For Ann Taylor’s summer collection, creative director Lisa Axelson said she was thinking about “the dream vacation that those of us who are working women often don’t have the time to take.”
The clothes had the ease of Portofino or Capri, infused with a touch of American classic. For example, a seersucker fabric was used for a Fifties fit-and-flare dress, while striped linen shorts were shown with a tailored blazer and a linen shell top for a look that Axelson described as a summer alternative to the suit.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
