Actress Greta Gerwig. Pretty ladies Lauren Remington Platt, Dalia Oberlander, Annabel Tollman, and Paz de la Huerta. Oh, and Bryan Boy.

White, black, and yellow leather cone-heel thong sandals -- they were tough and a little minimal; single-strand pearl necklaces from Phillip Crangi's Giles & Brother line; custom frames, mostly translucent ones, from Sol Moscot.

First exit of flowing short silk georgette robe flying over and above a two-piece faded-orange-cantaloupe bathing suit with yellow high-heel thong sandals; silk chiffon long-sleeve dress in the same bright cantaloupe with an open O-shape back; black halter-neck Rudi Gernreich-like one-piece swimsuit; dark-olive canvas trench with black leather trim and zipper detail; closing look of black tuxedo with tails over a nude chiffon tank

From the gate, we were all about the fresh modern beauty of this collection. Tromping down the catwalk in white flowing silk (practically ubiquitous on the runways these past few days) with sweaty spritzed faces, eyes slashed with neon-pink paint (painted eyes is also a big trend), the girls breezed by. Silks were featherweight, and although tailoring was precise, looks were fluid, and never felt constrictive or tricky.
