Pre-fall 2013: Lela Rose, Kelly Wearstler, Missoni, Nicole Miller, Opening Ceremony, Prabal Gurung, Preen
I can't say I paid much attention to Lela Rose before, but I definitely like this pre-fall collection. My favorites are the saffron-colored dress and the colorblocked moto jacket (2nd to last).
Of note: Painterly influences, inspired colorblocking, flats (give those feet a break!), occasional pops of saturated color.
Look at Kelly Wearstler, getting all graphic 'n stuff! I think her designs improve with each season, which is great, considering what a force she is in the interior design world.
Of note: Cutouts in unexpected places, all leather everythang, futuristic harlequin prints.
White Witch would wear, doesn't it? Snowy grays and whites to blend into the landscape... and a collar made from Mr. Tumnus' family members, likely.
Of note: Platform boots, fur collars, tweed.
Of note: Rider caps (there are some cute ones floating around with ears on them, if that's your sort of thing), zig zag prints, CMYK inspiration.
Where do I even start? I love this. The prints are cool, the shoes are awesome, there are metallics and bright colors as far as the eye can see...
I have to say, I was really excited for the Prabal Gurung x Target collaboration coming soon (next month, I think), until I looked at the catalogue and realized that if I got everything I wanted, I'd spend over $600. I'm still excited, but I'll have to edit my choices waaaaaaaaaaaay down, because ain't nobody got money for that.
Anyway, of note: neon splashes, a healthy dose of white, head-to-toe prints.
I quite like this punky side of Preen... it's interesting.
Of note: Plaid & leather, slouchy silhouettes, winklepickers and Chelsea boots. Oh, velvet too.
