Carnivale of Couture: Favorite Spring 2007 Fashion Trends

September 22nd, 2006

Looks like we’re all still recovering from Fashion Week–I only received one response to my Carnivale question:

What’s your favorite trend from the Spring 2007 runway?

Pleats at Costello TagliapietraAli from Papierblog responded with a thoughtful post full of eye candy about Pleating, which "can give just the right amount of swing to a skirt, flair to a silhoutte, or definition to a bodice."  Gorgeous examples of pleating were shown from the runways of Michon Schur, Dragana Ognjenovic, Jason Wu, and Costello Tagliapietra (pictured, right, courtesy of Papierblog).

Derek Lam Dress with Pocket
As for us, our fave Fashion Week trend is Dresses with Pockets.  We’re crushing on the Dresses with Pockets for their inherent utility (Why tote around a purse when you don’t have to?) and the beautiful constructions we’ve been seeing this season.  Pictured at left is our favorite Dress with Pockets from the Spring 2007 shows, designed by Derek Lam
(courtesy of New York Magazine).

    Placing your hands in the pockets of a dress make for such a chill effect while walking down the street (or runway)… its saying, “I”m so mellow and yet so together.” I love it!

    Likewise, the pleating seen in the Spring 07 shows really made me do a double take. No longer is pleating confined to school uniforms and potential fashion mishaps. It’s really come into its own, with subtly soft draping and more elegant silhouettes. Thanks for sharing, Ali!

    Yes, I like the pockets thing. I can stand there looking calm and poised, and stop wondering what do to with my hands. (I always feel I look like a goober with my hands clasped in front of me, or else sort of fish-wifey if I plop them on my hips)

    Weird thing is, it looks most natural if you leave your hands straight at your sides…..but it feels probably the most unnatural!
