RM by Roland Mouret Fall 2007 RTW

It's so nice to see Roland Mouret back in business! He's emphasizing daywear, always a nice plan for most of us.

Here's a clever, wearable dress.

Interestingly shaped coat.

A unique skirt shape, but another ubiquitous "hoodie" although with shaping seams.

Looks like a Lycra blend for sure.

A cute little sporty jacket with stand-away patch pockets.

A real handkerchief skirt.

The top-to-bottom zipper shaping is clever, but I'm not sure it adds so much.

Christian Lacroix Couture Fall 2007

Beautiful, beautiful fabric in the perfect design. Great hat, too!

Theda Bara lives! Isn't it intriguing, though?

Wonderful Spanish-influenced jacket.

Beautifully draped skirt on a very classic style dress.

Very cute cropped velvet jacket.

Printed coat and fur.

Almost a smocked effect at the shoulders. This is entirely lovely.

Chanel Couture Fall 2007

A bit futuristic, but nice. All emphasis and adornment is rooted at the side seams in this collection.

A pretty, clean-looking suit.

Another very classic look, again seemingly borrowed from the 1960's.

A very wearable tunic/dress. And what an easily achieved trim, but what emphasis it gives.

I rather like the combination of a quilted skirt with a tweed jacket. Cute skirt edging detail, too.

Great color in a ladylike style. Classic.

It doesn't look particularly comfortable, but it's certainly striking, and a very unique idea. Close-up below.

I think it's the soft, quiet color combination that is most appealing here.

Interesting jacket with the evening dress.

Trompe l'oeil in a good way.

Fantastic fabric!

Still seeing a bit of the dropped waistline this season.
