Designer Collections: Old Navy’s New Look for Fall 2010

April 26, 2010

 Old Navy is attempting has created a fall collection worthy of mentioning. I have to say the last couple of years of their fall fashion has kinda sucked a bit. This new collection looks promising though. The pants appear to be more tailored, the blouses get more fluff and the sweaters have more variety.

I don’t normally wear ponchos but the one pictured above  is pretty cool, but I would add a belt. The fur vests are great paired with jeans and the tiered skirts are ladylike and trendy.

 Bottom line: Looks like Old Navy is making a comeback. 
What do you think?

March 28, 2010
From Ford’s final run at Gucci for fall 2004.

Designer Tom Ford is compiling his design team for his new women’s ready-to-wear collection. Known for his spectacular marketing efforts and popularity among the celebrity set, Ford has yet to set a date for when his collection will launch. But one thing is clear, he’s going after the best designers in the business to help him create the line.

Current designers on tentatively on board include Givenchy women’s ready-to-wear designer, Caroline Tixier and Alexander McQueen accessories designer Pablo Coppola. Rumors are circulating that Ford plans to have the collection ready for fall 2011, giving him a little more than a year to prepare.

The former Gucci designer is said to be contemplating a New York or Milan debut as well as scouting for retail partnerships for the brand. Financing is also an issue, as many investors are reluctant to shell out money due to the economy.

Currently Ford has a licensing deal with the Ermenegildo Zegna Group for his men’s collection, as well as the Marcolin Group for eyewear and Estee Lauder for fragrances and beauty products. We’ll be watching Ford closely as his women’s brand develops.

Fashion Week: Aquascutum Fall 2010

February 23, 2010

Coats, jackets and long skirts were the center of attention for Aquascutum. The latest fall collection is combining daytime chic with evening glamor, complete with adornment and detail. It’s almost as if the models were dressed for an formal ball at a ski-lodge, complete with puff jackets and toe-dusting gowns. But it’s cool though! I’m digging this collection, simply because the garments were flawless and the models carried them off with no problem. Sometimes the simplest and most amazingly usual looks are the best. This is one of those times.
