Under the blazing sun, the desert can seem like a lonely, arid wasteland. But it's also a pretty captivating place--a vast expanse bathed in stillness and mystery. There's a reason those drag queens in Priscilla felt so saucy and alive as they trekked through the outback. Who knows what secrets lie just beyond the dunes? Once a source of fascination for writers like Antoine de Saint-Exupery and artists like Georgia O'Keeffe and Donald Judd, the desert has now crept onto the runway, showing up in sandy pinks and tans from Bottega Veneta, Zegna, and Kenneth Cole, and in weathered whites and creams from John Varvatos. These looks are simple, sleek, tailored, and striking--and as hot as the scorched landscape that inspired them.
