Peter Som has long been celebrated for his California-cool design aesthetic—a result of his San Francisco upbringing—with a long list of celebrity admirers to show for it. His latest collection, however, offers the luxury of St. Barths at an affordable price point. Today his much-anticipated collection for Kohl's hits shelves across the country. 

Full of luxury and serenity, with chic cottages lining the harbor and colorful designer boutiques, the island has a French charm that floats throughout the city."

The fourth designer in the retailer's limited-edition DesigNation series, Som offers a versatile selection of resortwear ranging from $38 to $88. His breezy pieces boast bold though slightly subdued coral and periwinkle hues, upbeat graphics, and many trendy two-toned moments in black and white. While many styles are unmistakably vacation attire—i.e. postcard-print maxi dresses ($78) and gaucho pants ($54)—the New York-based designer also covers garments ranging from sporty to fancy, many of which transition easily from day to night.
