Key Takeaways: For the debut of Imitation of Christ’s denim line, Tara Subkoff went Dark Americana. The IOC show mixed innocent pieces like jumpers and little girl sundresses with come hither High red heels, racy lace-up detailing, and bondage-style handcuffs. As the show progressed, the clothes lightened up, first with distressed denim looks. The show finished with a ballet of retro-style chiffon dresses.

What’s Wearable: Most everything. T-shirts and jeans—very white bread. The sundresses are adorable. The chiffon dresses are also party-able.
