Daybreak — the sight of the sun rising over a beach — inspired Valentina Kova’s resort collection, its palette of gray, blush and flesh tones evoking “that time of morning where the sky is not yet blue,” as the designer put it. Kova, who favors solid separates in luxurious fabrics, offered mostly fluid versions that could transition from day into evening. For example, a white sheer trench could work either as a swimsuit cover-up or, in a more urbane setting, with a camisole and trousers; and a lovely flared bolero could slip equally well over an evening gown or a day slip.
