YSL, like so many other fall lines, was monochrome and dark – but not necessarily depressing and recession-y. Pilati took the classic moto jacket and revamped it, amping it up a bit; realistic streetwear was rampant. Yay!
Moulded leather trench, delish.
Kim Noorda. Big ruffles!
Constance Jablonski. Love this.
Caroline Trentini. Deep V.
At Stella McCartney, we were treated to not only the miniscule-heeled vegan thigh-highs (!), but mini-trenches that doubled as dresses, part of her move – seemingly – towards a more refined look, as opposed to the sportier look of previous collections.
Natasha Poly. Big knits, vegan boots big hits. Belt.
Freja Beha Erichsen.
Maryna Linchuk. Burst of blue! Metallic jacket as well.
Sigrid Agren. Classic Blazer. Not Sure Why I Capitalized That.
Sasha Pivovarova. Turquoisey & sheer.
Ali Stephens. Love the sheer, but the sunbursty slices are a bit too risque pour moi.
Eniko Mihalik. Love this. Sexy but feminine & girly at the same time.
Catherine McNeil. Shiny!
Raquel Zimmerman. Big! Shiny(ish)! 80s(ish)(sort of). While I’m not convinced of its wearability, I love this coat. 😛
VIKTOR & ROLF were clear on their theme: theatre. With the models sporting white mask-like makeup and draping abounding (somewhat resembling theatre curtains, perhaps?), you were transported to a stage with Roman sculptures – another influence (draping) – and presented with look after look, a large number of which could easily be swapped from the runway to an event.
Enika Mihalik. Grey trench with ruffles, ruffles everywhere!
Such a sweet trome l’oeil coat. Texture!
Just your basic pant & sheer top – draped shoulders & sleeves, of course.
Karlie Kloss. Beautifully draped copper dress. And boots to match!
Draped, metallic copper and a sheer pink blouse.
Iekeliene Stange. Blush suit – love the lapel!
Anne Vyalitsnya again. Love the embellished pants with the draped & sheer top.
Liya Kebede. Statuesque, draped, & colourblocked skirt. Aaagh, so gorgeous!
Karlie Kloss. Corset top, spiky & sculpted skirt.
Tanya Dziahileva. Love, love, LOVE the skirt.
Well, with this collection, Vik & Rolf have convinced me to add them to my List. 😀
