Christian Cota fall ’08 was a mixture of digitally printed fabrics: silk chiffons, tights, and jersey bodysuits. A silk jacquard multi-colored striped dress with gathered hem was stunning while a silk chiffon mock turtleneck shift dress with pom-pom chiffon appliqué detail demanded a second…and third glance. We also adored the digitally printed silk chiffon floor length gown with fitted sheath underneath.
Our infatuation overwhelmed some of the details that weren’t as aesthetically pleasing: some of the appliqué appeared overdone and the jury is still out on the funnel necks and the lurex dresses, which seemed to detract from the collection’s cohesiveness at first glance. Nonetheless, fall ’08 is a mature and welcome collection.
