Milan: A runway lined with fresh-cut grass set the scene for Kristina Ti’s light-as-air, frolicsome spring collection. Filled with fresh gingham prints, Dust Bowl-era calico florals and pretty puffs of crinkled chiffon and guipure lace, the collection was made for picturesque picnics. Lingerie lies at the heart of the brand, and this season, linen-blend lawn sleepover sets, Victorian-inspired lace bed jackets, girly rompers and boxer-style shorts with dolphin hems captured the easygoing, romantic direction currently happening in the market. Even ready-to-wear items were influenced by the finer underlayer, as picot elastics trimmed five-pocket slim pants and lace edgings provided allover decoration for camisoles and poet blouses. At times, the wispy, well-ruffled looks got a little too cutesy and sentimental, but more substantial items, like a leather dress punched with a ditsy floral pattern and sand-colored crossover pants, brought a contemporary edge to all the sweetness.
