Summer is officially over September 22nd and yet Fall Fashion is already upon us. On September 10th, FNO came into full effect (also known as Fashion’s Night Out). Many people were out-n-about frequenting boutiques and department stores for some much needed swipe-swipe-swipe of their credit cards. And this is where I come in; out of hundreds of top name designer brands, I have here a list of:
Eleven Top Designers For Fall 2010
Burberry Prorsum: Military-inspired jackets and coats, shearling outerwear, mohair collars and earth-toned skinny dress-pants. Jaw-dropping snake-skinned thigh-high boots and jeweled colors, such as sapphire, popped in ruffled separates and dresses.
Chanel: Out of the entire collection, the classic tweed jacket and matching skirt stood out the most. There was much ado with earth tones palettes with hints of black, all intricately woven and equally stunning.
Chloe: Camel is all the rage this season and Chloe presented a timeless collection of camel craze with beige wide-leg trousers, trenches, wool-separates, chunky sweaters and elements of leather. A particular favorite was a demin button-down, fashionably paired with a vest, trousers and a trench.
Christian Dior kept it fun and flirty with schoolgirl chic. Some notable pieces were chiffon blouses and dresses and leather thigh-high boots and trenches.
Dolce and Gabanna were definitely inspired by classic allure, pairing the iconic tweed jacket with notes of beige and lace. Dresses in leopard, dotted and satin (gold and red), a mix of winter wool and simplistic black dresses and skirts splashed with floral prints.
Emanuel Ungaro kept it hip and funky with an array of rich and vibrant colors. Gold, magenta, blue-green paired off with leopard prints. Then along came festive Mary Jane peep-toes, orange-red accessories and satin pants. There was a mix of dresses (solid and patterned) in luscious fabrics like chiffon, satin and ruffled texture.
Helmet Lang revolutionized classic black and heather-grey to an unbelievable level; mystical hooded sweaters, innovative one-button blazers and chunky cowl neck pieces. There were futuristic versions of mod and dresses and tops were cloaked in drips of paint, ranging from earthy to black-n-white.
Louis Vuitton returned us to elegance with an ultra feminine line of tulip skirts and dresses, knitted sweaters, pointy sling-backs and puffy shoulder-jackets and gowns.
Roberto Cavalli: Arctic world meets Africa wild meets Amazon jungle with an array of furs and animal print. A strong presence of leopard dominated the runway with equally breath-taking python pants.
Salvatore Ferragamo channeled menswear classic in a delightful presentation of fall fashion.
Stella McCartney created a sumptuous cocktail with a mix of sexy and classic with comfy and tailored; suits, stripes, skinny dress-pants and dynamic hints of lively colors all made their way effectively down the catwalk.
