[Lazaro] When we were first creating the collection,
00:06
we came here to see the Stella show.
00:08
And that was really the starting point
00:09
for the entire collection.
00:10
Stella and all those processed based artists
00:13
of the 60's and 70's american artists.
00:16
[Natasha] I think that they're great.
00:17
There was a black number with slacks underneath it.
00:19
I was like that's for me.
00:21
There was a cropped black bomber
00:22
with a white shearling at the top.
00:24
I was like I should be wearing that jacket.
00:27
[Jack] We really wanted to focus
00:28
on a lot of tailoring, coats and jackets,
00:30
and a lot of knitwear.
00:31
We liked the ease of knitwear,
00:32
and so we're exploring new ideas of knitted dresses.
00:35
Different ways to lace jackets and coats together.
00:38
Taking more oversized coat shapes,
00:40
lacing it down to the waist
00:42
to create this a-line silhouette.
00:44
Those beginning bits were really interesting to explore.
00:48
They evolved throughout the season.
