Andrea Lieberman practices an easy, everyday elegance, and gives A.L.C.'s canon of wardrobe staples a modern update each season. For Resort, the designer showed effortless yet evolved items like straightforward tanks split open in the back for an unexpected flash of skin (she built in thoughtful bralike straps and a bib detail, so her customer won't feel overly exposed), as well as leather crop tops and track pants—the kind of separates most girls seem to want right now. Every A.L.C. collection includes at least one or two covetable biker jackets, and in addition to offering the signature in standard leather, Lieberman also did one in wrinkly boiled cotton that nailed the concept of transitional dressing. Elsewhere, checkerboard jacquard pieces including a boxy, menswear-inspired car coat added a bit of structure and polish. In keeping with Lieberman's laid-back Los Angeles vibe, everything here was meant to be mixed and matched as desired, which speaks to the designer's refreshingly accessible approach to fashion.
