Another of London’s fresh young talents, ex-Balmain designer Roberta Einer took Miami Beach and its glitzy Ocean Drive nightlife, rap culture and neon lights as her inspiration for spring, presenting a confident collection that showed maturity and an intelligent sense of humor.

Imagining what the likes of Bianca Jagger and Janice Dickinson might wear by the pool at a grand Miami Beach hotel, she used the pastels hues of the city’s Art Deco architecture — greens, blues, pinks and neons, offset with black. There were a few tight-and-tiny dresses, and bikini shapes that looked great under robe-like jackets.

Hooded tops, like the one in a technical silk and PVC fabric, referenced hip-hop culture. She worked with Swarovski on three showpiece looks, including a drop-dead leather bomber that glittered with crystal dust.

Yes, it was flashy — that’s her background at Balmain showing — but the lovely baby pink velvet shorts suit showed she’s capable of restraint.
