Midday at the Oasis

New York…Peter Som

If, heaven forbid, Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta were to retire, East Coast socialites should not fear, there are two designers ready to fill their inestimable shoes, Jason Wu and Peter Som. Last season Peter Som focused on the “quirky, dark, and idiosyncratic” but just like Mrs Herrera he did an about-face for spring focusing instead on the colors of the Sahara Desert; azure blue, saturated warm tones of pink and orange, balanced with khaki; his iconic figure, a woman at an oasis waiting for her Arabian lover! Flowing dresses and pants mixed with more structured pieces to create an overall ambiance of soft femininity.
