Inspired by a Cecil Beaton photo of his sister Baba, Wes Gordon combined romance with a nonchalant, young attitude for spring. “It’s the idea of how to make luxury relevant to the girls who are my peers — I’m 25,” said Gordon. “We did that with color, with beautiful fabrics, with separates.” The result was an impressive, diverse lineup that balanced dressed-up and more casual looks, even as the designer insisted there was no real demarcation between day and evening. From the double-faced cropped jacket paired with python shorts to a silk-and-cashmere cardigan with a jacquard tweed dégradé embroidered skirt to a printed silk organza T-shirt with a dirndl skirt, it all worked. The overall mood was one of youthful polish pulsing with a current of cool.
