(NEW YORK) Peter Som looked to the photographs of Slim Aarons for his Bill Blass resort collection. “I wanted to capture the exuberant spirit and effortless chic of ladies lounging poolside at Eden Roc,” said Som. “While their look is undeniably luxurious, it’s tempered by a sporty, almost tomboy-like quality.” Translating, and updating that aesthetic, Som presented classic sportswear separates and dresses fashioned in vibrant hues and prints. A collection of red carpet-worthy evening dresses in jersey and silk, some accented with pockets and unexpected jeweled details, round out the fantastic looks.
