collection images: elie tahari, resort

always interesting take on color, the elie tahair resort collection was based in a palette of golden yellows & sand tones that warmed to a set of bold salmon, eventually cooling to blues with khaki sprinkles. an air of exotic style is always felt fromt the tahair label & even in the pre-season this was still an active theme. a boundless showing of style versatility was seen as gowns, blazers & even hot pants seemed to make their way into the collection. i love the air of sophistication felt in the collection & really admire the number of looks that have been created. i feel as though the resort collections act as a pacifier for us fashion hungry consumers. with as wide ranged as the styles & number of outfit options these first few collections have spawned, designers have made a valiant effort thus far. the commonality of exageratted lines is well executed.

fall collections, london: antonio berrardi

as my favorite collection, thus far, at london fashion week; the antonio berrardi FW11 womenswear collection is one of undeniable style, sheer sophistication & progressive construction. with an entrance comprised of white designs & dramatized lines, i was super impressed by how innovative the berrardi label decided to go this season. use of metallics & perforated details were seen combined with classically progressive concepts. fur blend coats & monochromatic geometric color blocking concepts allowed the collection to take on greater forms of creativity, outside of the stunning aspect of exaggerated lines. beautifully constructed grey wool coats were seen in the collection, further allowing a modern feel to be represented. from white to black, the collections palette went from gray to an array of bright tones fused with metallic details as intense bouts of navy were combined with use of lace. it was complete sophistication from start to finish & i would consider this the best collection of london fashion week thus far. any designer that can touch on concepts of classical style with refined details like lace & metallics while balancing all elements perfectly is one of specialized skill. greatly demonstrated creativity was seen.

miranda kerr, kasia struss + for jil sander


miranda kerr, kasia struss &  aiden andrews appear for the fall jil sander campaign, through the lens of willy vanderperre. with styling for the campaign by olivier rizzo, hair & make-up was done by paul hanlon & peter phillips. extending their lead for the minimal design age, the jil sander label creates a stunning set of displayed images with simplistic style ease. exagerrated body lines & fluidity are showcased through both miranda & kasia, with structure presenting strength with aiden’s menswear spot. something this simple & striking is faultless in my eyes. the choice to do something so boldly minimal makes it all the more interesting. miranda is represented by IMG,  kasia by women models & aiden by ford. the clothes are showcased very well, the essence of the brand is felt with an increasingly intense energy this season. i love this, entirely.
