PFW | FW13 part V

Lee has been one of my favorite designers to watch ever since Tommy Tom profiled one of his incredible collections at Australia fashion week a while ago. With a penchant for sharp, angular constructions and insanely cool graphic prints (note--those atmosphere storm pics!), Lee still manages to bring something fresh and eye-catching to the table each season. Something about the cut of his pieces is just so refreshing and aesthetically pleasing. 
I will admit that I found little to no cohesion throughout this collection, but that I loved some of the looks individually. The array of grecian drapery and furry patch looks in muted pastels caught my attention, but it was the vibrant vermillion look that kept me clicking. A floral pantsuit and intricately beaded neckline don't hurt either. 
I was intrigued by the effortless mood that Keller created in this fall collection (almost had a spring-y feel to it!). From the airy swiss-dots in paneled blouses and tutu-skirts to the amazing chain-link fence dress (still swooning), the pieces spoke to the Chloe heritage but maintained an air of updated modernity. 
I think we all know Paco Rabanne for his chain-mail dresses. It was great seeing a fresh reinvention of such a unique piece in different ways, seeing that it became a collared shirtdress and jumpsuit (or so I see?). Also, that intricately pleated silver skirt is everything. 
I need to get the major shoe vibes out of the way before I speak about the collection. Anything platform-tread-sole captures my attention like nothing else. 
As for McCartney's collection, I enjoyed the effortless draping and comfortable aura to the well-tailored pieces. The superimposing of aspects like tartan and pinstripes onto exaggerated silhouettes all in the spirit of menswear was what drew me in. Also, you all probably know by now that rounded sleeves and bulky volume are my thing.
