Fashion’s Fresh Start
I know I’m embarrassingly late in sharing my favourite Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear looks, but as I explained, I was a bit out of touch with the world of designers until recently. I figure, this is around the time we start to see fall lines beginning to make their way into stores. I always love to see how the runway looks trickle-down into affordable high street items. So I wanted to make this post for a little fall fashion inspiration!
Historically, Blumarine and I have a hit-or-miss relationship. I either love, or hate what I see strutting down the runway. I have to say, Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear was an absolute hit with me. I love the silvery and light materials (just because it’s autumn, doesn’t mean everything has to be dark). The light, airy, flowing silhouettes are gorgeous, layered under fluffy jackets.
Chanel will always have it’s classic elements, primarily black and white and new takes on the eponymous suit. I love the patent, pointed-toe flats the almost witchy collection the house brought out for fall.
I fell in love with Dior back when John Galliano was head designer. I’m not sure how to sum up the Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection at Dior. I did love the oversized black & white sweater en Français. The second outfit gives me total Cher Horowitz vibes and I always love a good mesh top embellished with floral appliqués.
Unpopular opinion, no doubt, but I love the creepy addition of models carrying their own heads at Gucci I feel its very apropos to the autumnal story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Part of the experience of a fashion show goes beyond showing the fashion house’s upcoming collection. I always love seeing how the designer will pull everything together, from matching wigs, to venue, to interesting props, such as these severed heads.
Mulberry had one of my favourite collections of the season. All the faux-feathered trimming and heels is one of my favourite ways to embellish. I love the young and feminine skirt and dress silhouettes. I need a pair of those socks this season!
The draping silhouettes at Tory Burch are a unique look. I want those pants for the office, the slightly slouchy and unkempt look makes them interesting and a unique departure from typical work wear.
I’m really more of a RED Valentino girl and find the original fashion house (although gorgeous) a bit mature for my taste. I would not myself wear any of these, but I think all the cuts are gorgeous, especially the plunging neckline, which I would probably wear in a solid colour. Being a Toronto girl, I tend to stay away from prints and colour (we are a very monochrome and minimalist city when it comes to fashion).
