Please forgive the gap time between the last post and this one (!) I recently settled back into my dorm in the city!
Anyways, here are the final round of pre-fall looks I call my favorites,
Even by the styling of the photos, this collection exuded an edgy vibe synonymous with, say, a downtown girl (a la Alexander Wang). Naturally, I was drawn to the heavy use of rich leathers and a minimal color palette.
I was most intrigued by the sheer variety of colors, textures, and silhouettes used by Henry in this pre-fall collection. An otherwise classic rendition of a speckled wool coat was reinvented with an other-hued flouting lapel and then mid-collection there appeared a beetle-green metallic number that blew my mind. The curved hems were also ace.
I can never resist a classic collection with a twist. The pre-fall line was a grand mixture of daring newness (metallic PVC mini, yes) and finely tailored classics (those pleat trousers are everything). A dreamy canvas of grayscale florals along with rich magentas and ballet slipper pinks sealed the deal.
I thoroughly enjoyed the play of volume throughout this pre-fall collection. The closely cropped moto jackets with ballooned sleeves, the gigantic color-accented lapels, the lantern skirts-all tailored to perfection.
