NEW YORK (AP) — With healthy doses of bright pinks and yellows, in butterfly prints and a palm motif, Naeem Khan’s spring-summer collection felt sunny side up at New York Fashion Week.
There was, of course, plenty of the bling Khan is known for in gowns that have landed on the backs of queens and first ladies. Those allowed to wear open backs, one-shoulder in jersey and raffia fringe are more than welcome.
Khan was inspired this time around by Halston, Studio 54, Andy Warhol and Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball. It was a journey back as the designer reminisced about his first impressions of the city, its underground and the 1970s and ’80s.
