Keeping with the somber thematic tone seen over the past two days in New York, Doo.Ri’s Fall presentation was a predictable, yet successful, collection. The designer has made a habit of showing monochromatic collections but she moved away from the icy blue tones of Spring, towards a palette that ranged from ecru to black, covering most neutrals in between.
The collection was relatively trouser-heavy but we saw proof that the longer length of skirt we expect to be a major trend for this season, will be. Silhouettes and themes from the designer’s pre-fall collection were developed with a keen editing eye and a surprising flourish of knit detail. The designer managed to achieve the difficult task of ensuring retail sales whilst appeasing the neo-maniacal fashion world.
Inspired by the work of artist Beverly Semmes, whose elongated, fluid lines were clear in both the minimalist silhouettes of the clothing and the smooth tresses and heavy cut bangs shown on the models, the designer welcomed autumnal basics with a modern twist.
