CIMG4802.jpgDesigner Swaim Hutson showed that he has come a long way from his roots as a designer of a rock and roll collection. The presentation last night for Obedient Sons & Daughters proved why Hutson and his wife Christina were named among the top menswear designers in America last week by GQ and the CFDA. The collection for men, and now women showed us what the future can look like- a blend of traditional menswear fabrics and silhouettes -- wool continental jackets, pinstripe woven shirts-- with hunting elements such as riding jackets, hunting trousers with patched knees, and neck ties all styled and cut with a rock and roll attitude. the collection's connections to the music scene are still apparent-- the clothes still had a cutting edge that would suit any rock star-- leather MC jackets, pointy boots, and a surprising brocade smoking jacket that was reminiscent of Chinese waiter uniforms from the 70s..  The girls looked sexy in a feminized version of the menswear. Shorts worn with blazers or tuxedo jackets and sexy woven shirts looked just right for now. Windowpane plaid full trousers looked super sexy with mohair gloves. As a styling element, we are loving the ribbon bow ties worn by both men and women throughout the show.

More pics after the jump.
