Fluid, loose and unstructured are three words that come to mind when looking at Marc Bouwer’s fall 2007 collection.

So many collections in recent seasons have been focusing on structure, architecture and design. Think old school Balenciaga.

But Marc is keeping his women happy in flowing gowns in a muted palette of black, ink, slate, creme and aubergine. Waist lines were everywhere from empire to drop waist, giving clients a welcome choice for fat days or moms to be. Marc’s draping was impecable, Halston would be proud, and the faux fur coats and shrugs will come in handy for awards show chilliness from weather or celebrities.

One must also applaud Marc for being the first established designer to shed wool, leather and fur from his collections.
