Victor De Souza is an Argentina-born designer based in New York City known creating custom pieces for celebrities Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Rihanna. Formerly a creative director at Ruskin, De Souza created his eponymous label in 2009.

I was front and center for De Souza’s S/S 2016 presentation at New York Fashion Week, and his signature cinched waists and elegant edge were in full force. De Souza brought back the ruffle in a big way, along with impeccably tailored pants, complete with flowing side panel, shirts that oscillated with each step, and a caped finale gown reminiscent of an elegant sea creature. These soft elements perfectly balanced a harder metallic edge supplied by a plethora of studs.

Personally, I was most entranced by De Souza’s creative use of denim. The designer’s attentive lines and structural approach to denim will upgrade your jean game from standard to eye-catching. This season’s collection was much harder than what we have seen prior from De Souza and we must say, Victor, we love the edge.
