Crisp white lines cut a wide swath against a black background on the opening look, but the prints only get more interesting from here. Trompe l’oeil details like printed, rather than real, pockets keep us guessing, while a repeated pattern reminiscent of high-frequency sound waves keeps the pacing of the show lively and electric. The deconstructed aesthetic comes in the form of slashed-open tops that cascade down the front of the torso like the whole thing’s coming apart. For all of the broken glass and sound-wave imagery, there is softness to this collection in the gentle folds of vests and the loose fit of shift dresses. Sleeveless tuxedo blouses and slouchy trousers are a comfortable balance to the high-wire print presentation, and Braganza’s balancing act is without a misstep.
