NEW YORK -- Designers are seeing the light this season. Carolina Herrera is opting for airy printed chiffons, many with reembroidered flowers and cutout hems. Vera Wang, inspired by Ancient Greece, has toga-draped dresses and gowns, adding tulle corsages here and ties there. Meanwhile, Mark Badgley and James Mischka are using delicate lace and embroidery on cashmere T-shirts, pants and long dresses for Badgley Mischka. And designer Piyawat Pattanapuckdee is carrying on the Halston tradition of attention-getting looks, offering bright, sexy dresses with plunging sides or backs.
“I’ve struggled my whole life to find a bathing suit that fits me that doesn’t look like a maternity bra. I’m proud of the line because it’s an accurate representation of me rather than me putting on someone else’s clothes,” says @atlantabean of her swimwear collaboration with @piaarrobio, LPA X ATL. The two decided on a swimwear collab and increased the industry standard size for the pieces. Read more about the line — and our interview with de Cadenet Taylor and Arrobio — on WWD.com #wwdfashion
