Giovanna Randall was inspired by the drippy and easy silhouettes of the early 1900s for her extensive resort lineup, which featured feminine suits, sweet day dresses, pleatlike skirts that were actually strips of fabric and plenty of romantic evening dresses in loose and airy shapes. Stumbling upon Paul Cornoyer’s painting “Madison Square Park After Rain” while researching the collection, she used it as a guide for colors and an actual print based on the artist’s work. Randall also played with tone-on-tone textures and luxe fabrics such as rich tweeds, bubbled cloque, liquid sateen and jacquards reminiscent of wallpaper or an old tin ceiling.
