Since the very first time I saw photos of one of his collections back in 2009, I’ve been in love with Chris Benz.
Few designers do color and mix patterns and materials as well. His clothes are so colorful, viewing them is like injecting Crayola crayons directly into your veins.
His inspiration this season? “Andy Warhol’s superstars go to Coney Island, with a nod to candy kids.”
For Spring, Chris once again partnered with shoe designer Alejandro Ingelmo to create a line of wedges AND sneakers!
The dramatic hair and makeup complimented the 60’s inspired clothing:
Cotton Candy Hair!
The glasses and sunglasses the models wore were to die for.
The presentation space itself was just as colorful:
Chris and a model posing for Teen Vogue
Chris and Johnny Weir
Not surprisingly, I would wear everything in this collection!
