PRE-FALL '13 Loves III

With a nod to her FW12 collection that featured beautiful baroque scroll and floral motif embroidery, this collection is equally as bold. She expanded her palette into the warm colors by welcoming a pair of hot orange trousers peeking out from an oversize camel coat (not pictured), and then ended with a beautiful colorblocked gown patched with a surprise block of velvet. 
This collection definitely encompassed the city girl roaming the concrete jungle during fashion week, IMO. Casual basics were presented in ultra luxe materials and cut to a tee. The neon accented buildings in the skyscape pants are fantastic, as are those lust-worthy ankle boots. Pointy black ankle boots just GET ME.
Of course, Phoebe did it again. This prefall season has really made me dwell in my oversized black coat   more often lately, and I'm loving it. Larger than life (and perhaps wearability) proportions contrasted with sharply tailored skirts, trousers, and blouses make for a great collection if you ask me. Also, can we talk about those grand platform wedges please?!
Sarah Burton continues to give off more good vibes with the most recent collection. There was the same drama and dignified elegance (without frivolity) in the strong, and almost basic, silhouettes.
The most difficult thing was trying to get a single theme out of this collection. I saw a pilgrim -vampire-victorian era-snow queen, what do you see?
I wasn't really feeling the collection until I examined it in its entirety. The gradual transition from sharp lines and an austere palette to puffy, almost frothy, silhouettes and a last delicate floral number was what persuaded me. I would also like to one of the comforter-esque coats and the two buckled ankle boots, please.

В исследовательском центре Европейской организации сообразно ядерным исследованиям (ЦЕРН) получили очень неожиданные результаты, которые привели физиков в замешательство: похоже, который субатомные частицы могут идти со скоростью, превышающей поспешность света.Пучок нейтрино, направленный из ЦЕРН в подземную лабораторию Гран-Сассо в Италии для расстояние в 732 км, прибыл для округ назначения, как сообщается, для маломальски миллиардных долей секунды прежде, чем если желание передвигался со скоростью света.Итоги экспериментов в скором времени будут помещены в интернете, чтобы их могли выучить совершенно желающие эксперты.Осторожность ученых, которые не спешат заявить о новом открытии, понятна – разве результаты подтвердятся, то целое столетие развития физической науки окажется под вопросом.Директор исследовательской лаборатории ЦЕРНа назвал результаты экспериментов "простой невероятными".Был ли прав Эйнштейн?
