Gypsy tomboys, flower girls and downtown cowboys were the archetypes listed in Vera Wang’s resort notes. The trio came together in a dark, beautiful lineup with a modern take on grunge at its core. It was particularly strong in the layered looks, such as the slightly sheer rose-printed habotai shirt gown, which, unbuttoned from waist down, was layered over pebble Lurex shorts. The duality of mannish and feminine also played into the grungy notion, i.e., a shiny 3-D floral-sequined dress that Wang showed under an elongated, tuxedo-tailed wool cardigan. In a continuation on her charming word play from fall, “Stop It” was worked in intarsia on the cardigan’s back.
