Shoshanna Gruss imagined her jet-setting Shoshanna girls perusing spice markets in Indonesia. That explained the pre-fall lineup’s richly textured looks — heavy on embroidered laces and peekaboo eyelets — and its earthy palette of saffrons and fiery reds. Comprised of day-to-cocktail minidresses and a few evening looks from her Shoshanna Midnight range, the collection skewed ultra-feminine with tiered ruffles, bell sleeves, off-the-shoulder necklines and flirty gingham prints. “All of it has a Sixties/Seventies Talitha Getty feel,” Gruss said during a walk-through. Her paisley-printed, blouson-sleeve gypsy dresses and eyelet tunics certainly invoked a bohemian sensibility, perfect to pack for a journey to Southeast Asia — or anywhere, really.
