For Resort, Kevork Kiledjian swapped out the heavy furs and skins shown at his debut Fall show in favor of lighter fabrics. He also softened up his tough bombshell aesthetic significantly. But if this collection was less aggressive than his first, that didn't mean it was any less sexy: A blush-colored jumpsuit had a crossways silk overlay and deep V-neck, while a crepe slipdress in the same pale pink came with a sheer skirt that began at the upper mid-thigh. Many of these pieces derived their allure from sky-high slits, see-through mesh, or some combination of both.

The most covetable look was also the most imaginative—knit flares with a second-skin fit paired with a royal blue silk cropped top that had a cascading train in back. "This collection is quite a bit different from my last, but still headed in the same direction," Kiledjian said. It looks like he'll need a few more seasons to figure out what exactly that direction is, but on the promise of this outing we're willing to go along for the ride.
