Peter Som looked to Marrakesh — and specifically, the actress Talitha Getty's adventures there in the late '60s — for Resort 2013. The result? A collection filled with enough lace, jacquard, and winding prints to make even the most hardened minimalist think twice. Sounds wild, yes (Getty was, after all, legendary for her bohemian style), but Som is nothing if not a classicist, and so these romantic textures and patterns are tempered by Som's even, linear way with a silhouette — and made all the more appealing for it. "A sense of wanderlust and nomad chic pervades this Resort collection," Som explained. "Mosaic and textile inspired prints mingle with signature tweed and lace to create a collection that is about everyday wearability with a touch of escapism."
Available for preorder now through Aug. 14 at Moda Operandi.
