NEW YORK — Light and easy looks are preeminent this season. Oscar de la Renta stayed true to his devoted clientele for resort while still offering plenty of options for today’s PYTs. He showed a range of lightweight looks, from Empire-waist dresses and delicate embroideries to lean suits and evening gowns paired with little shrugs. Michael Kors, meanwhile, added the right touch of glam to traditional holiday motifs such as Hawaiian florals and seersucker with slinky charmeuse cocktail dresses and Fifties-style princess numbers packed with pleats. And Vera Wang married Matisse’s rich color palette with Claire McCardell’s simplicity. The result: beautifully sculpted and embroidered taffeta dresses and easy bohemian separates.
