Finding Peace: Zero + Maria Cornejo Spring 2015

If Maria Cornejo’s intention was to “evoke a certain peaceful naivete in a world full of conflict,” the designer succeeded in just that, creating a collection that would be perfect for an art-student heiress spending a languid semester abroad exploring museums.

The show opened with a selection of looks in white and dove stretch leather, before expanding to modish b&w looks that recalled Nicolas Ghesquière’s later offerings from Balenciaga with their playfully ruffled apron-belts. For Cornejo’s devoted followers, lightweight suiting with turned-in lapels presented a summery update to business attire, while peekaboo fabrics, dashes of denim, and easy, youthful shapes seemed to court a younger crowd.
