My picks from Pre-Fall 2012 Collections, part 2!

Images from  Back to my picks from the Pre-Fall collections!  I raved about SS2012 Theyskens’ Theory, and though I wouldn’t necessarily rave about this collection, I’m still a fan of the mix of textures, colours and the overall vibe of the collection – my favourite look would have to be the sequin jacket over the printed top and boyfriend jean shorts – casual yet so interesting!

Historically, I’m not a huge fan of Zac Posen, but these picks from his Pre-Fall collection are starting to make me want to see more!  When I see these pieces, I think of old Hollywood glamour, polished and ladylike.  My favourite piece has got to be the flirty black dress with the fluted sleeves and hem!I love the contrast in colours and fabrics between Phillip Lim’s SS2012 and Pre-Fall collections, a true “the nights are getting cooler, so let’s put on a slightly warmer jacket/blazer, but still show our bare legs” collection!  Jackets, blazers and separates were key features in his SS2012 collection, and PF2012 seems to incorporate the same idea of many different wearable pieces, all cohesive as a collection and all with interesting cuts, fabric or pop of colour! (I really like how he incorporated comic/graphic print t-shirts and bags into the collection.)Not as many designers produced Pre-Fall collection to pick favourites from, so that ends my Pre-Fall picks for 2012!  Can’t wait for the Fall 2012 shows!  Until then…

    • Thanks for your comment! I’m really liking what Olivier Theyskens is doing at Theory too! It feels young and fun, but still polished and put together! I think my favourite collection so far is the Spring 2012 RTW collection!

    I love the black Theyskens’ Theory shorts! And I agree – the outfit on the left looks super cozy and still chic. My favorite thing from Phillip Lim is the sparkly pants.

  3. Oooo yes those black Phillip Lim pants are so amazing! So versatile, they could be dressed up or down! Beautiful! Thanks for your comment Tatiana!
