Key Takeaways: Finally…Spring! With beautiful prints (Omiru hearts Marimekko), Oscar de la Renta’s collection truly embodies the season its being designed for. As with so many other collections, volume was a key trend.  In keeping with the bubble silhouette of the season, Oscar directed the volume to move down south to  skirts and bottoms of dresses.

Color Palette: White, red, blue (bright and light), yellow, fuchsia, and brown.

Silhouettes: Most of the skirts were voluminous, a throwback to the heyday of 1950s couture. Skirt volume alternated between over-the-top and kept at a minimum, as Oscar showed both fitted styles and bubble silhouettes. Silhouettes of note included cap-sleeve dresses, bubble skirts, trapeze jackets, an 80’s inspired prom-style sweetheart dress with a poof skirt, a bandeau bikini, a Jackie-O-style boatneck dress, the classic shift dress, and a slightly oversized unstructured skirt suit set.

Accessories Report: Square black glasses, white-rimmed glasses, a briefcase-style satchel handbag, many clear bags, and of course, the classic black patent leather belt at the waist.

What’s Wearable: Most of the dresses are wearable, especially the ones will clean details. An evening gown that will translate wonderfully for a formal event is the midnight blue silk sleeveless long dress with a simple scoop neck.  Bravo Oscar!

What’s Not Wearable: The intense bubble skirts are too dramatic for a non-celebrity, and we fear that they might make a gal look like she takes herself too seriously.

    [...] 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.
