Fendi, one of my perennial favorites. I thought of Europe, of Jane Austen, and of Van Gogh – don’t ask me why. The palette was subdued but rich, definitely saturated. What I didn’t like was how a lot of the looks weren’t very streamlined: bulky coats paired with a wider straight leg, worn with a lower heel; or a long skirt and a fairly boxy top. Worn separately, they’d be fine, nice and simple, but I didn’t always like the overall effect when worn together.
Just a few looks here –

Kasia Struss. I like the interesting jacket – the textures, cut and colors are all just unique when combined like this.

Arizona Muse. Not a fan of the skirt, but I love the fur.

Fendi Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear
Britt Maren. A simpler look, and I like it.

Abbey Lee Kershaw.

The shoes – I like the idea – the shape and color – but I’d have made the heel just a hair thinner and a pinch taller.

This one… again, I’d have made the heel a bit taller, and maybe not orange.. but then, it’s unique and kind of appealing in its own funky way.

Hate this one. Not sorry to say it. Chunky and unattractive.

This one I’d keep as is, height and all.

Righto. I need sleep. Check out the rest of the collection, it’s pretty good (coming from me).

Another of my favorite looks from Fall 2011: Burberry, of course, worn by Cara Delevingne. The military look has now shown up in some form or another in many of the past few seasons (kicked off, of course, by Balmain’s band jackets), and despite whatever the fashion critics du jour say, I think the general trend (pun intended) has always been and pretty much will always be cropping up somewhere, somehow. I like it here because it’s so basic and pared-down… speaking of pared down, if you watch the video Style.com has for this look and look at Cara’s legs (which sounds creepy but it isn’t), I think you’ll agree with me – these girls are too skinny! It just can’t be healthy for someone’s legs to look like that. It’s almost creepy.

I have to include this look too, worn by Liu Wen – though I can’t say I’m a fan of the cut of the sleeves, I’m a sucker for an exaggerated, turned-up collar.

Of the white looks towards the end of the show, this LWD stood out (Jacquelyn Jablonski) – a little mix of sailor, military, and Russian white:

And, I’m sorry, but what’s up with the shoe? It’s a bad mix of a 70s platform, a mule and a 50s kitten heel. Maybe with a little bit of wannabe stripper heel thrown in as well.

Another “I’m sorry, but…”: the bizarre, volumized, cow-print newsboy caps. I’m sorry but… I am *not* a fan of those hats for women. At all. Guys, sure – if done correctly (read: classily, if that’s a word). But on women… whenever I see one, I automatically flash back to the Britney Spears et al. of my preteen years: all sequins ande denim and/or suede newsboy caps. It’s a bad place to be stuck, but that’s where those hats belong.

The rest of the collection, I generally like, although I found a few of the cuts of the jackets to be unflattering, which is saying something when you’re talking about the Abbey Lee Kershaws and Jacquelyn Jablonskis of the world. Righto, off to study French. Ciao!

Stumbled upon this post from the Greyest Ghost – behind the scenes of the Chanel FW 2010 campaign with Abbey Lee Kershaw and Freja Beha Erichsen.

Issa: gave off a rather mixed vibe, varying from black and besequined items – short and very London-edgy – to a few tailored grey capes and jackets to a few furs and graphic floor-length dresses. Not very cohesive, it felt, but cool nonetheless.
