Giovanna Randall went into labor with her first child the day she presented her debut Resort collection for Honor. That, if anything, is a testament to the designer’s hardworking nature. Inspired by Roy Lichtenstein’s midcentury pop art, Randall layered a custom horizon print over gradated polka dots and showed the graphic combination on the lineup’s standout piece: a cotton organza spaghetti-strap shift with a translucent overlay that appeared to float over the body (pictured). It particularly stood out in the Kate Young-styled lookbook, themed “the Honor woman takes a staycation,” shot in the lush Carroll Gardens backyard of Randall’s personal interior designer, Fawn Galli. Staying true to form, the designer focused her attention on the rich, high-quality fabrics she was working with. A knife-pleat, A-line skirt in a creamy shade of key lime was cut from a coated silk so substantial, the skirt actually stood up on its own when placed on the studio floor. Referencing her quirky Lichtenstein-esque pattern and subtle tailoring details like laser-cut illusion double collars, Randall told Style.com, “These clothes are a reminder that both beauty and oddity surround us at every turn.”
