I love Paris. I love New York. I Love Malandrino!  Yes I fell in love with Catherine Malandrino again.  This time it was the  Autumn/Winter Ready to Wear 2011-12 collection that gave me ‘butterflies‘. It mixed fishnet dresses and pantsuits with furs and leather. She even included a dazzling skirt made out of mirror shards. Fascinating!  Her signature floor sweeping gowns in bold colors completed the collection. The looks were accessorized with men’s fedora hats, square frame glasses and oversized totes that proclaimed love for Paris and New York.  View my fav looks below.  To view the complete collection click here

Rachel Roy RTW AW2011

Rachel Roy SERVES! us again with her Autumn Winter 2011 Ready to Wear collection.  In this collection Rachel focuses on color and patterns to create mix and match looks that are made for layering, layering, and more layering.  The end result is a full line of casual yet feminine designs that are sure to satisfy even the most eclectic tastes.

 
“the Rachel Roy collection has a decisively exotic flavour. It’s an exoticism that mixes a taste for vivid, typically African colours with styles and shapes that lead you back, instead, to Eastern Europe. Many tricot wool sweaters, also in fantasy themes, put together with heavy tweed, wool ponchos, full-circle skirts, floral print dresses, and woolen cloth jackets fitted at the waist by belts. Embellishing the overall look are touches of soft Mongolian fur, calf-length pants that are full at the hips, masculine suits, and suede wrap dresses”  -Vogue
