Los Angeles-based designer Juan Carlos Obando impressed us last season with his retro, space-inspired glamor. This season was more even more glamorous, but he took the refined look up a notch, sticking with lean silhouettes inspired by Carla Bruni.
Also like last season, Obando used Swarovski crystals to create texture and patterns on the clothing. While we were partial to last year's constellations, this collection's black on black styles were more subtle, thus more sophisticated.
