This was only the third season we’ve seen Julien David’s designs walk down the runway and I am liking what I’m seeing. The collection embodies a somewhat laid back preppy feel, with a touch of humor. What with all the Royal Tenenbaum-esque tennis headbands and oversized silhouettes, Julien David proves to not take his work too seriously. The overall color palette and sporadic use of pattern keep things interesting, but don’t overpower the designs themselves. I’m quite pleased with this collection and look forward to what Julien David will bring us next!
