Inspiration For Next Year: 2012 Pre-Fall

Pour moi, this winter has been a bit of a let down. With Southern Hemispheric temperatures and snowfall, I was uninspired to whip together any sort of new winter wardrobe. However, with the unveiling of the Pre-Fall 2012 collections and the hope of a more wintery 2012 winter, I will start planning early this time around and not be left in a fashion rut. Here’s a preview of what’s to come next fall…

Let’s start with what hasn’t gotten a lot of play this year—coats! These three classy gals have a feminine and tailored vibe to them. Above left to right: Acne, Louis Vuitton, Balmain.

…while these three go for a more masculine and androgynous, yet still ever-so-sexy/quirky feel. Above left to right: Derek Lam, Theyskens’ Theory, Peter Som.

And fur really didn’t have a chance this year, did it? Problem solved! Here are a couple ways to wear a small amount of it, rather than an entire fur coat. Above left to right: Chloe, Thakoon and Marni.

Or if you juuuust want a touch of richness, fur collars were all over the place! I’m obsessed with the Marni version. Above left to right: Marni, Prabal Gurung, Sportmax.

And I couldn’t look at any collection without seeing this amazing crimson red. Get ready to go bold! Above left to right: Roksanda Ilincic, Sonia Rykiel, Giambattista Balli.

Or, if you are a little nervous to go all the way red, hitting up the pinks will do you well, too. Above left to right: No. 21, Thakoon, No. 21.

Or go the complete opposite, and be amazing in an all white ensemble. These three are paired with the crimson and fur trends. Above left to right: Roksanda Ilincic, Derek Lam, and Band of Outsiders.

Try a mix of masculine and feminine to keep your black and whites fresh. Above left to right: Peter Som, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Chloe.

These may look a little spring-y, but pre-fall delivers at the beginning of summer, which also doesn’t really make any sense…but, hey, that’s fashion! Above left to right: DKNY, Doo.Ri, Erdem.

Shifting prints to blues may feel a bit more fall, yes? Above left to right: Richard Nicoll, Preen, and Yigal Azrouel.

And last but certainly not least, everyone needs a lil glitz ‘n’ glamour in their life. These ladies will make sure you sparkle and shine brighter than the rest. Above from left to right: Valentino, Louis Vuitton, and Balmain.

Bring on Fall ’12!
