With her sister Samantha as the DJ, Charlotte Ronson’s show opened with the ubiquitous “pop” of the wine jug from Dinosaur Jr.’s “Feel the Pain,” signaling the designer’s whimsy for the early Clinton era. Sheer flower-print dresses were layered over T-shirts, flannel button-ups were tied around waists a la Eddie Vedder, and models wore loose front braids and fake piercings. After the show, Ronson followed suit by pairing a  sweatshirt with a feminine floral, and she described why she’s suddenly smelling teen spirit. “The music was so great, and the look was so effortless. For me, it was very romantic and feminine. I think its very pretty, but it doesn’t look like you are trying too hard. And all girls want that, right?” That, and Jordan Catalano.
