Spring 2008 Runway Review Part 2- New Trends

Last season, the combination of cobalt blues, rich yellows, and reds paired with gray and black created just the right amount of fun for the fall pieces. This season, as expected, proved much lighter and more colorful, full of pale, cotton candy-esque chiffons, and more pastel, spring appropriate colors. Yet there were also the brights, brought on by none other than the vivaciously spirited Italian designers Etro and Missoni. Of course, my personal taste draws me more to the wood nymph appropriate wear such as Alberta Ferretti, though I definitely appreciate a desperately needed splash of bright pink or blue to break the monotony. I also found my eye drawn to the collections and that combined unusual or opposing fabrics, such as chiffon and leather, or feathers and snakeskin.
