So citrus hues are all over the Spring 2012 runways and sheer is still (unsurprisingly) having its moment, but Jen Kao showed a bunch of bizarre, sculptural oddities that had more in common with avante-garde Dutch designer than the endless file of NYFW’s pretty Spring dresses. …But why have one when you can have both?
