CALIFORNIA DREAMIN’
London: For her spring collection, Scottish designer Holly Fulton imagined a California beach babe on a road trip down the coast to Mexico. The designer’s signature digital prints featured the art deco designs favored by many roadside motels, as well as sexy pin-up girls. Fulton sent out beachy road-trip essentials, including printed bikinis, easy shorts polo shirts, and woven tees, but there were also put-together looks featuring tailored jackets and slim skirts. Roses later emerged as a key motif, appearing as prints and appliqués. Their shapes were also beaded onto pink, dusty purple or clear plastic, which was formed into cropped jackets and the show’s most compelling dress. –Joanna Manganaro
