Laura Cramer and Starr Hout called their second resort lineup a palate-cleanser. “It’s an ode to the American Southwest, something very near and dear to our hearts,” said Cramer. The duo drew from the city of Galisteo, New Mexico, specifically, pulling inspiration from its mountainous landscape with wavelike prints and stripes that mimicked the horizon lines in neutral tones mixed with navy blue, blush, citron and cactus green.
Rich in texture, the collection mixed thin ribbed sweaters and chunky, fringed poncho knits with bohemian blouses and dresses in silk and linen blends. A ruffled sleeveless cropped top with an elastic band — a detail added to several looks to convey a feeling of ease — felt playfully feminine, as did a sleeveless halter dress with pom-poms that could be unbuttoned for a sexier look. “We picture our woman on the road traveling, happy and comfortable,” Cramer said.
