For Spring 2007 you will see the softer side. Pale shades are slightly antiqued, medium tones take on a weathered look and brights pop with a candy-coated finishes. Darks are spicy and deeply saturated, offering the perfect transition from summer-into-fall. Ruffles and gathered openings add a delicate touch to soft silhouettes. There are several design details to look out for such as belt band detailing, multiple outside pockets, tie closures, eyelet lace, metal eyelets, structured totes with contrasting binding and satchels taking many different shapes. Also mixing textures, side drawstrings, leather-covered frames and pebblegrain surfaces will all be popular.
