even though i dont particularly like it, i can see the jacket keeping it's new found place in our wardrobes, stores need the jacket to revive the gloomy market
I actually like that the jacket is becoming more important..
I've had that feeling about the 'revival' (as if it's ever really gone) of the fitted jacket ever since Balenciaga released their fw 07/08 collection
Very tailored, very structured jackets, pantsuits and jumpsuits will probably be the must have new look, a bit more YSL 1970s borrowed from menswear, le smoking, etc., rather than scruffy relaxed "Annie Hall" style. It's already here, but it probably will become the rage like Volume was. Pants will probably take on a lot of "weird" proportions, either very flared (but not the flared from the knees but from the thighs) or a tailored "harem pants" and also 80s pants cut.
I'm actually enjoying this, especially wearing an entire suit, matching pantsuit with vest, and then something crazy and colourful in accessories and big wavy hair!

and dont forget ultra-high-waist & pyjamas and all kind of nostalgic biba catsuits
regarding grey, i'm surpised it is lasting so very very long
it's really becoming our new 'basic' like fashionista-ta said above
agreed with gius on experimental fabrics and need to add Baleciaga's latest fabric developements to the 'inventive' list
taking cue for gius list, feathers could easily develop in a huge theme for sso09
^ Interesting points about feathers ... Olivier has been using them a fair amount at Nina Ricci, Roger Vivier has been using them ... It seems like there's been a resurgence of couture artistry since Chanel bought in, and I read they're training a new generation now. Perhaps feathers are going to become a staple??
I notice Olivier uses them almost as a beading substitute sometimes, and it's so functional because they're so light, it keeps the gown weightless and so much more comfortable ...
