Who doesn't love a good 1960s reference? Barbara Tfank was thinking of David Bailey's photos of Jean Shrimpton when designing Resort's set of neat little numbers. "It could be one person's wardrobe," Tfank said of the collection, which took inspiration from mod styling.

Indeed, it wasn't hard to imagine one of Tfank's private clients snapping up a good chunk of the lineup. For lunch out, there was a shift in a coral-and-green floral print that looked like it was painted on. Beachside cocktails were taken care of with a cotton matelassé pencil skirt, white bandeau top, and shimmering swing jacket made of a silk polyester that almost glowed. More casual afternoons might require the navy peplum sweater, hand-crocheted in New York. And when it comes to evening, it would be hard to go wrong with a waist-whittling, scoop-neck dress in metallic mint matelassé.

It's a fantasy life, to be sure. But just the sort of fantasy Tfank should be shilling.
