falling for pre-fall

sorry for the utter cheesiness of the title.



here is what's happening on the pre-fall runways right now (aka what was happening on them circa like a week ago when i started this post...)

Zac Posen:

Zac Posen's collection was full of, to use the most over-used phrase in the entire world, "old Hollywood glamour". However, it was also a little 1920's show-girl-ish, with lots of fringe and such. Burberry Prorsum:

The Burberry Prorsum collection was wearably vintage-inspired, with some of the most beautiful prints ever.


Chanel was ridiculously decadent (who would expect less from Karl?). But the elaborate headdresses were paired with beautiful knits and re-imagined Chanel suits.

Doo Ri:
Doo Ri's collection was absolutely It-girl-esque. The clothes don't fight for attention, but have little details such as drop-waists and ruffles that make there wearer the coolest girl in the room.

Narciso Rodriguez:

Narciso Rodriguez's collection was full of beautiful cocktail dresses. Think a cooler version of what women's interest magazines advise their readers to wear to holiday parties.

Oscar de la Renta:

De la Renta's collection was, as per usual, relatively simple at first glance, but immaculately cut. Lots of beautiful, slightly pleated A-line skirts and cute jackets.

Carolina Herrera:

Herrera's collection was very Blair from Gossip Girl (you know that I connect EVERYTHING back to Queen B). It included lots of knee-length hem-lines and an almost 1940's silhouette.
