zoe is still new at the runway thing, and this show felt over-merchandised. When a model walks down the runway in a floppy hat, sunglasses, and gold lariat, carrying an oversize bag slung across her body, it's easy to overlook the clothes. Something to keep in mind for next time.
