Doo.Ri's fall collection really impressed me with its attention to detail and dark yet soft elegance. I love the crystal beaded tights, cobweb-like chain necklaces and beautiful inky illustrations on some of the dresses. The torn leather reminds me of Yohji's fall 2008 collection, and some pieces reference the recent trend towards more elaborate knits (Sandra Backlund!) except they are more toned down and ready-to-wear. It also gives off that same wispy feel we all know and love from Olivier Theyskens' work at Ninna Ricci. The formula of draped jersey paired with touches of more experimental details will probably see Doo.Ri through tough times in the fashion industry. I'm hoping!
