Key Takeaways: Key trends from Fall 2006 continued to influence Ashleigh Verrier, a recent graduate of Parsons and a former apprentice at Proenza Schouler.  The idea of controlled volume permeated her collection, which featured fabric manipulations from ruffles to ruching.  Verrier also continued to work with higher waistlines and cropped jackets and capelets, all hallmarks of the Fall 2006 season.

Color Palette: Neutrals (black and white) were joined by gorgeously wearable shades of mustard, orange, dusky rose, sky blue, and ocean blue.

 Silhouettes: Form fitting silhouettes characterized Verrier’s collection: bustiers, pencil skirts, tailored tops, skinny shorts, and fitted dresses.  A sprinkle of A-line styles rounded out Verrier’s collection.  Of note are the sailor shorts (nautical’s still big), thick straps on tops and dresses, the extra-long placket, wide lapels, capelets, bows, and tops with peplums.

Accessories Report: Strappy platform sandals and espadrilles adorned the models’ feet.  Necklaces were either shown thoughtfully layered or with large dangling gems.

What’s Wearable: We loved a flapperesque navy and white beaded dress (pictured), a flutter sleeve belted striped dress, and a half-sleeve cream coat with oversized collar and pockets.

What’s Not Wearable: Steer clear of the horizontal striped skirt with hidden pleats, which we found unflattering even on the model.  We’d also avoid the fabric-blocked top with wide straps and a long peplum, which accentuates thick arms and thick middles.

    [...] Spring 2007 is all about pieces–and about continuing, not departing from, the big trend from Fall 2006: volume.  Bubble silhouettes, trapeze shapes, and puff sleeves all graced the runway.  Neutral colors continue their run as well as designers combine shades of black, white, and grey with accent colors from royal blue to fire engine red.  SILHOUETTESControlled VolumeAshleigh Verrier, Carolina Herrera, Marc Jacobs, Y & Kei, Proenza SchoulerHigh Waisted StylesDerek Lam, Cynthia Steffe, Zac PosenDrop Waist StylesMarc by Marc Jacobs, Doo Ri, Ports 1961Babydoll ShapesJay McCarroll, Derek Lam, Peter Som, Cynthia Steffe, Ports 1961, Atil KutogluBubble SilhouettesMarc Jacobs, Ports 1961, Sass & Bide, Tuleh,  Oscar de la Renta, AraksTrapeze ShapesReem Acra, BCBG, Peter Som, Ports 1961Tulip SilhouettesPeter Som, Ports 1961, Atil Kutoglu, Y & KeiDouble Breasted StylesY & Kei, Proenza Schouler, Zac Posen, Marc by Marc JacobsDETAILINGRufflesPorts 1961, Betsey Johnson, Zac Posen, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Y & KeiCuffed StylesZac Posen, Manuel, Trovata, Kai Kühne, Jay McCarroll, Peter SomTops with PeplumsAshleigh Verrier, Tocca, Carolina HerreraTuxedo DetailingDoo Ri, Oscar de la Renta, Marc by Marc JacobsWide StrapsAshleigh Verrier, Reem Acra, Sass & Bide, Proenza Schouler, Peter Som, Narciso RodriguezDresses with PocketsSass & Bide, Derek LamPuff SleevesReem Acra, Tuleh, Y & Kei, Peter Som, Doo Ri, Marc by Marc JacobsNautical Ashleigh Verrier, Trovata, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Cynthia SteffeEyeletCarolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, Jenni KayneOversized CollarsCarolina Herrera, Jenni Kayne Grecian DrapingCarolina Herrera, Doo Ri,  Zac PosenBlack and White ColorsAraks, Carolina Herrera, TulehAccent Color: RedCostello Tagliapietra, Reem Acra, Atil Kutoglu, Zac PosenFlutter SleevesBCBG, Narciso Rodriguez, Atil Kutoglu, Jenni Kayne, Zac PosenKimono SleevesBaby Phat, Proenza Schouler, Derek Lam, Ports 1961Off the Shoulder SleevesCarolina Herrera, Calvin Klein, Ports 1961, Proenza Schouler, Y & KeiDotsMarc by Marc Jacobs, Zac Posen, Jay McCarrollWild GraphicsDiane von Furstenberg, Alexandre Herchcovitch, Tocca, Oscar de la Renta, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Jay McCarrollKnits & CrochetDerek Lam, Ports 1961, Marc by Marc JacobsStripesJohn Bartlett, Ashleigh Verrier, Peter Som, Atil Kutoglu, Zac Posen, Jay McCarrollChevron StripesJay McCarroll, J.
