'Tis the season for easy pieces, and designers are delivering them in a variety of ways. Derek Lam, inspired by a recent trip to Kyoto, Japan, showed languid dresses with understated baby kimono sleeves, obi waists and subtle draping. Peter Som, meanwhile, said he channeled "natty, old-school elegance mixed with an indulgent spoonful of Seventies decadence," which translated into soft shorts with frayed edges and oversize bows on tops. Alexander Wang looked to water sports and aerodynamic design for his collection, featuring slight twists of fabric and shots of neon. "The twisted details evoke the laid-back nature of wet hair knotted in a towel," said Wang. For Thakoon Panichgul's first resort lineup, the designer took a "sporty safari on an acid trip," playing with layers and round shapes. One Thakoon standout was a bright floral camouflage top paired with a multipocketed hooded jacket and broken-in rolled shorts. Roberto Cavalli also offered some soft, flowing shapes, but he ushered in sexy, shorter lengths, too, as well as a bold lynx motif.
