(CBS/AP) Allison Williams of HBO's "Girls" and Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld of "True Grit" were in the front row Friday when Peter Som introduced his muted florals on denim - an offshoot of his collaboration with Earnest Sewn- and his midriff-baring cutouts

The midriff-baring cutouts were carved into ladylike sheath dresses that fell below the knee. A pink orchid-print bustier dress was dotted with a bit of more demure lace.

Standard button-down shirts and a lace T-shirt were jazzed up with jeweled collars.

Som is known to play with texture, and he created a colorful patchwork of snakeskin chevrons. The best version was the shift that was mostly a mix of pinks and purples on top, and chartreuse below the dropped waist.
