Key Takeaways:
  Doo Ri Chung is all grown up.  Moving beyond her signature jersey, she incorporated silk, lace, and tulle into a decidedly elegant spring showing.  Doo Ri’s Spring 2008 collection showcased her talent for tailoring both drapey dresses and clean, crisp coats.  Key trends included: mini skirts and dresses, controlled volume, high-waisted pants, and an emphasis on the waistline.

Color Palette:  Creams and tans, accented by stark black and white.

Silhouettes:  Loose and drapey, and ruled by controlled volume.  Skirts, often featuring a bubble hem, dominated the collection–both mini and knee-length.  Pants and shorts were high waisted and cut with a generous leg.  Sleeves were equally voluminous, with kimono and pouf styles.  Of note was Doo Ri’s looser emphasis on the waist than other designers for Spring 2008.

Accessories Report: 
Minimal jewelry adorned the models.

What’s Wearable:  Favorites include (1) a floor-length silk charmeuse gown with elegant, almost Narciso-circa-2003-like seaming on the torso, (2) a hip-length belted trenchcoat, and (3) high waisted pants–great for long-waisted women everywhere.

What’s Not Wearable:  Watch the "power" shoulderline on some of the jackets–there’s enough room there for a shoulder pad party.

    Love it! These 3 looks seem fashionable without being costumes.

    Totally–and I love how Doo Ri expanded beyond her signature jersey this season.
