American painter Ellsworth Kelly’s influence was palpable throughout Rosetta Getty’s playful, lighthearted resort collection. Bold lines and colorful stripes were seen throughout:  A multihued, midlength mock turtleneck dress juxtaposed vertical vs. horizontal patterns, while an off-the- shoulder, flared-sleeve top and matching skirt ensemble featured starkly contrasting, broad black and white bands.


There was also an undercurrent of Americana, both in the palette (red white and blue were all prominent) and in cute denimlike pieces, which were actually done in an indigo tweed. Most memorable: a cool mididress, cut like an apron with criss-crossing straps in back.
