In the last days in London and New York have been presented the Pre-fall/winter collection 2013-14. Among different styles and inspirations, these are, in my opinion, the best collections.
Bellstaff presents a collection, result of a mix among biker-like inspiration (trademark of the brand), and equestrian, minimal and urban chic styles. The collection also presents a lot of leather used, damped by the wise use of cotton and silk, the sheepskin (present on the bon ton dresses), lace and camouflage prints in the shades of beige, bordeaux and black.
MOSCHINO CHEAP & CHIC
An ironic and nicely transgressive collection that is able to clear the classical of garments like coats and patterns like spotted through the wise use of fabrics like silk, lace and velvet and colors: from red to shocking pink, from grey to black.
A collection characterized by elegance and classy. Played on the shades of white, grey and black with some touches of bordeaux and blue, this collection is composed by dresses with stright shapes, sometime flared, clean lines and a minimal chic mood that is made more and more sophisticated by the use of delicate fabrics like silk and organza.
For this collection the designer chose a nice retro style, characterized by silhouette with flared or high weist (typical of the decade 50's - 60's), floral prints and laces, made more easy and contemporary by the combination with the leather. The result? Absolutely chic!
Neo-victorian inspiration for this collection signed by Chanel. Presented in tribute to Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, among the illuminated ruins of Linlithgow Palace, her birthplace, the collection is a clear declaration of love to scottish style: a lot of tweed, coats inspired by kilts, jodhpurs, divided skirts, tartan jeans and a clear reference to modern sportwear. Inspired by the amazing landscapes of Scotland, Karl Lagerfeld made his personal tribute to tartan pattern and took the chance to change the look to classical scottish kilt, presented in chiffon and silk.
