pre-fall 2012: no. 21, louis vuitton, band of outsiders.

collections Uncategorized

the pre-fall collections keep on coming…here are more of my favorites.

no. 21
i can’t seem to get enough of alessandro dell’acqua’s no. 21, and the pre-fall collection is all about the menswear/womenswear mix. double breasted coats in camel and button front shirts, fair isle sweaters, and cropped crease front trousers blended seamlessly with crystal pleated skirts, silk jacquard bombers, and lace overlay cocktail dresses.

louis vuitton
over at louis vuitton, marc jacobs kept the ladylike feel that he started in spring, with car coats, plaid skirts, fur trimmed shifts, balloon sleeve jackets, but toughened it up with exposed zippers, moto jackets, and skinny leather pants.

band of outsiders
band of outsiders’ designer scott sternberg was inspired by the woody allen movie manhattan for pre-fall. diane keaton’s wardrobe of cord suits, plaid, and menswear shirts were perfect for this line, where sternberg constantly borrows from the boys to create chic pieces for women. my favorites were khakis with stretch striped ankle cuffs, plaid peplum dresses, tie waist shirtdresses, and grey melange suiting separates.
