The new Fall/Winter 2012 Balmain collection walked in Paris, France for Paris Fashion Week. For this season the collection was inspired by Elizabeth Taylor’s personal jewelery collection. The clothing came in rich hues and had the classic intricate detail that is true to the fashion house.
When I look at the details, it is just amazing. The etched velvet, the beading, the knit, quilting, and tailoring. That is one thing this fashion house will never get wrong. You can see the collection below.
When I was looking at the new Fall Winter 2012 Erdem collection, I was wondering where all the floral and lace were, then they started popping up little by little. Erdem is a master with lace. I think he makes one of the best lace dresses in the business.
Blue seems to be a popular color choice this season. Many designers have shown many different shades of the color throughout the past few weeks. Erdem was not an exception. He showed lots of great variations of the color throughout his collection. You can see all of the looks in the gallery below.
I look forward to the Peter Pilotto prints each season. I love how bold they are and they once again didn’t disappoint me with the prints in the Fall/Winter 2012 collection. For this season, the show started of with the aquatic inspired prints and gradually went to florals.
The blues are so great, as they always are each season. I also think they have one of the best tailoring in the business, being that they show in London it is no surprise that they do. I also think it is great that they paired some looks with puffer jackets/vests. That added piece makes the looks more approachable in my opinion.
Here is the new Fall/Winter 2012 Acne collection. There was a ton of leather this season. I also find the collection to be very retro, very New Wave with the color palette and the silhouettes.
I find the looks to be very strong with the styling too. Separately, I think the pieces will work very well. I can see them being very popular with the younger hipster crowd. You can see the collection below.
