The pumping sounds of indie group Tennis mixed with DJ Cassidy‘s beats riffed off Minkoff’s reinterpretation of Slim Aarons photos. The models were cooler, more modern versions of the 1960s jet-setters and socials that he snapped as they lounged by the pool.

Boot-cut jeans with floral bottoms, faded motorcycle vests, sunset-print bomber jackets, and a grandma-chic tweed shorts suit. The trendy track pant even got a bit of a refresher–colorful flowered stripes went down the front of the leg instead of the side. Midway through the show was a series of bandanna-inspired looks, which were the highlight of the collection. Case in point? White jeans with red embroidery paired with a matching “Leno” jacket and topped off with a ’70s-style headpiece. Minkoff also took a risk with an open-back, utility-style jumpsuit and a pair of snakeskin overalls, but managed to pull them both off as only a true Minkette can.
