Araks Yeramyan cited the style of Twenties French tennis icon Suzanne Lenglen as her key inspiration — a timely reference considering her presentation coincided with the conclusion of the U.S. Open. Yeramyan’s pretty take, however, had little to do with on-court dressing (although a photo of strings from a vintage racket was interpreted into a pattern shown on a sheer blazer). Lenglen had a penchant for layering and pleats so the designer translated them into such looks as a feminine floral-print chiffon dress worn over a black shirtdress, and wide, gathered skirts paired with pretty button-downs. Her striking neon pink fille coupe blouses and dresses, meanwhile, added a jolt of color to the lineup.
