Key Takeaways:
  An elegantly wearable collection perfect for the ladies who lunch.  Key trends included: emphasis on the waistline, high-waisted pants, the buttoned-up-to-the-neck blouse, the knee-length skirt, dresses with pockets, and the long blazer.

Color Palette: 
Muted neutrals, accented by matte metallics and the occasional splash of bright color (reds and yellows).

For the ladies who lunch, Peter Som showed a number of lunchworthy outfits.  Sheaths paired with a blazer.  High waisted pants worn with a blouse and a 3/4 length coat.  Pants and shorts were high waisted, and skirts fell at or a touch above the knee.  Falling in line with Spring 2008 trends, Peter Som showed belts at the waistline, dresses with pockets, and high-waisted pants.  Also of note was Som’s horizontal stripes, his long hip-length blazers, and his buttoned-up-to-the-neck blouses.

Accessories Report: 
Dual strands of oversized beaded necklaces and brightly colored belts.

What’s Wearable:  Just about everything, right down to the knee-length skirts (universally flattering).

What’s Not Wearable:  Not applicable for this collection.

    Let’s do lunch! I love these lady-like looks. And didn’t you mention hip-length blazers not long ago? This collection is beautiful.

    Yes, we ran a poll about the Hip Length Blazer. Looks like it’s still in :)

    This is a beautiful collection, and like you said, its completely wearable. I really like the bright colors this fall– they compliment the neutrals nicely. Has anyone heard about the possible deal Lord & Taylor is pursuing with Peter Som? Hopefully sometime down the line they will start carrying an affordable line of his. That would sure make this girl happy!

    Yup, Lord and Taylor invested in Peter Som. I too am hoping for a more affordable line of his clothes!

    Yeah, it would be really cool if Lord & Taylor would work out an arrangement with Peter Som and carry his line. Since they’re investing in him, it may be possible in the future. We’ll see!
