The idea of friendship and the female bond was the starting point for Erin Fetherston's Resort effort. "I was thinking a lot about friendships and 'girl time,' so I asked my friend Linda to stay with me for a few weeks," she said. Linda as in Linda Vojtova, the Czech model and longtime Fetherston muse. Drawing from Vojtova's style as well as vintage ballet costume silhouettes and the work of photographer David Hamilton, the best friends ended up shooting the lookbook together, showing off Fetherston's ethereal dresses, tops, and skirts.

The word ethereal is overused, but in the case of Fetherston, it's apt. Pleated chiffon dresses—in mint, cherry, and nude—were offset by starry sequins on their bodices. A gold metallic jacquard laid over an abstract polka dot almost resembling a leopard print lent a bit of sexiness to a goddess gown. And an out-of-her-comfort-zone black body-con number was made feminine with an overlay of shimmering rose gold lace. Try as she might've once upon a time, Fetherston never really stretches beyond pretty in her work. Over the past couple of years, and certainly this season, it feels like she's accepted that. She owns her fate. And it looks lovely.
