As the show’s title, Remix, suggested, Tess Giberson took on a classic theme — preppy collegiate — and reworked it with a fresh eye for a result that was anything but. In her hands, plaid became a faint print used on a feminine silk chiffon slipdress, and white-and-navy stripes, a prepster staple, were contrasted with sweet crochet sleeves on a chic tunic. While some of Giberson’s mesh knits with bold holes didn’t work, her racy take on the schoolgirl uniform — transparent shirts over bandeau tops, shown with short skirts — provided a sexy counterpoint.
