Leather trousers and a Masculine trench gets paired with a pearl necklace. A black hoodie gets feminine with a lace pencil skirt. A tweed jacket and shorts are paired with a black peplum top, and a matching fur Shaw. Leather baroque pants and a pearl necklace get dressed down with a black tee and jean jacket. And a sequined dress gets worn underneath a slouchy black hoodie for a more casual, daytimey feel. For Pre-Fall 2014, Vera Wang gives your favorite Masculine and Sporty inspired pieces a Feminine and Ladylike touch. Reminding me a little of Wang’s Fall 2013 collection, when it comes to the long gloves and the Beautiful baroque in hues of lavender and black. The collection feels oh-so-Beautiful and so right now, when the Masculine and Sporty elements come in to play. Leaving me wishing for some of the looks to appear under the Christmas tree.
After a Retro 1940s and Kramer vs Kramer inspired Spring collection this past September; for Pre-Fall Michael Kors keeps the vibe going, but in a more Masculine way. As trousers in khaki and tweed take the collection by storm. While trenches in checks and khaki in Menswear silhouettes polish off looks. For a more Masculine vibe. While bedazzled Wedgewood silk separates and a diamond brooch finish off every look for a more feminine, 1940s inspired vibe.
Giovanna Randall definately left a Masculine Mark this Pre-Fall season. As tailored suits, trenches, and blouses take roll. But Randall still seemed to add that signature Romantic vibe. As lace tights were paired with school girl inspired shifts. Sketches of feathers line the floor length skirts and Evening gowns. A fur jacket topped off a black full skirt and a white blouse, for a very 40s inspired look. And with the Romantic curls and soft but so Radiant makeup look that Yumi Lambert and Josefien Rodermains sported as they showed off the collection. The collection definately couldn’t get any better! Now what I want is those white lace tights for a cold Spring or Fall’s day.
Like my good friend, Emma, there are many Music Peeps, while on the other hand I am more into art. As is Bottega Veneta‘s Creative director, Tomas Maier, who gave Classic wardrobe staples an Artistic twist for Pre-Fall; leaving me pretty much obsessed with every piece. As a trench coat is seen in a floral print. A black pencil skirt feels more artsy with a scribble on the side. A white crew neck gets black animal spots. Black pants and Cocktail dresses get baroqued. And a black leather trench turns Pink.
As Iconic Creative Director, Emma Hill, (who by the way helped give the House of Mulberry a name), departed Mulberry. The first collection without the designer at the brand gave Classic staples a Cute and Cozy twist. The importance of outerwear was shown, as puffy coats get a trench inspired silhouette and are finished off with a cute little bow. The bow, itself, seen a lot throughout the collection, as the bow is also seen on Pea Green draping silk tops, paired with a Classic black suit or pencil skirt. And even giving a blouse in a horiziontally striped print, usually seen on your traditional menswear button-down, a cute and feminine twist. While a tan jumpsuit with paisleys embroidered all over it; makes me reminscene the days when Emma Hill reigned at Mulberry.
