One could go on & on about how there's too much fashion too soon, and while that is true, there were still plenty of captivating collections out there to get our sartorial senses geared for next season. Here's a look at our favorites for Fall 2011.
Nicolas Ghesquiere has proven again & again that he's fashion's most forward thinking designer and Fall's re-working of ideas from past seasons made for quite an original, and finally wearable proposition.
Raf Simon's Jil Sander woman has always been the cool, collected & confident type, but Fall's harmonious blend of couture shapes and techno retro ski-inspired separates had a high dose of subtle sophistication that could work on just about anyone.
Hannah MacGibbon once again proved her mastery at the girlish Parisian codes Chloe is known for with a pitch-perfect outing jam packed with must-have leather trousers, maxi dresses and new takes on daily essentials with a fresh attitude.
Easy pretty isn't something one may normally associate with any Miuccia Prada effort, yet her latest take on the 40's was charmingly seductive with its fuss-free ease and novel elegance.
Missoni's Fall range was a riot of decadent fabrications, treatments, prints, textures and shapes made mesmerizing by an assured hand at the stimulating powers of unadulterated color.
