New York: Brazilian designer Oskar Metsavaht never trained in fashion, and develops collections around an artistic process. For his first NYFW showing, his inspiration was the changing light during a long day at the beach, which he captured in a progression of dawn-to dusk color; metallic golds, sunset oranges and dusky blues were dyed or printed onto techno neoprenes and eco-denims. Darkened landscape motifs and black-and-white photoprints emphasized the poetic narrative in a way that felt conceptual, rather than literal. – Sharon Graubard
