“Italians do it better” was the tag line of Elisabeth Schwaiger’s Laurèl show, which was inspired by what Sophia Loren would have packed for a trip to Portofino. The sequined high-waisted shorts with matching bralet tops skewed a bit young, but the “Dolce Vita” dresses with fitted bodices, trim waists and A-line skirts were flattering, and came in rich floral patterns and scarlet and turquoise gingham. Schwaiger dropped in another reference to Sixties Italy with well-cut black capri pants topped with a champagne silk blouse. Bouclé coats with three-quarter-length sleeves and oversize scarlet and white lapels were another highlight.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"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)
