Resort is in full bloom as designers play with feminine garden prints. Roberto Cavalli says he “channeled the elegance and style of Sixties American aristocrats vacationing in European hot spots such as Rome, Saint-Tropez and the British countryside,” which translates into sexy, vibrant dresses for Just Cavalli. Meanwhile, Nathalie Gervais, the designer behind Piazza Sempione, uses an engineered floral print for her crisp tunics. Jill Stuart, for her part, goes for romance with a dramatic, floor-sweeping dress in a watercolor-painting motif. “I thought of a girl in the summer strolling in an English garden, promenading by the Seine or eating gelato in Florence,” she says. Finally, Nanette Lepore is inspired by the New Year’s colorful festivities at the Rockhouse resort in Jamaica, which brings out a flock of bright, floral-print party dresses.
