FASHIONWEEK Fall 2007: Gorgeous Grecian Draping from Doo.Ri. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG

Summary: Long a fash insider fave, Doo.Ri packed out the large Promenade venue at New York Fashionweek - with editors, friends, hangers-on, and front row A-listers. From the first black-hued draped trench, through the steely greys - some sexed up with luscious fox and guipure lace detailing - through to the deep burgundy and muted military blue tops, skirts, and dresses, it was a vision of twists, gathers, pleats and anything else gorgous that can possibly be done to jersey. The former Geoffrey Beene protoge makes thoughtful, beautiful clothes that showcase the beauty of fabric, without shouting "fashion!"...or worse: heading down the road to "wearable art". These are flattering & fabulous clothes that bring out the best in the female form, and leave a sexy impression from behind: interesting swags of fabric & criss-cross details which reveal alluring stretches of skin.
Color Palette: black; slate gray; muted teal; deep burgundy, bright yellow
Details & Textures: matte jersey galore; shimmery beaded black "harnesses"; fur; lace; exotic goddess'y draping; long black leather gloves
Key Looks: grey draped dress with yellow lace "harness", grey chiffon dress with fox vest; pale grey dress with fox "sleeves" and heavy black lace detailing at the hem; floorlength burgundy goddess gown; military blue sleeveless draped minidress with shimmery black "harness"

I just saw the style.com video for this collection. Wonderful. She uses jersey so well, and I love the draping in the dresses. Sometimes I don't like it when things are too "young", but she's got a nice little balance there.
