We're in a whirlwind of peripheral fashion weeks having just finished Los Angeles and Mexico, and started up on Lakme, Toronto, and Seoul--we think (it's too many to keep track of). This morning, upon closer inspection, the Joeffer Caoc Spring 09 show that was part of L'Oreal Toronto Fashion Week really stood out to us. A basic color palette let the designer play with different textures, in fact, it may have been influenced by Proenza Schouler (texture) or Calvin Klein (basic color) for this reason. These days, women are wearing their dress trousers extra large and their cocktail dresses short and luxe and Joeffer Caoc gave us those things. There were also some great monochromatic dresses with chiffon layers or silk components that we think ladies will be looking for come holiday party time.
