A Candy Coated Gucci Fall 2014

Ever since Pre-Fall 2014, Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini, has been a more simple route with her collections, leaving just as much a memorable statement as Marc Jacobs’ last Louis Vuitton show back in March. Kicking off Milan Fashion Week, every single a-list model that didn’t seem to make an appearance at New York Fashion Week, (think on the list of: Sigrid Agren, Anja Rubik, Kasia Struss, and Daria Strokous), stormed down the white-out Gucci catwalk, in a candy coated ensemble, and Equestrian boots in a light brown neutral, or Snakeskinned. As trenchcoats and outerwear seem to be the big thing at New York and London Fashion Weeks, they also seemed to make camo at Gucci, in militaristic inspired silohouettes and of course, fur. While outerwear, animal prints, and pastels may seem to be the big thing at Gucci, for the evening wear, Giannini sends out an array of leather cocktail dresses, plastered in silver, metallic chains. Definately the perfect collection for some Simplicity and Classic staples, with a bit of that bold, edgy twist; Purely Chic. A very Mod feel, overall.

Effortless Structure at Reed Krakoff

When you compare Reed Krakoff’s Pre-Fall collection, with his Fall collections, you see many similarities. Both collections use animal prints, such as leopard and snakeskin, furs and tweeds as a key fabric, and black & white as the key hues, but unlike Krakoff’s Fall, the Pre-Fall collection lacks one thing: structure. As pencil skirts get embellished in chains. A knit sweater gets fur embellished sleeves. And fabrics of all kinds get layered all together on a strapless gown, creating this such effortless structure.

ZAC Zac Posen Fall 2014 Gets You Ready for Spring, while Staying Warm

Jonathan Saunders Pre-Fall 2014 collection may have been a preview of what we are to expect at the just shy to it’s start, Fall 2014 Fashion Week. As Zac Posen releases his ZAC Zac Posen collection, demonstrating none other than giving floaty staples and Florals a Fall twist; when a halter maxi gets paired with a black blazer, an aqua floral scarf gets tied atop a tweed trench, and black floral hoes get paired with all your Classic, Ladylike staples for an extra bit of zest.

Australian Supermodel, (and the face of Marc Jacobs’ perfume “Dot”), Codie Young models the look.

A Flawless Variety, Indeed!

Raf Simons definitely doesn’t take the Pre-Fall season lightly, as fabrics and styles of all kinds were mixed and matched together; creating one lavishly Chic collection. Classic silhouettes, signature to the House of Dior and much of which Simons has been using ever since he took the regins at Dior, like the elegant trench coat, full skirt, peplum suit, and the shift, now get a more modern and futuristic touch. As the trench coat gets revamped in a very textured tweed like fabric in a Ballet Pink. The full skirt gets printed in Plaid, and pairs with a top in a similar print of Plaid. The peplum suit gets two-toned. While the shift gets an Artisitic and Futuristic twist, with painted flowers and sequins. And a Classic tailored suit gets finished off with a Graphic printed robe, making me wish that I could make a splash into a pool, overlooking the ocean in Vietnam. Making Christian Dior, one of the finest Fashion Houses, ready to conquer the future!!!! For a Flawless Variety, indeed!!!!!!!!!!!!
