Finally, fashion week is back! First stop, Milan! I’m going to pick my favorite collections by my favorite designers over the coming weeks. I will feature the looks from each collection that I love and the pieces I need to bring into my closet.
First up, we have Dolce & Gabbana’s F/W 2012 collection. If you took the 1930’s and combined it with the Victorian era it would give birth to this collection. Between the newsboy caps and cropped pants, you feel the aire of the early 20th century. Add in the golden roped design on the cape-like coats and you easily spot the Victorian era. I’m not a huge fan of the the Victorian era-inspired pieces as I am with the 1930’s-inspired pieces.
I love that many shades of grey throughout the collection–this really goes without saying.
I really dig the fitted double-breasted wool coats. The charcoal grey looks extremely dignified and it easily matches my style.
Although the bag reminds me of a doctor’s bag from ‘Dr. Quinn the Medicine Woman,’ I know it would fit perfectly with any look. You could carry anything in it. If I can take something on the go and it can hold everything I need, I am happy.
Now, that I am finally embracing the bow tie, I am glad to see it’s sticking around for the fall. I’m not too late on the bandwagon. Now to master tying one…
I am so in love with the double-breasted jacket. Usually these jackets look british-soldier-esque, but I don’t get that vibe from this extremely structure jacket. I’m on the fence about the flair on the bottom, but I don’t mind it too much since I usually have to wear women’s jackets…
Who doesn’t love a good pair of wool pants (as long as they are lined)–especially in a shade of grey. Take on any cold weather while looking super chic.
