If—for reasons surely unrelated to a certain HBO series—you’re suddenly looking to book an Italian vacation, ALC has your wardrobe settled. Inspired by Positano, pre-fall features crochet dresses and oversized raffia bags as well as a sunny palette and a print inspired by the stone stairs in Italy. Though ALC launched swimwear in the spring, this season it’s a key part of the collection, with clean, minimalist silhouettes in punchy prints and solids.

Designer Andrea Lieberman stresses that she’s trying to “build out this wardrobe for our customer and our woman.” She describes the collection as “real clothes. Unfussy, if you will.” Much of it is undeniably vacation-focused: the plummy brown crochet dress with a polo collar and v-neck functions best as a cover-up. The broderie anglaise sets—one a pair of white shorts and a crop top, the other a black, abbreviated cami and a sarong—cry out for an aperol spritz as an accessory. As a result the few pieces of clothing that feel less celebratory are a little dissonant in the lookbook. A sharply tailored white cropped jacket and similarly structured shorts are cute, but stick out among the butter yellow maillots and strapless sundresses.
