Vera Wang Gives Sporty and Masculine Elements a Ladylike Touch

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.

A Playful Spirit at Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2014

Instead of having private appointments, Carolina Herrera decided to switch things up by presenting for Pre-Fall 2014 collection Cocktail Party style. The theme definately made perfect sense, as the collection showed off this Playful Spirit that’ll be sure to brighten up any festivity. A honeycomb patterned skirt gets paired with an olive sweater with black feathers on the bottom. Flowers get plastered onto your favorite evening gowns. White and Ruffles make a splash when paired with tweed. And white bumble bees get printed onto a tangerine skirt suit. Perfectly playing in with the collection’s catchphrase: “Bee Happy.”

Dennis Basso Is In a Celebratory Mood for Pre-Fall

As Dennis Basso reaches the 30th Anniversary of his label. He’s in none other than a celebratory mood, as he designs his Pre-Fall collection. Inspired by London in the 1960s, the collection takes a Vintage feel, but most definately with a Celebratory, modern twist. “Pre-fall can be uptown or it can be downtown,” the designer told WWD. “It’s all about the woman taking the pieces and making them her own.”
Getting to that point, a paisley printed top paired under a fur houndstooth Shaw, gives off a “Ready to Party” vibe. While an LBD goes Edgy underneath a black crocodile skin jacket with a bedazzled collar, and thigh-high Equestrian boots underneath. And a Sparkled evening gown gets transformed into daywear, when worn underneath a fur top with black thigh-high Equestrian boots, and finished off with a Chocolate Crocodile skin handbag and black gloves. I’m just left extremely in love with the collection as a whole.

It’s All About Pink at Vera Wang Fall 2014 Bridal

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Inspired by films like ‘Funny Face‘ and Christian Dior himself, Vera Wang plays with hues none other than Pink. Using hues ranging from, Coral to Ballet Pink, Wang designs the ultimate fantasy gown for any GirI, (like me), who is willing to go against the grain of the traditional white gown for their wedding. One thing that I love that Wang does in the collection, is playing with many fabrics and silhouettes. She uses fabrics of lace and chiffon, while using many floral appliqués. And silhouettes ranging from the mermaid style, to the ultimate fluffy ball gown.
