Christina Economou’s resort collection referenced an overall “out-of-office” mind-set — with Cuba as the specified getting-away spot. “You look at the botanical print and it makes you happy; it makes you want to take a vacation,” Economou said on a phone call from her native Greece, where the collection is designed and manufactured. “I envisioned a woman that’s traveling.” Working in a punchy, tropical color palette, Economou’s lineup emphasized ease indeed, with printed floaty, ruffled silk dresses, boyfriend-style Bermuda shorts and cropped flares in lightweight blue denim.
Rompers done in tangerine jacquard and brocade conveyed a flirty young vibe. But the vacation destination shifted slightly with a few looks rendered in neutrals — particularly a khaki jumpsuit and coordinating flap-pocket jacket — which seemed fit for going on safari.
