For me, the the biggest shock from spring Fashion Week was the ubiquity of seafoam. Variations of the ocean-inspired tone washed up in the collections of Dolce & Gabbana, Tibi, Jil Sander and countless others. Though I once associated it with roadside motels and retro cars, the pretty pastel is looking fresh againparticularly when applied to Akris's modern leather messenger bag. The luxury label's crisp convertible would look chic slung over denim and enliven head-to-toe black. It also comes in a warm yellow hue, but to my surprise seafoam won me over.
