Although Luca Luca's creative director Raul Melgoza referenced classic American sportswear for resort, not all was as it seemed. What looked like traditional seersucker was actually a silk shantung print. And a denim-look coat, made from a luxurious silk/wool blend, would likely not have struck Levi Strauss as traditional work wear. While some of the tailored pieces were overwrought, the summery dresses, like a navy blue number with openwork details and an adjustable collar, captured the ease of the season.
