From Miro-esque prints in primary hues to washes of pastels, color was everywhere in Twinkle by Wenlan's Spring collection. The rainbow array was anchored with heavy doses of black and white, which kept the collection cohesive, and lent well to 80s-influenced details like stripes, miniskirts and etched leggings. Flowing tops and dresses were universally wearable, and the collection's ubiquitous patterns were playful rather than dizzying. All cheeky, upbeat pieces that make us look forward to spring.
