June 08, 2009 New York
"Luxurious but relaxed" is how Behnaz Sarafpour describes her designs, and her latest effort was no exception. Her version of a "structured" jacket, for example, was left unlined and cut in a lightweight silk, while sarong-inspired wrap detailing added a laid-back touch to other pieces. Seaside references popped up in places, too; skinny trousers came with scubalike panels and a micro-jersey tank dress in nautical stripes. A cheeky chiffon halter dress with sea creature appliqués may have taken the theme too literally, but other items—light-as-air oversize knotted necklaces priced under $200, for one—should spell fair weather ahead for this Resort collection.
