Zero + Maria Cornejo A/W 11-12

Images style.com

Yesterday I sourced through collections from February for inspiration and one designer that did catch my eye back then that I totally forgotten about is the NY based Chilean designer Maria Cornejo with her own brand name Zero + Maria Cornejo. I love these clean cut looks in her fall 2011 collection, simple, but beautifully draped luxurious fabrics, a little feel of avant-garde yet very wearable. If you’re really into more architectural pieces, check out the rest of her collection, there are plenty of them.

Givenchy A/W 11-12

I could stare my eyes out at Givenchy’s fall collection, though I wasn’t totally in love back in March I’m definitely now. What I love the most with this collection are the long silhouettes, voluminous upper parts combined with narrow lower parts, the beautiful embroidered jackets, knitted and silky jumpers, the colors scheme and the mix with patent leather, all so perfect, and unfortunately attached to a juicy prize tag or vice versa……

As for the Panther glasses, could be a hit this coming fall but I think I’ll pass.

Temperley

On Thursday I stopped by Temperley London‘s press office to see the fall collections close-up, Temperley, Alice by Temperley and Barbour Gold Label (Alice Temperley’s high end line for Barbour that will be in stores from June).

I found some pieces I really liked, among them a leather biker waistcoat and a cropped waxed jacket by Barbour. And though I’m not too much into red carpet and bridal pieces I couldn’t help myself admiring the gorgeous worked details.

Neck Collar

Loving these neck collars as seen on Michael Kors A/W 11-12 show and as there is a risk I would develop an anxiety attack wearing these I would probably go for something “less dramatic” and more comfortable. I’ve been looking around for alternatives without any luck but everyone sends me more or less in the same direction when I ask, to the bondage shops in Soho……. But as I rather hope to find it in a fashion jewellery section my hunt continues so please drop me a line if you have any tip.

Maison Martin Margiela A/W 11-12

Images style.com and vogue.com

Maison Martin Margiela never does anything within “normal standards”. A coat is never just a coat but a piece of art, there are always some special details, either as cuts in sleeves, zippers or the front and back are 2 completely different things. When i watched the show live I wasn’t so enthusiastic about it but my favorites are definitely the coats and some of the accessories, like the oversized clutches and the crazy nutty rings even if I know they are totally not wearable. See the whole collection here.

Chanels‘s urban fall collection that was presented the other day is the youngest and most wearable I’ve seen by Lagerfeld and not very often do the models look like their young age but they did in these looks. I can’t say I loved it all but there’s something very interesting with those loose fitted jumpsuits and footwear.

You can see the whole collection here or I’ve made a small article on Flingly

Chloe A/W 11-12

Chloe’s fall collection 11-12 featured a lot of python and animal prints which really isn’t my cup of tea but I love these lederhosen and the colorful cape.

Celine A/W 11-12

This afternoon I watched the Celine show live and I’ve been waiting impatiently ever since I saw the pre-fall collection in January. This collection continued where the previous one ended, the dominance of metallics, blues and burgundy were now switched to brown and beige tones. To me this collection fully lived up to my expectations, in fact I think I love everything from the combo of white turtle necks with the side patched tailored trousers, beautiful clean cut long coats, the shoes and bags to the models hair and make. My absolute favorite collection from Paris so far and it’s in the same street as my favorite from Milan, Jil Sander.

What do you think? See the whole collection here.

Balenciaga A/W 11-12

At 9 am this morning I was glued to my screen to watch the Balenciaga show live and here’s some of the looks which pretty much represent the rest of the collection. I really like this even though I find some of the looks a bit hard to pull off but judged as individual pieces a completely different thing.

One keyword, leather, plenty of it, as jackets, trousers, fishnets, as patches and even some knitted detailed leather jackets, tops and bags. There were many of the floral patterned just-below-the-knee-skirts that I’m not over the moon about but I really think it works with the leather. The colors overall goes in black, white, blues, gray, burgundy and silver metallics and those booties, please send my way!

Ann-Sofie Back Atelje A/W 11-12

All images by me

Today I attended the Swedish designer Ann-Sofie Back Atelje‘s presentation at the Portico Rooms at the Somerset House and it was actually one of the best collections I’ve seen so far this fashion week, having that said her designs really appeal to me and I love that she’s taken a step away from the “ugly” looks she did in the past and now creates beautiful, clean cut, tailored basics in gorgeous fabrics with that special detail. Pay attention to the metal details on everything from the shirt, blazer, and accessories, so clean, so stylish with an edge.
