My favorites of 2010 fall collections thus far.
Unbelievable perfection at Karen Walker. The socks, textiles, shoes and styling – that jewelry looks like this jewelry! Could it be…?
One of Karen’s best collections yet.
The perfect party skirt at DVF.
The perfect blues and plaids at A Detacher.
The perfect 90s hair at Alexander Wang.
70s-era Joan Didion chic at Boy by Band of Outsiders. Need that fur-collared jacket. (Plus saddle shoes!)
Beautiful, simple sportswear at Shipley & Halmos.
I’ve only ever looked at VPL’s lingerie and bikinis but these are great. Love the muted and metallic olive green palette, so rich and decadent for fall.
The second look by Vena Cava is probably my favorite look of the entire season thus far. The styling, the hem lines, that leather jacket with fur collar which I would trade all earthly possessions to own for one day. I know it’s gauche to be into the fur but this is bizarre, art deco decadence done so right.
Of course, I had to save my favorite designer for last. I almost always prefer Rachel Comey’s spring collections to her fall collections, but this is so light and fresh regardless. My obsession for imaginative textiles are made manifest in these insane printed pants she put out.
Classic Rachel Comey. Twinsets in electric blue, skirts that look like woven baskets. Wanna see that fabric up close. Don’t even get me started on fall’s collection of shoes.
I love the longer hemline on this F Scott Fitzgerald worthy dress although this won’t work on 99% of the population, including me. The print reminds me of my mother’s china.
Cropped velvet pants and dip dyed blouses with black lace overlay. Feels so different from the typical RC insouciance and yet, one of the best looks ever. So wearable too, gotta find those pants…
