The tem­per­a­ture is on the rise for the young New York de­signer, whose covet-ev­ery-piece spring/sum­mer collection is all about liv­ing on both sides of the edge. RIOT ACT “I was in­spired by the movie Quadrophe­nia— when the mods show up at Brighton Beach and the rock­ers start throw­ing beach chairs at them. The aftermath was a mess but beau­ti­ful— these chic black-and-white stripes fly­ing in dif­fer­ent di­rec­tions.” BLURRED LINES “I don’t think my girl’s a mod; I don’t think she’s a rocker. She’s the best of both—maybe even the worst of both.” SHAPE- SHIFTER “My favourite piece for sum­mer? A stretch pen­cil skirt. Wear it high on the waist with a crop top or long with an over­sized but­ton-down and sneak­ers.” (From $430, at Holt Ren­frew, holtren­frew.com)
