Maria Cornejo has a quiet success on her hands; and I mean that in the best possible way. With her unassuming collection, she provides the luxury and ease without any sort of fussiness. Just cool and easy. Moreover, her flowing cocoon shapes can hide a number of assumed flaws on the body. The volume is always well controlled without seeming that way. She creates flattering silhouettes with intriguing accents along with some rather unusual accessories (like that golden cocoon bag). I guess I just really like the vibe I get from Zero+Maria Cornejo; there’s an effortlessness about it. And certainly not the “I really spent 5 gazillion hours putting this outfit together but don’t I look so wonderfully thrown together” sort of effortlessness.
