The show represented the Torrid woman – bold, beautiful and badass with looks featuring the juxtaposition between hard and soft. Hard edge corsets and leather moto jackets topped flowy, feminine pieces for an unexpected contrast that encompasses the many sides of a woman. The collection was also peppered with signature, hand-painted elements. NYX Professional Makeup’s neutral palette and Redken’s loose waves enhanced each girls’ natural features, along with shimmering gold nails courtesy of Essie.

“The collection is about art and expression—and the fusion of those two things. We also explored the idea that apparel should reflect the many sides of a woman—she’s never just one thing. The overall result is a juxtaposition between feminine and hard-edge artistry,” explained Torrid designers Liz Munoz and Kim Sippl.
