Early emerging trend for Fall '07: tank dresses, or even better - tank backs on longsleeve silk dresses, as seen at Morphine Generation's street-gorgeous show last night, and Ruffian's sexy secretary show this morning. Ruffian designers Brian Wolk and Claude Morais even did an innovative twist where they made a red silk party dress with a tank front. Expect the undershirt influence to continue throughout the week, especially with younger designers looking to sport style for new ideas. Today's Reyes show is a prime example - besides using tank shapes on his dresses, designer Jose Ramon Reyes (incidentally one of the cutest boys in fashion) is exploring tanks rather literally - his big inspiration for the line is scuba diving.
It Model Celia Mendez models the Morphine Generation tank dress, so hot and haute that Flaunt's fashion director Marcus Steptoe looked at it and whispered "Stella" - like McCartney - as it hit the runway.
