Gen Art San Francisco Fresh Faces in Fashion | Paala

October 18th, 2005

Background on Paala: Former graphic designer Janna Stark created Paala, inspired by the idea that the same dresses can function for day as well as night.

Key Takeaways: While feminine, the collection was not overtly sexy. Stark focused on girly details such as poufed and ruffled sleeves, flowy skirts made of printed chiffon and tie-neck tops.

Color Palette: Yellows, browns, greens, pinks and purples, many in used ombre patterns.
 
Silhouettes: Ruffled dresses made of chiffon with high-neck collars or styled off-the-shoulder; tie-neck silk tops with gaucho trousers. Many of the dresses had rows of button detail on the side and back.

Accessories Report: Wild hair extensions.

What’s Wearable: An off-the-shoulder dress made of sheer silk with a debossed floral print in crushed velvet. Who wouldn’t feel pretty, oh so pretty?
