NY Fashion Week Fall ’08. Chris Han is Wearable…All Of the Time

February 7, 2008 • New York Fashion Week Fall '08








Summary: Last fall Chris Han blew me away with her Spring ’08 collection. It was formal, frilly, beautiful constructed and was one of my favorite shows of the season. This time she showed a little more daywear consisting of many layered skirt and pant ensembles which I know to some was a disappointment. However, un-objectively, it was the one line that spoke to my personal dress style the most. I could realistically see myself really wearing almost all of it…all of the time. Who cares, right? Chris Han’s draping was very Doo.Ri’esque which in my mind isn’t a bad thing since Doo.Ri has been steering away from her signature jersey draping. Besides jersey, Han draped a lot of silk charmeuse and I adored her color palette of mostly plums, olives and greys.
