Spring/Summer Fashion 2009: Loyale

Flirty ruffles, crisp pleating, billowy puffed sleeves, and hemlines hiked up like the whoa dominate Loyale's Spring/Summer 2009 line, which was inspired by trippy-hippy expressionist and counterculture artist Wallace Berman.

Berman's influence resonates through the bohemian yet thoroughly modern collection. (And the ruffled bikini drips with ultrafeminine and slightly inappropriate sex appeal.) In fact, the abstract floral Semina print is named for Berman's unbound, hand-pressed underground magazine, which encouraged the shedding of artistic inhibitions and set the stage for the West Coast surrealism movement. Made in New York and India, Loyale uses 100 percent organic cotton, reclaimed surplus fabric, and low-impact dyes.
