OVERALL TAKEAWAY: Some questions we wonder throughout the week: is that model going to fall? Can someone bring us food? Where is the nearest bathroom? and of course, what are the chances Bono will serenade the crowd at EDUN?

Fortunately, restrooms and snacks are more readily available than the U2 singer, who along with his wife, Ali Hewson, founded the line that is often sourced in Africa. But alas, the Irish crooner was nowhere to be found, even though there was plenty of glitz to be had among the seats. A scrum of eager photographers materialized when Alicia Keys and Hewson walked in. Scott Schuman, who perched quite literally at our feet, snapped shots of the safari and military-reminiscent pieces: cargo pants, hunter greens, dropped waists. But these were hardly Colonel Kurtz-inspired looks. Modified mesh, light sparkles, sheer textures, and strappy gladiator heels broke up the darker tones for spring. As the liner notes said, this collection was all about juxtaposition.

Once the models took their final lap around the partially mirrored warehouse, the crowd dispersed to find a farm stand. Breezy Hill Orchards doled out cinnamon doughnuts, apples, pears, and apple cider. It was a nice visual of the juxtaposition in the style community: we may be in fashion, but we can pack it away too.
