NEW YORK — "I am particularly interested in presenting a fresh, feminine and modern approach to resort dressing,"said Alberta Ferretti after her Tuesday cruise show. She accomplished just that by taking a sporty, yet soft, approach to the season with a nautical-meets-camp motif, i.e., slouchy collared shirts, cool pleated shorts and boxy peajackets — many accented with preppy striped belts. Still, plenty of delicate evening dresses were to be had, this time with a light — and just right — sprinkling of beading.
At Akris on Wednesday, Albert Kriemler showed an architectural collection with, for instance, a contoured dress in green suede for day and a blue Swiss embroidered number with a geometric-cut neckline for evening. He added a touch of sportiness with double-collared silk jackets, oversize cashmere sweaters and tissue-weight cashmere tops.
