The theme for Pamella DeVos’ collection for Pamella Roland was evident upon seeing the waves on the walls. Devos explained, “my travels to the Galapagos Islands inspired this collection: the natural beauty of the islands influenced every aspect of the design process.” The metaphorical plane took off to paradise and we were greeted by 1970’s flight attendant looks, followed by relaxing dresses, sophisticated swimwear and a finale of classic le smokings and gowns that signaled our return to the city.

For most girls, the highlight of the show was a variety of belted pantsuits and shirtdresses that were well-accessorized and extremely wearable. The elegant ivory silk gown and opera coat that ended the show was lovely on a bronzed model with sun-kissed hair, but many of DeVos’ show-stopping looks lacked relevance off the runway. Key colors for this season included cream, camel, grey, papaya orange and navy.

Though her segue into lightly tropical ombre printed chiffon dresses and swimsuits later in the show was jarring when juxtaposed with the crisp khaki and grey linen of the first half, the collection was as marketable as always, and great for the Hamptons set. There was definitely a clean and sporty look for almost every mood in the Spring ’07 collection.
