Zero + Maria Cornejo Pre-Fall 2013

FLING WITH FEMININITY
New York: Known for ovoid silhouettes and asymmetrical shapes that stand away from the body, Maria Cornejo changed it up for Pre-Fall. The designer suggested that she had been toying with  “a more feminine look.” This resulted in fluttery A-line dresses, silky blouses, and pleated skirts. Wide belts accentuated the waist, an area that Cornejo doesn’t typically give much emphasis. The designer did not give up her signature prints, however. This season’s selection included texture prints, striated animal motifs, blurry, abstract shapes, and even a photograph of Bob Marley, clipped, pixilated, and overlapping itself. Though the shapes were quite a departure for Cornejo, the collection retained her unique brand of low-key coolness, which has made her a favorite among fashionistas in New York and beyond. –Joanna Manganaro
