Fall 2007 Copenhagen Fashion Week Notebook: Elise Gug

Elise Gug Fall 2007 Collection

By Priyanka Ghosh and Julie Gulfer

Key Takeaways:  Clean lines and soft fabrics made for a very wearable collection.  Elise Gug’s conservative yet chic collection is reminiscent of the innocent elegance of young Audrey Hepburn (down to her signature up do).  The monochromatic collection featured key trends of cashmere knits, quilted top coats, tapered trousers, and pencil skirts in lightweight silk taffeta. 

Color Palette: Black and chocolate, along with earth tones—brown, tan, beige, sandy taupe and some burnt orange—dominated the runway.  Soft heather grey also made an appearance. 

Silhouettes:  Sleek, tailored pieces such as slim cut, straight legged trousers and high-waisted pleated skirts contrasted with breezy lightweight dresses and loose fitting A-line winter coats.  We also took note of the collection of black evening gowns with voluminous skirts and cinched waists accented by oversized sash-tie bows.

Accessories Report: 
Mufflers and gloves with dark fur trim and neutral colored pashminas acknowledged the cold autumn temperatures of Scandinavia.   We also spotted chunky-heeled platform boots and skinny belts in worn black and brown leather. 

What’s Wearable:  We loved Elise Gug’s collection of loosely belted jersey dresses with natural waistlines. Gug’s dresses hug the right curves without clinging to the wrong ones.   The loose three-quarter length sleeves hide large arms, while the U collar flatters the neckline.

What’s Not Wearable: 
While the plunging, v-shaped backs on the evening gowns looked exquisite on the models, this revealing cut requires women to have uber-toned backs with blemish free skin and flawless posture.

    I love this. Very chic and elegant. Though I’d probably take the safer route and wear slacks/skirt rather than the “knickers” shown here.
    And… I’d just love the chance to wear a “black evening gown with a voluminous skirt and cinched waist accented by oversized sash-tie bow.”
