Said the respected Belgian designer of his collection, which included a mix of brightly coloured tailored pieces and feathered cocktail dresses: “It reflects the environment. All of these different people with different styles and dress codes. It’s the future, the past, Art Deco, the city, the American West… It is the coming together of different characters and different individuals, just like America itself.”
