The designer, who is also the creative force behind Bill Blass
, put forth a Spring 2009 lineup of youthful, ladylike looks in lightweight tweeds, watercolor-print satin and swirling sequins. The easy, boxy cuts were made romantic with pleating, appliques and waist-cinching belts. The ideal wearer? Says Peter Som
: "Every woman who wants clothes that celebrate her femininity and strength but also allows her to be a dreamer."
