Alldressedup Fall/Winter 2008-09

If there is a suitable record for me to pick and play to match Alldressedup’s upcoming fall/winter 2008 collection, then it will be “Modern Minds and Pastimes” by Boston-based modern rock band, The Click Five.

Blending old shapes and silhouettes with modern incandescent palette, Alldressedup fall/winter 2008 truly lived to the Click Five’s album title – modern minds mixed with the past.

Touted as an “imaginative and inventive” collection, the line’s inspiration was drawn from eastern nautical influences dated back to the days of yore and thrilling tones of the deep sea. Since imaginative is the name of the game, expect to an array of unusual materials such as washed silk, organdy, ribbed jersey, cashmere silk blend knit and the luxurious crepe de chine in silk.

Soft and relaxed, the collection boasts liquid shapes and silhouettes that do not attached to the body, thus promoting comfort and a sense of ultimate femininity. Be it a long tank dress in runny jersey over layered with matching long-sleeved top or flowing celadon short-sleeved top with frilled puffed petrol blue shoulders, no exact time or moment needed for you to indulge in this alluring collection.

Enhancing the ready-to-wear collection’s beauty are interes
ting detailing elements such as the knotted or looped nautical cords that lends an authentic cruise vibe to the collection in the form of drawstring detail on collars, hemlines and pouch; cool translucent zippers with contrasting stitching, as well as the unique yet flexible aluminum wiring on sleeves and necklines.

Of course, completing your Alldressedup girl’s look is the delectable lineup of accessories and bags.

Aquatic creatures such as jellyfish and corals, as well as nautical knots are immortalized in the forms of elasticized cords and latex-cast chains, while necklaces and charms are made from grosgrain ribbons and leather shoestrings, either hand-braided or knotted.

And never leave your home without the irresistible bags too. If you are into texture and design innovation, then look no further for its clutch bag collection. What’s so special about Alldressedup’s clutch bag collection is they are made from textured Koi (or Japanese carp) fish skin and adorned with innovative latex-cast buckles and rivets. Fashionably awesome!

The Alldressedup fall/winter 2008 collection will be available soon at Alldressedup stores and 80 selected fashion retailers worldwide.
