Lily Allen Designs Lucy In Disguise Collection Inspired By Favorite Vintage Pieces

Lily Allen Designs Lucy In Disguise Collection Inspired By Favorite Vintage Pieces

Lucy In Disguise, the vintage store Lily Allen opened with her sister, Sarah Owen, last year (currently being featured in Lily Allen: Riches to Rags documentary) is getting a new vintage items addition. The Lucy In Disguise collection will consist of vintage inspired dresses featuring Lily and Sarah's favorite details from vintage pieces mixed together. If some of the looks seem familiar it's probably because you've seen the originals on Lily, like that sailor suit or the many maxi dresses. This is essentially what Rachel Zoe did with her own vintage inspired collection, although she probably kept some looks too close to the originals.

All of the dresses in Lucy In Disguise collection will have names like Capone, ...

The Row Pre-Fall 2011 Collection Is Simply Sharp

The Row Pre-Fall 2011 Collection Is Simply Sharp

The Row Pre-Fall 2011 collection is a clear proof of Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen's progress as designers. In the short time The Row exists, the aesthetic has progressed from rather deconstructed silhouettes and simple draped maxi dresses to a coherent blend of chic and sophisticated, perfectly tailored, office wear.

Still in muted color palette of dark neutrals and the occasional pop of camel or white, The Row Pre-Fall 2011 gives us a lot of pants. Straight-leg, wide-leg, skinny or short. In leather or wool. With simple tops or smart jackets. Plunging V-necklines are balanced out with long bottoms and the naive Peter Pan collars with the more aggressive leather shorts or skirt. And the maxis. Equipped with deep skirt slits, they ...

Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2011 Collection Is Oversize Coat Heaven

Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2011 Collection Is Oversize Coat Heaven

The new Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2011 collection makes me long for winter. Next winter.

Accentuating gray, black, navy and camel base colors with green, burgundy, mustard and the occasional orange, McCartney created a very fall appropriate color palette oozing with vintage vibes. Using geometric prints and clever cuts she created chunky knits and shift dresses both sophisticated and cute.

The main stars of the McCartney Pre-Fall 2011 collection are of course the oversize double-breasted boxy coats. Some in camel, others in navy and black, these coats are the ultimate nostalgic chic.

Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2011 Is All About Prints And Knits

Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2011 Is All About Prints And Knits

About the only thing Proenza Schouler's Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez took from Spring 2011 and continued into Pre-Fall 2011 are the neon colors, giving us a fiery pink sleeveless number and an orange wool coat. For Pre-Fall 2011 Proenza Schouler envisioned much, much longer hemlines and a wide array of Peruvian Ikat patterns, Guatemalan stripes and tribal prints. Statement knits, McCollough and Hernandez said, is what Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2011 is all about.

Unlike the previously sexy and coquettish Proenza Schouler school girl, for pre-fall she traded in her minis and lacy numbers for comfortable knee-length shorts and hippie Peruvian chunky knits. Even the more polished looks consisting of a tailored black coat is matched with a slouchy pant or ...

Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2011 Collection Softens Up With Knits And Plaid

Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2011 Collection Softens Up With Knits And Plaid

Nicolas Ghesquière's Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2011 collection sets one thing straight. Ghesquière is still not done with the futuristic cocoon silhouette. Balenciaga Pre-Fall 2011 very much continues Spring 2011 collection's androgynous and plastic-like motifs.

Although the fabrics are still stiff, the silhouettes are still cocoonish and the pants are still pencil-leg, Ghesquière has definitely softened things up a bit. He introduced more organic-feel materials like silk, fur, soft knits and wool plaid. It will be interesting to see how he will develop Balenciaga Fall 2011 further. Another collection of stiff androgynous silhouettes would be a bit one-note and we already know that Ghesquière is anything but.

Chanel Métiers d’Art Pre-Fall 2011 Paris-Byzance Collection

Chanel Métiers d’Art Pre-Fall 2011 Paris-Byzance Collection

This year for Chanel's Pre-Fall 2011 Métiers d'Art line, Karl Lagerfeld took us to the Byzantine era, after visiting Shanghai, Moscow, London, Los Angeles and Tokyo in years past.

Chanel uses the Pre-Fall season to showcase it's Métiers d'Art line, launched in 2002, which showcases luxury ready-to-wear pieces embellished with couture details. Métiers d'Art was set up as an ode to couture houses acquired by Chanel back in 1997 - Les maisons Lesage, Desrues, Lemarié, Michel, Massaro, Goossens and Guillet. All masters in their fields of embroidery, lace and leather goods.

Regal hues of greens, bronzes and golds, heavy embroidery and Byzantine elements created an especially luxurious and hedonistic collection, selling for the no less hedonistic price range of $4,000 - $40,000.

McQ Pre-Fall 2011: Back In McQueen’s Reign But Not Better

McQ Pre-Fall 2011: Back In McQueen’s Reign But Not Better

I was kind of shocked to see the McQ Pre-fall 2011 lookbook this morning. About a month ago, we learned that Alexander McQueen's diffusion line -McQ - that up until now was produced by licensees, will from now on be fully controlled and designed by Alexander McQueen's team of designers.

With the last McQ Fall 2010 collection looking like an odd 90's denim and patches mess, I thought we were in for an upgrade. Seems I was hoping for too much.

The new McQ Pre-Fall 2011 collection is also odd. I suppose it is meant to be preppy, but somehow it looks like a poor man's version of preppy. We also get a bizarre geeky goth look consisting of front-corset ...
