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?

Fall Trends: Hand in Glove

 Leather and ladylike gloves at Louis Vuitton.

Gloves make an exceptional comeback for fall 2010. Fashion week saw gloves in the shows of some of the hottest designers including Yves Saint Laurent, Derek Lam, Carolina Herrera, Donna Karan and Prada. Rich leathers, cozy knits and jeweled gloves should make for a warm and chic seasonal accessory.

Fashion Week: Burberry Prorsum

February 25, 2010

 Best known for their trench coats, Burberry has propelled outerwear to a whole new level. The fall 2010 collection is dominated by coats, pencil skirts, boots and draping. Giant collars and military-inspired looks are paired well with the slim-fitting skirts and leggings. Wine, olive, mustard, mahogany, black, and navy hues are plentiful. The looks in this collection are one of the most impressive to date.

 
 

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.

Fashion Preview: Diane von Furstenberg Pre-Fall 2010 Ready-to-Wear

January 15, 2010

Diane von Furstenberg is my kinda girl. She designs with intention and knows how to keep even the most structured looks feminine. Known for her signature wrap dresses, she doesn’t fall behind when it comes to designing other garments. Her latest effort is a touch modern chic and a dash of bohemian with a classic ladylike twist.
