New York-based Jose Duran’s show was styled to perfection. The first half of the collection was inspired by a samurai motif. Long overcoats were draped around models effortlessly. Duran primarily used lighter, Saharan-desert colours that contrasted with the bolder palate in the second half of the show.

The latter half of the collection incorporated urban-style, translucent pieces. Black chiffon tunics subdued the bright vests worn underneath them. Fitted cardigans were worn over printed shirts. Each look was finished with a statement gladiator sandal with leather embellishments.
