Known for creating pieces featuring famous logos, Adobe Darko has taken a different approach to this season’s streetwear collection. Although the clothing still kept the playful 80s style with logos, designers Chaim Bellinsky took Adobe Darko to another level. Placing popular phrases like “hello,” “goodbye,” “OMG,” and “BRB” on baggy clothing helped create a fun introduction to a new era of Adobe Darko. Bellinsky is also known for playing with accessories, so it was only fitting that he end his collection with a lego-themed button-down top, matching shorts, and a lego head purse.

Christie also guided the audience through each segment by playing with the tempo of the music and the layers of clothing. As the beat of the music progressed, the designs gradually grew in detail, finally concluding the collection with a black and white tulle ball gown with the WARMING logo printed across the top.
