Key Takeaways: A visit to Tocca’s showroom in Chelsea feels almost like a tropical vacation with the very feminine and cotton-heavy collection inspired by the colorful island hues of the Cyclades, a part of the lovely Greek Islands.  Bold graphic prints dominated Tocca’s Spring/Summer collection, along with detailing ranging from eyelet to ruching to embroidery.  The dress-dominated collection was  made for comfort and embodied a definite casual chic.

Color Palette:  Tocca’s line of prints spans the rainbow of colors with a heavy emphasis on brights. 

Silhouettes: Dresses and skirts are constructed in classic shapes: fitted blouses with peplums, empire-waisted dresses, wrap dresses, shirt dresses, and bandeau-top dresses. 

Accessories Report:  We’re crushing on an oversized canvas satchel with a coconut disc bead handle, brass hardware and bamboo support structure.  We absolutely adored the bold geometric prints on the satchels, lending them a casually trendy air.
 
What’s Wearable:  Carry around the canvas satchels that are already popular in Tocca’s flagship store in Tokyo, and your groceries will never have felt so fashionable!  The Mona Dress ($150) had a gorgeous striped print with contrast fabric on the bottom of the dress and a flattering empire waist.  We also checked out the Michelle Dress ($120), whose geometric patchwork of navy and white–with a lime green neckline–embodied a mod 60s feel.

What’s Not Wearable:   The Tressa skirt, a short navy and white frilly-cut skirt tragically reminded us of Paris Hilton during the summer.  While we didn’t appreciate the frilly skirt silhouette (didn’t we let this one go in 2004?), the print was still lovely.

    [...] 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.
