It was hot, hot, hot on the day we trooped over to a rooftop presentation of Generra’s RTW for men and women.
We were dripping with sweat by the time we climbed the last bunch of stairs (now that's a fashion look)- that made our review of the 20 ensembles- a fast one.
We were amazed the models barely had a droplet of moisture on their brows.
The understated hip in the easy mix/match separates – played into a well edited, subtle tone collection of linen pants, slim cut denim, cotton twill shorts, cute dresses, and ribbed or stripped cotton tops.
Our favorite styles skewed military-as in a Khaki cotton twill jacket and army slub jersey polo for guys.
And two light weight leather motorcycle jackets and a grey-cotton-merino wool hoodie- replace the often boring cardigans as trendy cover-ups.
