New York Fashion Week Fall 2011
Welcome to Moi Contre La Vie my fashionable friends!
I come to you today to share some highlights from New York Fashion Week’s Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear shows earlier in February.
Designers showed lots of silhouettes, lots of fur and lots of outerwear for fall. The really standout looks were striking in their intricacy, it was the embellishments that were truly eye-catching. Many designers have gone back to basics and embraced the history of their houses over the last few seasons, and while those cautious approaches continued, we also began to see some new life being breathed into the lines. You’ll still be able to find classic lines and minimalistic pieces in stores, but next fall we’ll get a bit more variety through unique fabrics, patterns, embroidery, stitching and embellishments.
Below are a handful of looks and trends presented that I believe can be transitioned into your closet (as opposed to those oh so gorgeous designs that belong in museums rather than in department store displays).
