The time has come my Fab friends. After combing through every Spring '09 collection, I am in love with clothes (and accessories) all over again. There was chatter about the economy and whether or not designers' collections were going to respond. Some did, some didn't. What did happen was a good balance of safer, but still gorgeous, wearable clothes, tempered by fantasy. We still want to buy clothes, but we must always dream . . . Perhaps one of the few designers who clothed both of these ideas was Dries van Noten. There were unexpected details, but calm cuts and overall mellow mood. That, is what we need right now.
