When you know how varied influences-anything from a vintage photograph to a scrap of fabric found at a flea market to an international trip-can shape an entire collection then you are studying designer's mood!

But what keeps the collection from venturing too far into circus territory are its '70s prints and sophisticated tailoring. What do you think about the collection?
