Julie Paskal stuck to her kawaii, cartoony signatures using scalloping and exaggerated motifs and embroideries to create textures reminiscent of the Sixties.

There was a fun, almost kitsch vibe to the collection with some of the Neoprene pieces and ruched looks recalling old-school swimsuits and bathing caps. It underscored the summery mood, especially in the bra and skirt looks at the beginning and tanks with asymmetric skirts. For a run of bi-color cotton dresses, the designer  also used drawstrings to create ruched volumes, like a minimalist spin on baroque.

If it felt a bit one-note, the overall effect — what with the swimming-pool blues, turquoise and candy pink, plus simple, girly shapes — tickled the eye.
