Mira Mikati never wants to grow up. A Peter Pan-inspired desert island world was the backdrop for her colorful, cartoonlike creations for spring.
Parrots, exotic blooms and airplanes floated as giant appliqués or painted graffitilike motifs across a series of ample striped dresses, biker jackets, bombers, blouses, hoodies and nightwear-inspired designs like a pair of wide blue-and-white striped pajamas — lest we forget that Wendy, Michael and John Darling flew out into the night sky through the nursery window. An appliquéd 3-D star motif on a white dress and navy satin jumpsuit reminded us of that, too.
Mikati enhanced her world of primary colors this season with a greater focus on embroideries and the introduction of appliquéd candy-bead motifs on certain designs.
