New York Fashion Week Series: Peter Som's Spring 2010 Collection

I could never pull off Grandma’s pearls, purses, and pumps like Peter Som’s models did this Fashion Week. For spring Som resurrected incredibly classic cuts with unusually bold prints.
Saturated floral tops, cinched waists, and an Audrey-inspired little black dress evoked everyday glamour. A black promenade jacket draped over high-waisted swim shorts screamed pinup girl. For a contemporary twist to traditional gear, a silver field jacket was paired with a yellow mini.
And while my untamed creativity as a little girl may have given me confidence in the attic, the white leather jacket and go-go boots were locked up for a reason.
