A trip through her personal archives brought about Norma Kamali's latest Spring collection, which had a decidedly (and winningly) vintage feel compared to recent seasons. Rifling through stacked clear bins of her own collectible fine and costume jewelry, Kamali piled chains and bangles onto each look. She used a bolt of hand-crocheted Brazilian lace that had been sitting in her closet for years, cutting it into delicate gowns and capes, and also showed the fabric in a more modern context as an appliqué trim on raw denim jeans and its matching jacket (similar to the outfit Kamali herself was wearing at the appointment). The paper-weight taffeta halter gown with a dramatic lapel collar was a highlight; it looked like something a present-day Marilyn Monroe—perhaps Michelle Williams—might wear to host a dinner party. The designer's signature jersey pieces popped up, too. Soft rompers and cap-sleeve tea-length frocks came with white acrylic studs and subtle shoulder pads and rounded out the lineup, which was the strongest and most feminine we've seen from Kamali in years.
