Manhattan-based newcomer Lauren Moffatt has a small yet strong collection of fall casual wear for Fall 2005. She has a great flair for combining flowy, soft fabrics like silk with denser, durable textures like corduroy, and her color palette suits any skin tone with neutral beiges, creams and browns; accented by cool turquoise, deep cranberry and warm yellows. Her clothing has a retro style to it with banded elastic waistlines and shirt sleeves on some tops, and flared bottoms for clam-digger style pants. Many of her pieces are accented with tiny embellishments of metal, including my favorite top – the Silk/Metal Embroidered Blouse in Mocha.
