Fall 2012 RTW Reem Acra

Just one word will suffice. Glamourous. The sight of glitter, sequins and shiny things makes me happy! Reem Acra's collection starts with simple and extremely well fitted skirt suits and dresses. Combinations of leather and sequins make the dress unknowingly provocative. I absolutely loved the lace high neck top paired with sequin pants. the styling there is spot on. The combination of the two doesn't clash at all. The bronze-grey suit was my favourite. The embellishments on it make it look really rich. We then descended to a 20's esque dress which is…Read more

Fall 2012 RTW Kenzo

Frankly, I'm excited to see the colour and madness that Kenzo offers every season. This collection is no different! A big trend here are skater dresses and oversize sleeves. These are repeated in every fabric thats on show. I read in the interview that this collection is inspired by interiors. By that virtue, we have carpets, wallpaper, marble, tiles and laminates! But the feminine cuts and patterns keep this collection interesting. The 4th printed dress looks very classy, as does the brown/taupe skater dress. Satin jumpsuits in bright colours  are one of the…Read more

Fall 2012 RTW Christian Dior

Dior's Fall collection left me a bit uninspired to be honest. The dresses were simple yet flowy and honed on how one should feel when its srping. But there was little that wowed me with the possible exception of Ajak's Navy Blue dress with the oversized bow and handwork across the neck. The outfits aimed at drawing attention to the neck with its wide twist opening and the waist with the peplums and flared skirts. The palette for the most part seemed subdued in blacks, taupes and greys. Towards the end of the…Read more

Fall 2012 RTW Dries Van Noten

This collection is very sleek and visually interesting prints. The silk patterns,  bright colours blocked against black and white, its a very different aesthetic this season. The silhouettes are kimono style and minimalistic with asymmetric design. I just love how bright the patterns are.   Fall 2012 RTW Dries Van Noten   Image Credit : Style.com | Entire Collection  Read more

Fall 2012 RTW Alberta Ferretti

Ferretti's collection is sublime. The silhouttes are body hugging and look like second skin and very light. I love the chiffon and sheer material with all the embroidery. The dresses have clean cuts and the floral handiwork around it. It's a nice design contrast. The gowns are so beautiful and flowy! I love the collection!

Fall 2012 RTW Jil Sander

I'm so sad to see Raf Simmons leave Jil Sander. This was such an elegant and just pretty collection. I know I say a lot that I hate ill-proportioned and oversized clothes. But this was the text book of how oversized clothing can look graceful and feminine. That big red coat is going to be sold out! The pink and beige satin dress has a 20's vibe to it. The collection looked timeless. It represents the soft and pretty side of winter. The nude/pastel dresses look very elegant. The coats and dresses paired…Read more
Fall 2012 RTW Miu Miu

Fall 2012 RTW Miu Miu

Miu Miu has suited up this fall. Beautiful pantsuits in silk. The patterns are vibrant and eye catching. This collection adds so much warmth to the fall season. I don't particularly like the silhoutettes of the suits. But no doubt these pieces when worn together or as separates aim to get attention. I like the deep toned magenta and purple print. These would look so good with gold jewellery. The shoes are a brogue and wedge combined style.   Fall 2012 RTW Miu Miu     Image Credit : Style.com | Entire CollectionRead more
Fall 2012 RTW Mulberry

Fall 2012 RTW Mulberry

In my opinion, this wasn't a stellar show. I clothes and prints were average and it seemed all over the place. It seems lacklustre compared to the previous seasons. The bags will no doubt be a hit but I'm not too impressed with the clothes. The colourful splat print doesn't look unique or expensive (unlike the price tag). The silhouettes were simple with pencil skirts and large coats. Fall 2012 RTW Mulberry       Image Credit : Style.com | Entire CollectionRead more
Fall 2012 RTW Alexander McQueen

Fall 2012 RTW Alexander McQueen

Poodle. Cousin It. Lady Gaga. Whooa... what?? Reading comments for this collection was a fun fest. I will begin by saying this. There are some collections which more art than they are clothing. I'm not biased but if the art isn't good and neither is the clothing, its pointless. So now, I can't imagine how anyone didn't like this collection. Sure, its eccentric. Its McQueen. But you can't not stare and wonder at how all this was made and not notice the beauty in the collection. I'll start with the shoes. How adorable…Read more
Fall 2012 RTW Burberry Prorsum

Fall 2012 RTW Burberry Prorsum

This season's Burberry is poised to reflect on austerity, an old vibe and bows. Bag utilitarian pockets, peplums are all in sync but the traditional fall colours such as navy,  camel, and greys.  Some of the looks are bold with structural skirts. But one thing just didn't sit with me well; the owls. I loved the whole owl trend, they're cute. But isn't it over? I don't think I can take more owl's for another season, especially because they are stylized the same way! I didn't find this collection as memorable as the…Read more
