Growing up, sisters Kristen and Alexandra O’Neill shared a bedroom that was an explosion of chintz — wallpaper, bedding and even a lamp. For their spring Porter Grey collection, they channeled that vibe with floral patterns mashed together with Fifties and Sixties silhouettes reminiscent of what guests wore to their grandparents’ garden parties. It all worked to a very sweet, wearable effect. They made sure to filter in a few minimal nonprinted looks as well, such as soft white button-up blouses, wrap miniskirts and a perforated leather dress.
