Blayne
Considering Blayne's penchant for color and extremism, I have to say this look is pretty good. The jacket is fantastic and I simply can't believe that he did that in such a short amount of time; the silhouette works in beautifully with DVF's fall collection with its wide collar and cinched waist. Though I feel the blouson shorts may have worked in a slightly softer, more sophisticated fabric, I just don't see them looking chic enough as is. The exposed ties on the legs also make them look a little home-made, and then pairing them with bare legs and black pumps makes the whole look seem a bit disjointed - summer meets winter meets business casual. Good pieces, but not a knockout.
