With the ante sufficiently upped, they moved on to, among other things, sleeveless dresses collaged from squares of exotic skins and leather; oversize, slouching-forward coats in perforated leather bonded to jersey that was laser-cut, then crocheted back together; and Gerhard Richter-inspired jacquards cut into a boxy cropped jacket and an A-line skirt. The most energetic pieces came toward the end. Photoprints are a dime a dozen on the runways, but McCollough and Hernandez found a new way to work them. By cutting them on the bias into strips, then stitching them diagonally across the torso, found images like crowd scenes and kids in a pool looked almost abstract. Pushing their experiments even further, some of those dresses were embroidered with flat colored studs on the bodice and silver grommets at the hem.
