Geren Ford Spring 2009: Colorful Boho Chic Ease

Geren Ford’s Spring 2009 collection gave off an 80s vibe with its colorful palette and big hair, but the collection also had a modern edge. The show was held at the Bowery Hotel, with models standing on square blocks, allowing the guests to view each look closely and in its entirety, rather than squirming in their seats in a runway presentation from third row or beyond.

Pops of yellow, fuschia, teal and orange paired with black, grey or white in loose silhouettes create a confident, boho chic ease. Tanks, pleated skirts, open back Ts, ruffle neck tops, paperbag shorts and seamed capris signified a cohesive collection in lightweight silks. The carefree dresses, whether they were pleated, open back, halter or tank style, would look good on any body type. Colorful solid and print bangles, wicker clutches and grey loosely fit ankle socks worn with patent leather sandals accessorized the looks. The accessory must-have has to be the long silky dog print scarves in an array of colors – yellow, teal, grey or royal blue. The models showed the versatility of the scarves, wearing it around their neck, draped, double wrapped, lowly knotted or tied, or worn as a hairband. Guests were very excited to receive one of these scarves in their gift bags, and couldn’t wait to sport it!
