Color Palette: Lots and lots of color here: black, purple, white, blue, red, yellow, purple, fuchsia, bright pink, and GOLD. Rarely was an garment monochromatic; most of the colors above were used together.
Silhouettes: Heatherette strayed from the volume trend and with cuts that read tighter and sexier. Dresses had uneven bottoms, men’s shorts were tattered, and one dress featured a bubble skirt. We also spotted more casual jersey shorts and polo tops, as well as some layering of strapless dresses over grungy t-shirts.
Accessories Report:For men: chunky gold necklaces, gold cross necklaces, and straw hats. For women: chunky gold necklaces, straw hats, travel suitcases, cloth messenger bags, and bug-eyed sunglasses.
What’s Wearable: The most "normal" outfits on Heatherette’s eclectic runway were the ones Paris and Nicky Hilton sported midway: cropped jersey shorts with polo tops and crew neck sweaters.
What’s Not Wearable: Made for show, not for the streets, almost everything in the Spring collection is unwearable, especially the bathing suits with fake flowers plastered all over them.
