Summary: Behnaz Sarafpour once again produced a standout
collection that was unique and inspiring. Season after season, she continues to
step it up with new shapes, interesting fabrics and complex detailing. Surely
Sarafpour’s imagination was hard at work when creating her Spring ’08 looks,
but lucky for us, we’ll barely have to think twice when getting dressed in her
clothes. I love a collection that easily transitions from runway to reality,
and this was no exception.
Color Palette: Tan, brown, black, marigold, white,
turquoise, pearl, coral, ochre, ecru, green, clay, chalk.
Textures & Details: Multi-dimensional textures like
organic waffle, silk, cashmere, cotton, organic faille, rattan weave, crepe,
seersucker, cloque, mattelasse, jacquard, waxed linen and washed taffeta.
Beautiful detailing such as jungle prints, embroidery of
wood, turquoise, pearl and coral, subtle ombre, pleating, petal collars, kaleidoscope
prints, gingham and a gorgeous malachite collar.
Key Looks: Often I think that ombre appears too heavy, but
Sarafpour’s was right on – it was subtle and delicate. I loved both her ombre
strapless dresses, as well as those with boat necks/tank tops. Other favorites
included the wood grain pleated dress and anything with the leaf print.
