Fall 2014 Trend Guide

It seems like this season, we are celebrating and at this party, the hors d’oeuvres include color, comfort and music.

Fall 2014 Trend Guide

1. Get Cozy in Color

Fur, baby, fur! In a world where leather isn’t so frowned upon, we need to move on past the whole fur is mean thing. As Karl Lagerfeld says, “stressing over fur as a topic of issue is just childish.” I almost think fur is a requirement for fall, I think the leaves change colors when they sense the cozy plush being pulled from winter closets (or in Carrie Bradshaw’s case- the oven) everywhere. Fur doesn’t have to be so classic- it could be modern and fun and colorful.

2. Vibrating Edges

Two colors “vibrate” because they are opposite hues on the color wheel.  Both colors are equal in value, equal in intensity, but opposite in hue. This combination will result in this badass, ironically edgy.

3. Let’s Knit Together

Knit took over everything this season. Fall 2014 will forever be known as the season of knit. I mean, why not? There’s a certain sense of beauty and seemingly unattainable elegance when knit is styled perfectly. Whether it’s a daringly form-fitting dress from Lanvin to an androgynous head to toe knit ensemble from Haider Ackerman or something simple but pristine like a nice, whimsical sweater from Nina Ricci.

4. Let our Ensemble Dance

Fashion takes over Electronic Dance Music. Or is it that EDM takes over fashion? Fashion and music have always been BFF’s. I mean have you heard of Lady Gaga and Kanye? But this season, it doesn’t seem like music is wearing fashion, it is that fashion is wearing music.

Fashion is a celebration, so celebrate. 

Throwback Thursday: The Oldest Jet-Setter in the Book!

Hats off to Louis Vuitton! The fashion house was founded in the year 1854 and hasn’t skipped a beat since!

Louis Vuitton is one of the world’s leading international fashion houses and  has been named the world’s most valuable luxury brand 6 consecutive years in a row, with its value at 25.9 billion dollars in 2012. Since the 19th century, the construction of Louis Vuitton goods haven’t changed one bit: Luggage is still made by hand, the wooden frames of each trunk are made of 30-year-old poplar that has been allowed to dry for at least four years. Each trunk has a serial number and can take up to 60 hours to make, while a single suitcase can take as many as 15 hours to complete.  

Without a doubt, the most stylish women in the world have Louis Vuitton in their closet.  The name not only speaks of quality and luxury, but also its ability to withstand the test of time after 159 years, and that quite a cause for celebration!

Fit for a Queen at Alexander McQueen PFW F/W’13

Sarah Burton delivered a breathtaking, pearl-encrusted Alexander McQueen show that made us think of an incredibly stylish Elizabethan tale. With floor length gowns, gold embellishments, headpieces, feathers, and puffed sleeves, these looks truly resemble something out of a couture fairy tale and they took our breath away. The pearl embellished details from head-to-toe (including tights and boots) were absolutely stunning and feminine, and the feathered sandals were a fun and chic finish for the looks. With chunky silver belts and intricate details, this show was truly a stunning work of art.

Featuring lace collars, long floral dresses, and scalloped details, the Valentino F/W Fall ’13 show featured beautiful and intricate creations that highlighted a chic and playful spin on ultra-feminine clothing. There is no question that these clothes are exquisitely made, and just a couple of steps short of Haute Couture and Valentino went for a much more frilly look than in years past. With lace collars and cuffs, the collection will be sought after come fall, and the looks are very versatile for a multitude of occasions. Combining cashmere and lace gave off a delicate and lady-like image, while the leather dresses and unexpected pops of color jazzed things up. The oriental-inspired floral patterns on both the long and shorter dresses were an unexpected delight, and overall there were plenty of gowns that we expect to be gracing the red carpet in the fall!

We are obsessed with the Céline totes that have been hitting streets everywhere, so we were anxiously anticipating the runway collection at Paris Fashion Week! Céline delivered a beautifully soft palette for their fall looks, and incorporated plaids (a common fall runway trend) into their oversized coats. Pairing delicate, feminine tones with colored pants, boots, and plenty of gray, the collection had a classic, minimal-chic feel. We were hoping to see some of the traditional totes, but loved that the soft clutch bags that the models held close were made of the same fabrics as the clothes themselves. In a nod to the 90s trend of wrapping your sweater around your waist, the designer showed a variety of coats and dresses with wrapped sleeves, offering a fashion-forward touch to the minimalist collection. Incorporating a feminine feel to her creations, designer Phoebe Philo sent the message that the Céline image was softening up for fall. “In other words, exit the too-cool-for-school tomboy and enter the lady.”

Following the controversial change of brand name from Yves Saint Laurent to Saint Laurent last year, all eyes have been on the brand to see how their image will be shaped and affect the product of their designs. When all is said and done, it has to come down to the clothes, and the fall 2013 Saint Laurent runway delivered during Paris Fashion Week. Going for a chic-meets-grunge feel, Saint Laurent featured plenty of leather, embellished dresses, patterned tights, floral, and flannel for unexpected combinations of textures and patterns. Described as “Grunge Nouvea”, the Saint Laurent collection highlighted mixing and matching unanticipated styles together, and definitely had a younger, more modern feel than the past runway shows that YSL has delivered. While the runway featured edgy and playful looks for fall, we can’t help wonder if the classic, modern designs that were associated with YSL are gone along with the name.

What do you think of Saint Laurent’s fall line?
