KALEIDOSCOPE KITSCH

Brazilian designer Alexandre Herchcovitch straddles the line between avant-garde and realistic, often showing bright, bold pieces with interesting construction and experimental fabrics. S/S 10 combined a kaleidoscopic use of color and graphic prints with references to football, in a less literal and more playful way than Alexander Wang’s homage to the sport earlier this week. Short dresses were the backbone of the collection in a variety of wearable silhouettes, from a color-blocked, drawstring waist tank to a simple t-shirt sheath in printed rubber. Pieced pants and shorts were in line with the current craze for constructed leggings, but here updated in light-hued, printed satin with slices of print. Well-constructed and optimistic for spring, these attention-getting items are a welcome alternative to the recent slew of dark, grunge-focused fashions.
