But the Canadian designer's hunting-style ensembles and leather jackets commanded everyone's attention. "His collection was very spare and muted," said Chamberlain, the Conde Nast editor. "It feels like a new look is emerging."
Lynn was exhausted but pleased. "It was good," he told ABC News. "You just end up working day and night for months and months. The show lasts six minutes, you take a couple of days' break and go back and do it all over again."
Savannah Miller and her actress sister Sienna Miller delivered wearable looks, great for any girl's night out, and followed the trend of presenting their collection off the catwalk. Their models instead walked about and chatted casually on platforms, posing for photographers and answering journalists' questions about the garments.
"It was just a more honest format," Savannah Miller told ABC News. "When we did the catwalk, we were measured against hot-shot designers, and that's not what we were after."
The final show of the day introduced a new wave of talent, with students at Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design presenting their graduation pieces. Students there, with fresh new looks to send down the runway, paused to pay homage to their school's late alumnus, Alexander McQueen.
