There was a very real world mix of masculine and feminine with Johanna Ortiz's collection which we would wager is how many women who don't have the opportunity (or desire) to wear a gown on a daily basis prefer to dress in real life. The pairing of a higher-end statement piece which, in this case, meant Ortiz's pretty shirting and striped blouses with statement sleeves which were often attached to a bodysuit, combined with something as dressed down as denim worked really well. We liked the floral prints and the palette, the Colombian designer's signature ruffles and bows and the cut of the menswear-style trousers. There was some pyjama dressing which we haven't seen much of this season, and another item which has turned up a lot less frequently on runways than we had initially anticipated made an appearance: several political statement t-shirts were thrown in for good measure.
