Inspired by 1990s street fashion with a modern touch, Williams looked to iconic models when starting the collection. "Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and actually even look at her daughter Kaia who’s just doing beyond amazing and I’m obsessed. I love her," said the designer. "We looked at that and then we just kind of were like, ‘Ok, how do we bring a little bit of a moderness to this, yet keep some of those elements? Runway looks like bodycon purple zebra print, wearable black jumpsuits, and neon rompers answered the designer's question. Hits also included a suede coat that opened the show, plus smart plaid suiting, and leopard print wrap dresses.
