Stacks of dusty, smelly old books at the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen Library served as an appropriate backdrop for Araks Yeramyan’s idiosyncratic yet charming spring collection. The looks painted a picture of a bookish schoolgirl destined to spend her summers in Martha’s Vineyard and the rest of the year at an Ivy League university. The fresh-faced models looked like accidental fashion plates, wearing seemingly clashing wardrobe staples together in an interesting visual harmony. Romantic floral and dot print button-up shirts peaked out beneath striped sweaters and blazers. Burnt orange met tangerine and periwinkle met light blue chambray, with sprinkles of navy and seashell pink thrown in as an anchor. Standout pieces included a floral-beaded cardigan with organza trim, and a half pleated crepe/ half satin tunic dress. The clothes were not necessarily innovative, but so appealing in their classic simplicity that they would be a must-have for any girl to own and mix and match in endless wardrobe combinations.
