FASHIONWEEK Fall 2007: Muted, Draped Elegance from Atil Kotuglu. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG


Summary: When cobalt blue is in the house, you know the 80s are lurking somewhere nearby. However, following a few Mugler moments which opened the show - aforementioned cobalt blue leather motorcycle jacket with black pencil skirt; cobalt leather pencil skirt with black turtle neck - the mood got progressively less tough & more lushly elegant. A particularly luxurious group of dusty burgundy silk velvet dresses were a standout, especially a mini with full sleeves and draping in the back that created a sexy stir from behind by dipping to the lower back.  Also yummy: an asymmetrical multi-hued metallic fabric short dress, and his "draped sleeve" - an oversized pouf sleeve with inverted box pleat which livened up both a little black dress and a metallic silver/gold waffle weave coat. And should you have the bod for it, the sexxxy draped silver jersey dresses - especially with a one-shoulder close-to-the-body bodice - were Studio 54 ready-to-go.

Color Palette: Cobalt blue; metallic chocolate; black; black & gray paisley; silver brocade; gold & cream brocade with touches of silver; pewter'y silver jersey knit; rich deep mauve velvet
