The result was a playful and inspired lineup of pieces that a girl will really want rather than need. There was an obvious take on volume — most memorably on a pink and green off-the-shoulder puffy sleeve minidress and a red flared halter midi dress. “It all stemmed from the idea of colorful hot air balloons over the savannah,” she said. That explained the African references on tribal-print skirts, hand-painted stripes and a cool raffia-fringed skirt — because who needs black pants when you can have any those.
