Just posting my top pre-fall 2012 picks. Yep, fresh off the runway.
Reminiscent of the 60s and 70s, Chloé’s PF2012 look consisted of flowy proportions, oversized coats, and pleats. Clare Waight Keller, Chloé’s creative director, calls her second collection “a mishmash.”
Lest I forget, the boots are part of the collection. Those knee-high boots are certainly to-die-for, except that we can’t wear that here in the tropics. Givenchy’s PF2012 collection is inspired of the 50s and 70s, highlighted by the jackets (which had to be the strongest looks of this collection).
Alexander Wang utilized trompe l’oeil technique in this pre-fall collection. Houndstooth patterns and glen plaids became burnout sweaters and intarsia knit dresses [source]. Wang is usually known for his street style designs, but this collection focused more on menswear-turned-chic. Key pieces were jackets, pants, and vests that remind us ladies of the office. Who says corporate attire can’t look chic? Ask Alexander Wang.

P.P.S. I missed doing this. 🙂 You could pretty much guess what pieces I’m drooling over at the moment–yep, jackets 😛 Tailored jackets as fine as the ones shown above are quite hard to find, unless you’re a rich kid. And I’m not. So I guess I have to make ipon before I get my hands on those precious jackets. Oh well, I can dream. 🙂
