Tess Giberson viewed her spring collection as a sequel to resort, which took its cues from the late German architect Walter Gropius’ house in Lincoln, Mass. “I was going further into the different moments and the details of the house,” she said of the collection, shown in collaboration with artist Lizzi Bougatsos (also the lead singer of Gang Gang Dance) who created an installation surrounding the clothes that played with ideas of domesticity.

Giberson drew from architectural and decorative elements of the Gropius residence: the texture of a pillow, the colors in a painting, interpreting them via textural plays such as fringe — seen on oversize vests and dresses — and patchwork laser-cut leather detailing. Grommets, mesh insets and lace-up details used on shirtdresses and skirts added a little sex appeal to her signature creamy, hand-loomed sweaters and ribbed-knit pants.
