Jei Kim said Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night” video and California teenage culture from the Seventies and Eighties inspired her spring Fleamadonna collection. She worked a print of tiny random objects like lips, glasses and cherries into a sequence of garments including a peplum top, a sheer blouse, trousers and a pajama-style shirt. Drop-waisted dresses and skirts of varying lengths came in a pink polka-dotted transparent fabric and a sturdier blue-and-white check, while lace featured prominently, particularly in long skirts.

Some of Kim’s most interesting looks came when she juxtaposed sporty sweats with more ladylike pieces, layering a boxy sweatshirt, for instance, over a lace blouse or pairing sweatpants with a midriff-bearing shirt. Kooky glasses and floral veils topped off the youthful, fun feel.
