(NEW YORK) Maria Cornejo explored the complicated and often conflicting relationship between the pulse of the city and the power of nature through simple, unadorned designs in her latest collection. Barley-colored linen tunics, wooden body cuffs and silk prints of leaves and grass exemplified Cornejo's love of the natural world and the tranquility it provides. In contrast, bark leather jackets and smoky hued drop pants brought the city lights to Corenjo's natural environment, emphasizing "the beautiful tension of organic elements pushing through the cement of an urban landscape."
