PARIS, October 5, 2006 - Cacharel's spring collection, designed by British duo Clements Ribeiro, was inspired by the photography of Sarah Moon. Her images from the 70s and 80s suggested a narrative hinting at sensual innuendoes. How that translated on the runway was easty to see - the collection was full of beautifully embellished pieces and notable for it's lack of pretension. The sleek design of a one strap short cotton dress, or the featherweight printed cocktail dresses certainly carried more than a whiff of seduction. But more importantly, especially from a marketing perspective, the clothes sang out the power of youth. Skirts were wound with studded black bands, and plastic jackets pealed back, almost as a flower's petals unfolding. The ideas all worked. Mustard-yellow, iris-blue, the colors for spring looked refreshing.

Inacio Ribeiro made a solo appearance on the catwalk this season since Suzanne Clements stayed in London to give birth to the couple's second child - a girl.
