Andy Warhol’s oxidation series as well as the scrap metal works of Ghanaian artist El Anatsui informed Reed Krakoff for resort. The designer wanted to “take something luxurious and do it in an artisanal way.” He worked laminated textures and metallic embellishment in casual silhouettes. A chiffon T-shirt dress, for example, was decked out in shimmery yellow, blue and pink square sequins; a similar tank was shown with a patterned honeycomb skirt in a tech material. The latter played to the sportier side of the lineup, which also featured several cobalt blue numbers, like the blouson jacket, color-blocked polo and matching slouchy pants, which he teamed with his new sneakers inspired by Oxford shoes.
