If I were to pick one collection from this Fashion Week that best represents Fab, it would be Peter Som. Seriously, I didn't want to leave this presentation; alas, I had to go to Marchesa . . . life is rough. Som has clearly moved past his turbulent Bill Blass past, fully opening his heart to his namesake. Som's Spring collection made me feel like a kid in a candy store. It was fresh, colorful, funky, youthful. There was so much spunk, it was probably overwhelming for the most pro-black jaded fashionista. Or, hopefully, it was eye-opening.
In every direction there was flirtation. There was a slight American feel via marine-stripes, sundresses, charm bracelets, and red, white and blue. You hear me talk about mixmastering — Som continues the conversation. A hodgepodge of colors and textures were swirled together; leopard, splash florals, embroidery, polka-dots, herringbone. Even woven belts were two-tone, sunglasses marbelized. The emphasis was on separates, and fun, lots and lots of fun.
