New York: Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez seemed to have been inspired by rebellious high schoolers for their latest collection. While the design duo’s label has always appealed to the PYTs, these looks seemed to skew even younger with ultra-high hemlines, frenetic prints and references to prep school days. Letterman jackets were cropped to the natural waist and had sharp blazer lapels, and pleated cheerleader skirts were extra-short and sometimes made from slick leather. The printed high-waisted skinny jeans made in collaboration with J Brand were eye-popping in a punky graffiti motif. These girls aren’t on the honor roll. Babydoll dresses were dangerously short, although the sequin-encrusted long sleeves made them feel slightly more covered up. Lush greens and blues in hazy kaleidoscope patterns were a carry-over from last season’s palette and provided a counterbalance to the high-contrast printed jeans. Peter Pan-collared toggle jackets were on the sweeter side, and the collection ended with a selection of adorable wrapped bubble dresses in splotchy prints that showed this bad girl’s nicer side.
