Stacey Bendet sought to capture an intellectual bohemian vibe for her Alice + Olivia resort collection. “Everything has this slightly Seventies-retro feel but in a really modernized way,” she said. Bendet’s signature elongated vests came fringed and embroidered this season, and she worked bold floral tapestries and paisley prints onto jackets, skirts and maxidresses with lace insets.
Feminine touches adorned a series of bell-bottoms, the lineup’s dominant pant silhouette — one pair in white with a chic braided detail at the waist, another featuring colorful embroidery — providing a perfect match for her playfully embroidered knitwear. A black sequined minidress mixed a contrast of bold and soft colors and made an effortless fashion statement when paired with matching slides.
