Som’s prints and black graphic check overlays, topping off crisp shirt dresses, were so pointedly visual, they’ll look decidedly Som when you trot them out. Isn’t that just the kind of pointed message every designer aims for without having to splash their name and logo over everything? Every Spring, florals and stripes pop up like groundhogs to remind us they’re still there predicting that winter will also likely be full of fur and houndstooth. But on Som’s runway, there was a decidedly standout Pop Art appeal.
Let’s also have a moment for those silver tassled sandals that took inspiration from brogues, shall we? We would like to thank designers for increasingly promoting a merciful return to flats after the era of platforms and 6-inch skyscrapers. We’ve eyed an increasing number of sneakers and flats front row this season. Also, the apron-esque overlays, done in contrasting patterns to the dresses below, added some wardrobe versatility and a simple olive, navy, and white stripe strapless top worn over white flowy pants was the kind of easy, chic summertime attire one could envision in all kinds of warm weather locales. Som put the art of tailoring to the test by showing a lot of button downs on his catwalk. And not boring white ones; there was a pale pink silk top, paired with a painterly floral coat and no pants and a chambray shirt dress topped with a stripe-y vest dress. To close the show, there was another simply elegant number: a reddish orange strapless gown that will make its celebrity red carpet appearance in no time.
