Naeem Khan Collection for New York Fashion Week Spring 2016

Naeem Khan is known for his beautiful and ornate gowns, and this season he did not disappoint. Inspired by sun-drenched gardens in the south of France, as well as the waters of Capri, Khan took us on a luxe journey through the Mediterranean. The collection channeled the Fifties and Sixties, with Sophia Loren, Grace Kelly, Brigitte Bardot and Jackie Kennedy as his muses. Khan imagined how they would dress for parties while on vacation.

The outcome was a collection brimming with rich embroideries, intricate beading, basket-weave sequins and woven raffia. A vibrant palette included sunset hues of yellow, orange and bright pink, as well as azure, lilac, red rose and celadon green. Even the runway itself was over the top, with a floral wall and an arched white doorway.

Standout looks included the cool paisley-embroidered coat over a matching romper that opened the show, a tan raffia gown with red lace embroidery, and several floral-beaded caftans. The lineup was all very grand and regal for sure, but at times, it veered a little too retro, especially with the oversize earrings and matching head scarves. It would have been nice to see Khan balance the aesthetic more in favor of the modern.
