Beating the Cold – The Chic Way at Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall

In the time between the switch of Marc Jacobs to Nicolas Ghesquière as Creative Director at Louis Vuitton, comes a Pre-Fall collection. Just like how I’d describe the velvet pants, zebra printed sweater, black Caridgan, and red scarf I wore yesterday; the collection most definately shows you how to Beat the Cold – The Chic Way. When an Oxblood sparkled skirt gets topped with a red sweater, leather boots, and a Ushanka. A short black collared dress gets warmed up with a Oxblood trench, Geometric thigh-high Boots, and a fur topper. And a fur jacket tops off a look warm enough to wear without a jacket in October.

1940s Silhouettes Channeled at Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2014

Peplum. A Fur Shaw. Tweed. Delicate Diamonds and Pearls. And an instant Hourglass figure. For Pre-Fall, Zac Posen takes note from 1940s inspired sillohouettes. Using the delicate and ladylike staples seen throughout the decade. But as the 1940s may be key, rich hues of Oxblood, Navy, Red, and even pastels, and some Ruffles are used to give the collection a modern twist. And with Zac Posen’s Beautiful signature ball gowns, what could be better?
