Sonia Yoon and Ben Channing Clyburn's Bensoni line has always been a go-to for utter adorable-ness, so when we heard this season was about cybergoths, we had to ask.

Tell us about the Spring collection!
Sonia: “We’re really excited to show this collection, because we feel like it’s our best yet. The collection is really about our society today and how people are all into being into nature and loving mother earth and being a part of the green moment and at the same time our world is on this crazy technology bullet train, and everyone’s digitally obsessed. And so we wanted to tell the story about this girl who is really a little bit of both. She’s hippie and bohemian, yet she’s modern and she’s on this acid trip into the future.

What era are you from, personally?
Sonia: I’ve gone through different phases in my life. I’ve been them all. And the girl we’re designing for is bohemian and relaxed during the day, and at night she kind of goes berserk as this cybergoth girl.

Are you tech savvy or luddites?
Ben: We’re totally tech savvy, definitely.
Sonia: Well, Ben more so is always on his Blackberry! I think that’s the case with a lot of people, and we are definitely supportive of the digital era. We’re all for it. We actually want it to go faster!
