A LIGHT HAND
Paris: Botanicals are Cacharel’s calling card, their illustrated florals a sweet through line every season. Designers Ling Liu and Dawei Sun updated the look for S/S 13 with an airy, light hand. Printed tissue chiffon dresses were transparent and fitted pointelle knits shredded, while even cropped shorts seemed as if they’d float away via sheer silk overlays. Many of the patterns came blurred, including retro checks and fan repeats rendered in a punchy tangerine. Liu and Sun also resurrected vintage classics like swing coats and shirt dresses, infusing them with a youthful and clean energy. Refreshing and approachable, Spring at Cacharel was a well-pitched move forward for the Junior brand. —Nina Stotler
