The Gist: A charming collection of comfortably luxe pieces with a more downtown feel than in seasons’ past. Featuring: The collection keeps to mostly muted hues, with neutrals, a blue-green watercolor print, and pale peaches and pinks dominating. Som’s tailoring and eye for American sportswear is keen, and pieces like a sequin tank, billowy shirt-dresses, lurex knits with sequin collars, cuffed shorts, and flowing trousers all look great. The “It” Factor For Denver:

The ability to mix together many of the pieces in Som’s spring show, and even into your existing wardrobe, is what will make this collection work for so many women. The triple-buckle belt is another fine addition to this show. Look For It Next Spring At: Aline, 5375 Landmark Place, Greenwood Village, 303-773-8200. Visit our Fashion Week blog for more designers and Denver “it” factors.
