Vibrant active-inspired looks with minimalist restraint at Milly

New York: Michelle Smith, creative director of contemporary brand Milly, tapped into this season’s trends sending out a youthful array of ensembles for Spring 2014. The lineup was mostly done in contrasting black and white, lending a minimal contrast to the fun brights at the heart of the collection. Must-have bombers stood out in rigid mesh organza with a sheer quality, adding depth to multi-layered looks. –Deirdre Pérez
