Key Takeaways:  Menswear-inspired and unstructured suits for women.  United Bamboo moved away from the cropped jackets, going towards a longer, waist to 5/8 length look.  Vests and toggle coats featured prominently for men.

Color Palette:  Neutrals: Black, Grey, Cream, and Brown, with touches of royal blue, gold, and orange.

Silhouettes:  Garments that end at mid-thigh, A-line dresses, 3/4 sleeves, high waisted pants, waist length and 5/8 length jackets, double breasted coats, voluminous tops over slim bottoms, and slim tops over voluminous bottoms.  As in the Spring 2006 collections, controlled volume played a big role here, especially with the bubble skirts with gathered fabric at the bottom.

Accessories Report:  (Lace up) Boots, skinny belts, nerd glasses, tie waist belts on men.

What’s Wearable: Layering dresses over long sleeved tops.  Hoodies as dresses were especially cute.  For men, toggle coats, vests, cardigans (left over from Spring 06), motocross-inspired peacoats, and the everpresent trenchcoat were key.

What’s Not Wearable:
The tie waist belts on men, and on women, the giant hair–a cross between bedhead and a beehive.
