Designer Krystal Hoffacker takes a style tip from 90s grunge with Dress Reform's Fall 2011 collection, presented at a fitting underground location, Home Sweet Home, in New York City's Lower East Side on February 25.
Comprised of pleated pants, leggings and maxi dresses in sustainable fabrics, such as organic cotton, hemp and silk linens, and bamboo, her third collection follows a muted color palette with a subtle infusion of orange and army green. Take a look:
Putting the frumpy styling aside -- and the fact that I want to brush the model's hair out of her face -- Hoffacker's talent for tailoring garments shines through with in an army green blazer, paired with a white bamboo/viscose fleece shorts that have potential.
Overall, the collection offers a handful of wearable pieces -- including an organic cotton below-the-knee pencil skirt, an orange fitted button down, and a canvas mini skirt -- and fewer wardrobe staples than Hoffacker's spot-on Spring 2011 Collection.
