Paris: Design duo Nana Aganovich and Brooke Taylor must have been watching lots of Star Trek reruns when designing their spring collection. The rigid looks recalled costumes from the celebrated television show, from the strict A-line silhouettes to the color blocking, and even down to the pins on the left breast of each ensemble. Futuristic themes have been prevalent this season, so, though their interpretation was somewhat extreme and possibly too literal, it wasn’t completely out of left field. What was out of left field, however, were the handful of slinky silk looks, some featuring thistle and sunflower graphics. These oddball ensembles combined with awkward asymmetry and unflattering harem pants made this collection feel erratic and uneven. –Joanna Manganaro
