It’s refreshing when male designers say they understand what women (not girls) want, and truly get it. For their latest collection of wear-everywhere dresses, not to mention the occasional jumpsuit and separates, Jeffrey Costello and Robert Tagliapietra hit upon another group of bankable pieces. Drawing inspiration from a favorite Georgia O’Keeffe quote about the beauty of flowers, the duo created a custom print by digitally layering photos of gardens atop each other, resulting in a look that was more batik than flower. The print — as well as some strong solids — was used on dresses, mostly in a slinky jersey in various cuts: halterneck, cowl-neck, draped, ruched, slit open at the back, gathered in a big sash at the waist. “There are many different ways one can wear our dresses,” said Costello. “Each can make it their own.”
