Times are tough for young designers today, but Moises de la Renta is boldly going where his father Oscar has been for ages by launching a clothing line of his very own. MDLR debuts this season, with many items retailing under $1,000. Style.com reports that Moises has a communications degree and “honed his fashion talent with extensive internships at Phat Farm and, of course, with his father.” Pieces include a little black dress, a Swiss-dot hoodie, stretch-leather pants, and a biker jacket with removable sleeves. Singer-D.J. Lissie Trullie (also the inspiration behind Philip Lim’s fall 2009 collection) posed for the look book. She met Moises while hanging out at the Beatrice. We don’t know Moises, but why does this sound so utterly perfect for him?
