This eco-friendly Spring 09 collection had quite a few pieces we were fond of, most of all, that which was baggy or high waisted. Sure, the clothing was basic and the color palate played into the stereotypes of the eco-friendly aesthetic (i.e. khaki, burgundy, olive) but that really didn't matter in the end. It's wrong to expect everything to be complex in form and brilliant in color--even if it is easier to say those things are "cool". We're guessing that any fashion-forward buyer would know which of these pieces to order, and the collection would seem really fresh on the boutique floor. After all, a Los Angeles woman who wears a 1970's inspired pantsuit, a long striped cardigan, or a belted mini skirt and can call it all eco-friendly is very stylish indeed. If only we saw more of this during Los Angeles Fashion Week...
