Beth Bugdaycay launched her Foundrae brand earlier this year with a full-fledged fall collection — including jewelry — just in time for the February wholesale market. For her first official resort collection, the creative director had her eye on the Egyptian revival, which started in the 19th century and flourished throughout the Twenties.
An eclectic, bohemian feel reverberated throughout the looks, particularly the flowing, printed dresses with pops of color and an oversize vest with fringed, beaded tassels. “We keep describing our girl as artful and refined,” Bugdaycay said. “There’s an ease about it.” Graphic elements, such as colorful leather snakeskin and suede patches on sweaters, added a modern, unexpected update to the collection’s more basic items.
