Tomas Maier focused on a print- and pattern-heavy resort collection, working with block-printing techniques and layered fabrics to “create something that’s not understandable at first,” he said. To his point, what a full-skirted poplin dress done in block-printed lace and lace-embellished motifs lacked in hanger appeal, transformed into a statement in craftsy sophistication when on the body. Sportier styles came in silk shantung worked in geometric patchworks on a boxy tunic over short shorts — a counterpoint to the easy femininity of dresses, simple in shape but layered with decorative treatments. A slipdress was done in painted sequins, and shifts in layers of macramé and fringe. To accessorize, there were raffia kitten heels, ombré bags and robust chain necklaces and cuffs.
