Straight From the Runway

Our favorite runway picks are starting to trickle in, and they might even be better in store than they were in the showrooms. From Cushnie et Ochs to Stella McCartney, Celine, Libertine and many more, it’s almost overwhelming the amount of great things currently in store. Get a leg up on fall with pieces straight from the runway here.

Fall '15 Designer Collections

Fresh Neutrals

Consider that no white after Labor Day a rule of the past. This season designers are offering the dreamiest leather pieces and luxurious knits in my favorite creamy hue. It feels really fresh for fall and perfect for that in between seasons transitioning period. The below is from The Row and shoes are Manolo Blahnik.

All Off White Everything

Off White c/o Virgil Abloh’s Fall/Winter 15 collection has just arrived and I’m extremely excited about the new varsity inspired jackets and hats. The varsity jacket with signature bold white stripes is just plain ol’ cool and the wide brim hats are unlike any other. They’re very hard, in a comfortable way, so they won’t flop or lose their shape. They’re also made out of felted rabbit fur which is pretty random, but also pretty cool. Shop the look by clicking the images below, or check out our entire Off White c/o Virgil Abloh selection here or in store.

Modern Military

Military inspired clothing has surpassed the test of time and become more than just a trend for many designers. As a big fan of military green and pretty much anything cargo, to see designers reimagining the style and making it still feel fresh is like music to my ears. When you think about military styled clothing, you probably don’t think about fine knits and skirts first, but at glance of the below outfit, the inspiration behind it is pretty clear.

ALEXANDER WANG

I’m obsessed with this Altuzarra knit and Alexander Wang skirt, even more so paired together. I would have typically chosen a more neutral shoe to wear, but for some reason I couldn’t get these Sophia Websters out of my head. I thought it might be one of those things that sounds good in theory but doesn’t actually pan out in real life, but I was wrong.

Miscellanously Strange Garments that are Really Cool

_65A0300

So when we first saw this piece during market, we were all pretty confused. It piqued interest, but was it just because we had no idea what it was? There is definitely no hanger appeal here. Are they suspenders? Is it an apron? As a model showed us, it’s actually a little bit of both! And really cool!

These suspenders cum apron kind of epitomize 3.1 Phillip Lim’s fall collection – assymetrical hems, d-rings, and long straps that serve no visible purpose but still look really cool. This full look is by 3.1 Phillip Lim (shoes are Tabitha Simmons), but I’m thinking this suspender/apron/very revealing skirt could also look really cool over a plain black slip-like dress or with high-waisted shorts, pants, or pencil skirt. Basically anything that would lay flat under it and meet at the same point the straps meet the waist. Shop it in store or now or by clicking on the image above.
