Cacharel Cruise/Resort 2013


New York: Ling Liu and Dawei Sun, the relatively new designers for Cacharel, looked to vintage images of female tennis stars for inspiration for their current collection. They styled many of the looks with a pair of bright white tennis shoes. Other homages to the sport included a pair of navy sweater dresses, a pleated white skirt and flat-front mid-thigh-length shorts. As the house is known for its prints, Liu and Sun included plenty of compelling motifs. Sine waves, vintage-y micro florals, crystalline butterflies and flowers made from jewels were among the motifs presented. The orphan Annie hairdo enhanced the youthful feel of this sweet collection. –Joanna Manganaro
