Andy & Debb was another collection that played heavily on a theme – this time circles and round shapes. The tailored, 50’s silhouettes were often softened with bubble skirts, rounded lapels and hems on jackets and the collection’s signature circle-cut collars – the layers of which fluttered as the models walked the runway. Linen and silk created a nice textural variety, but the line would have benefited from more variety of color.
Too much neutral on the runways this spring! While neutrals allow for maximum versatility for today’s more scrupulous high-fashion consumer, shouldn’t the shopper be given something exciting they can’t help but splurge on? A showpiece in their current wardrobe as opposed to an accent?
The classy separates at Andy & Debb were just what they should be, but like the color variety, lacked excitement.
