Fall Back, Spring Forward: Part 2

As promised, I will be updating this feature with quotes from designers and/or retailers with their thoughts on the upcoming season. Stay tuned.

Yeohlee Teng: “Spring 2006 was inspired by the linear construction of the Modern French architect Mallet-Stevens, and the dynamic sweep of suspension bridges. The collection is built with a contrast of structured and soft fabrics in cotton, linen, silk and wool. Colors are earthy and hot.”

Lela Rose: “The Spring 2006 collection is a nod to traditional American sportswear with strong colors and clean, classic silhouettes—refined yet playful” —Lela Rose

Douglas Hannant: “This season is all about American Style – timeless, free, and easy — and light sun-drenched whites. This season the dress is the star”. —Douglas Hannant

Zang Toi: “Our spring 2006 at the House of Toi is all about Africa, the land of great beauties”.

Adrienne Landau: “Spanish Gypsy is a big theme, still bohemian but less ethnic and more couture sophisticated. Fabrics being used are tulle, lace, chiffon, duppioni.

The other theme is French Garden, lots of florals, pale pinks, French blue, and coral. Mixing textures like macramé and suede, lace insets, tulle, chiffon. The collection will feature evening stoles, cropped jackets, oblongs, shawls, peasant blouses.”
