For Resort 2013, Peter Dundas took inspiration from safari dressing and army surplus stores, resulting in a collection with an easy-to-wear undercurrent. While he didn't step away from the caftans and sexy, embellished evening gowns he's known for, there was a new focus on options for day as well. Those included embroidered olive cargo pants paired with a bright sky blue double-breasted blazer and shirtdresses cinched at the waist with wide grosgrain belts. Perhaps this newfound dedication to day-to-night dressing has something to do with the 11 new stores the company plans to open soon: Dundas will cut the ribbon at the first New York flagship in September.
