primary colorz

I'm here sifting through the fashion week collections from the last few days, and I can't help but be completely unenthused by, well, just about everything. Drab central, man -- recession be damned!

I gotta give it up to Chris Benz, however, for managing to make the event a little louder and more interesting. What struck me most were the painterly shirt and skirt patterns seen above. His work is typically reflective of his Seattle upbringing, but this particular collection is a tribute to '80s/'90s New York City shaken to life with an Yves Klein primary palette.

Seriously though, all I see here is Kandinsky and it makes me purrrrrrrrr with delight.

Nice juxtaposition. Now if I could only afford a skirt like that

Thanks! Oh, I wish I had the bank, too.. I may attempt a DIY on this one.
