    Zero + Maria Cornejo Spring 2013 Runway Review: The Zero + Maria Cornejo Spring 2013 line is a mix of structure and draped slouch, with a very modern edge, and dark, some seemingly Autumnal colors – with a final splash of bright white.

Here’s the big “is-this-really-Helmut-Lang” factor: kaleidoscope floral prints and brocades!  Yes, it’s a fact.  I am not sure how I feel about that element of the collection – the prints are executed well on stiff, sheen poly/nylon, and certainly are more modern versus girlie, it’s just so un-Helmut.  The bright…
