Luize Salmgrieze for Alice + Olivia Resort 2015

Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet hit the books again for Resort, with a collection inspired by‬ One Special Summer.‬ The fancifully illustrated travelogue of Jacqueline and Lee Bouvier’s trip to the Continent when they were, respectively, 22 and 18, chronicles their exploits—and even a few brushes with would-be suitors. The designer riffed on the glamour of mid-century European‬ travel through pattern and silhouette, with sweet separates like A-line skirts (one boasted horsehair for a fifties fullness) and culottes. A floor-length shirtdress in a floral hammered silk was memorable; Bendet scored with her more-vintage-inspired prints.‬‬
