Michael Angel was spot on trend for Resort. The designer revisited the classic Hawaiian shirt (which we've seen quite a few references to this season) with his signature digital prints. Except instead of blowing up a hibiscus photograph (his normal technique), Angel shrunk it down to thumbnail size and used it in a tiled pattern on a few pieces, such as a high-necked silk tank with a cinched, drawstring waist.
There were still plenty of large-scale prints, though. For example, a giant, screened portrait of Christy Turlington (Angel's muse for Fall) turned up on a long skirt, which was paired with a leather sweatshirt that had cutout shoulders. The aforementioned hibiscus picture was also blown up and patchworked on a sweet shirtdress with a rugby collar. Surprisingly enough, some of the best looks here came sans print. One highlight was a tomato red dress with a long skirt and sleeves that had a dramatic cutout in back. Another was the cloudy plastic trenchcoat, a top seller from Angel's Spring collection (we spied a similar one at Celine a few days later). Angel laughed, "Who would've thought that latex would do so well?"
