The Look: MSGM has been building its empire on expertly done (and quirkily mismatched) prints, and this collection proves the label is keen to continue its reign. The look was familiar, although coolly abstract — a sleeveless blue pea coat with tan colored fur attached at the bottom mimicked a serene beach scene — and slightly trippy, but more than simply wearable. Florals and a cut-and-paste feel abounded, but even the more simple pieces (an oversized coat, a three-piece matching suit) were done with a deft hand. MSGM's ability to never overdo it (there's a subtle simplicity inherent in everything) will keep them ahead of the print pack.
The Accessories: Fur-covered mitts and colorblocked sandals along with bags piped in a contrasting color. Loafers featured thick soles or were comprised of fur.
The Beauty: Crystals placed just below the eyes, inner lids lined in a subtle white and wine-stained, just-bitten lips.
The Takeaway: MSGM feels like a breath of fresh air and a mediator in the fight between print/embellishment excess versus sartorial simplicity.
