    NEW YORK, September 16, 2009
    By Nicole Phelps
    Doo-Ri Chung, edgy? This is the designer who built her brand on slinky jersey dresses. But edgy is how she described her focused Spring collection, which was inspired in general by metals and specifically by an installation created by artist Annette Messager, My Wish Is Under Netting. What that meant is that many of the show's abbreviated cocktail dresses, sweet little blouses and shorts, tanks, and bubble skirts were swagged in thin chains or overlaid with tulle netting. It also meant that the majority of the 30 looks were gray or silver. The quilted silk opal dress that opened the show was a simple, streamlined knockout. Another look, with ruched gray tulle front and back, and silver sequins on the sides, was its sexy, curvy counterpoint. But what got the audience scribbling approvingly was the arrival of a royal blue frock, its bodice tucked and folded like a fan, and a blush jersey cocktail number dripping in chains. No surprise there. Even the edgiest girls need a hit of sweetness once in a while.

    After a stunning Fall collection, this is quite mediocre..too many cocktail dresses and she's straying into Sophia Kokosalaki's territory. Nothing's a standout of this, its disappointing

    Exactly, kiddo. I almost feel guilty for getting my hopes up but I was excited to see doo.ri last night and when I found the show.. I felt a little bummed to realise last season's was apparently a unusual moment of inspiration only.. this is unfortunately, as insipid as chung's collections have always been. :(

    Terribly disappointing... some of it is even borderline ugly, mainly those awful shiny fabrics. There is just something so irrelevant about the collection. This could be anyone's work, really. Doo.Ri is usually quite hit or miss but there is always relevancy to her work, this is just so mundane and mass-production looking...

    I wish she would play around with fabrics the way she once did. Like that miraculous collection with the wool pieces...

    i can hear those cash registers ringing. nothing revolutionary, but she gives us much edgier versions of the cocktail dresses and separates everyone needs anyway.
