Ports 1961 is known for its knits but the Spring 2009 collection took a minor turn from the usual. The brand chose liquid fabrics and metallics for its collection. An iridescent orange dress with a hint of a pink slip stole the show. Overall, dress shapes were a throwback to the mod era featuring minidresses with shapely shoulders and geometric cutouts. Most styles within the collection were tribal-inspired and earthy with feathers, wood and other natural materials. Silhouettes were slim but not form fitting, appropriate for the Ports woman.
