Fashion Week Notebook | United Bamboo

September 11th, 2005

Key Takeaways: Grown up innocence, for lack of a better term. United Bamboo juxtaposed little girl type detailing: scalloped detailing at the waist, rounded Peter Pan collars, button-ups, and patch-type pockets with hardware: sinuous body hugging zippers, buckles, and snaps.

Color Palette: Black, grey, and white, with yellows and blues. Touches of purple, orange. Great color combination: yellow + orange.

Silhouettes: Unexaggerated volume, empire waistlines, high-waisted pants, double-breasted jackets, trapeze dresses.

Accessories Report: Looks like topsiders are back.

What’s Wearable: High-waisted pants (great for the long waisted/people with short legs), empire waistlines (almost universally flattering), and double-breasted jacket styles (for the tall). Peter Pan collars are a maybe, depending on how you wear them. The rounded collar, for example, is Adorable on a tailored princess line coat.

What’s Not Wearable: Scalloped detailing at the waist, which looked excessively cartoonish. Looking like you walked out of a Disney movie is generally not a positive fashion statement. The body-hugging zipper detailing was also a look that should be seen Only on the Runway.

We Love this Color Combination: Yellow + Orange.
