Best Luxe Looks NYFW: Naeem Khan’s Vintage Mediterranean

American luxury culture in the 50’s and 60’s was obsessed with the Mediterranean as the top luxury vacation destination. Naeem Khan channeled this inspiration in his S/S16 RTW collection with the classic elegance of Sophia Loren, Jackie Kennedy, Grace Kelly, and Brigitte Bardot as his muses, imagining how they would dress for parties while on vacation in the south of France or Capri. The resulting ornate gowns showcased a palette of vibrant coral, marigold, lemon, cornflower, fuschia, lilac and pink in classic silhouettes. The bateau necklines popped up in several looks and paired perfectly with the high slit skirts. Highlights for me were an off-the-shoulder striped chevron gown, a fire engine red caped chiffon gown, and a Grecian inspired blue, green and marigold gown that looked both Mediterranean and Art Deco.
