I know lots of you are Betsey Johnson fans, as am I, and she showed the world a more reserved collection for Fall 2007. Still packed with ruffled, lacey party dresses, there was definitely more grown up pieces than usual. This is not a bad thing, just different.
As expected, there was a rainbow of colors, not expected, they were all toned down. Cream, navy, emerald green, and brown came up in smart day pieces while red, black and teal were more evening. A few really cute prints: a graphic blue and yellow pattern, grey and black plaid, a fruit stripe gum print and an adorable black and tan heart print. There were definite 80s influences - strapless puffed short dresses - and 70s influences - colorful knits and wide brim hats.
I could definitely see Chloe Sevigny in the long sleeved cream and black lace belted onesie. On the other end of the spectrum, I could see Charlize Theron in the floor length, flowy silk stargazer ruffled gown.
