Peter Som: Surf's up
A graphic blue wave print set the stage, or surf, as it were, for Peter Som’s joyous, surf-inspired romp on Friday morning. Models in chic flat oxfords wore retro-style bathing suits and smart mixed-media jackets of snakeskin, raffia and neoprene.
Notable were the crop tops. Everything from a bralette (expected) to a pale-blue button-down chambray were cut to expose the midriff. (Note to self: Stop eating cookies.)
After a day at the beach (or the bistro), nighttime took on a decidedly more restrained demeanor. There were awning stripes, an airy silken halter dress in coral and a series of white lacquered eyelet numbers (ohhhh, that white moto jacket) -- something for beach bunnies and landlubbers alike.
