Best known for his highly embellished evening collection, Naeem Khan chose to bolster day this season — and he did so with flair. He played with Moroccan references using a rich palette that ranged from neutrals to pops of bold color, interspersed with some great digital prints of a breaking ocean and fiery red sunset, which appeared on flouncy cocktail dresses. A white leather mosaic was appliquéd onto a black shift dress and bustier, while a handful of jackets and dresses had an easy tailoring and glamour perfect for the Palm Beach set. Khan’s silhouette was cleaner and lighter than in seasons past, due not only to the airy fabrics but also a new restraint in his signature beadwork. It felt cohesive rather than overbearing. Even fully beaded evening gowns appeared lighter — notably the nude Deco-inspired caftan.
