Fun, Sporty, Sexy and surprisingly Chic, Norma Kamali's Excellent and Lively Resort 2016 presentation was one of the happiest surprises of the season, Filled with Easily accessible and wearable Active "Athleisure" pieces as well as more refined wear for day and evening alike, Kamali injected a Youthful and Playful Joie de Vivre into her collection that was infectious and amazingly adult, not ever really veering into Tween territory of the Forever 21/Hollister variety!
Features of the collection that were indicative of the mood, Lots of Sweats and Swimwear/Dancewear in the form of Leotards and Leggings, Raw-edge Denim (Most notably fine in a Trench/Skinny Jean configuration and a Skinny Jean Pantsuit that was be welcome Downtown as it would be on holiday!) Draped Jersey that was Exceptionally well done and Gold Leather. That Gold Leather was whipped into a Saucy Trench that had the imprint of the good ol' days of Donna Karan and looked extremely fabulous! Not to mention the final look, a Snakeskin print Goddess gown that put the SSSS Back in Slither!
Kamali showed an abundant collection full of pieces to bring joy to the hearts and smiles to the faces of shoppers everywhere. This resort collection had enough options to keep a woman busy for months and come Spring, she'll already have plenty of options to rework the new influx of items into many different permutations. To Quote Ina Garten, "How Easy Is That?"
