“She’s smart and not concerned with being beautiful, but she is beautiful,” said Michelle Smith of her contemporary customer. While the Milly girl may not be concerned with her looks, she does care about being stylish and, according to Smith, “shops pre-fall for fashion pieces as well as essentials.” In the smart basics category were tapered and cropped trousers (an of-the-moment silhouette) and a soft black leather pencil skirt. As for the fashion, Smith showed a not-your-grandmother’s-tweed jacket trimmed in leather and tricked out with metal tips at the base of the zipper, as well as a flattering sheath dress that mixed two kinds of custom French tweed with a “gumball” lace. Feathered skirts and whimsical owl-print separates were a total hoot.

Michelle Smith is rounding out a long Resort season with a new lineup for Milly inspired by the irresistibly catchy seventies tune “Funky Nassau.” With its polka-dot PVC trenchcoats, neon bungee cord belts, and graphic prints, her collection had an upbeat vibe similar to the song. And stylish moms will be happy to know their girls can dress just like them in scaled-down, coordinating pieces from the Milly Minis line (Smith’s daughter Sophia was happy to skip summer camp for a day and model for the lookbook). Tailored shorts suits and corseted shifts for daytime came in a “wood grain pattern that I wanted to be a non-pattern,” explained the designer. Another highlight was the slouchy, marled sweater paired with a ruffled geometric miniskirt, which struck a nice balance between free and easy funk and fashion.
