I’ve written here before that I’m smitten with Manish Arora’s spring/summer 2007 collection. I love his unrestrained use of color and texture, how he takes traditional fabrics and creates an exuberant textile landscape.
So I was delighted when I saw that Anthropologie (large photo) is carrying a dress from his Fish Fry line. (If you click on the Fish Fry link, go through the entire summer 2007 collection until you reach the photo of Arora. I simply love the tunic he’s wearing—some of the most calming, beautiful colors . . . .)
Like most of Arora’s clothing, it calls out for a special occasion. A garden party among the flowers? Worn with strong strappy Manolos?
I don’t know that I’d buy it, but I like how this dress sparks my imagination.
