Pre-Fall Review: The Big Names (Part 1)

What's on offer this pre-fall season from all the big brands we know and trust (part 1).

 Thinking of the Duchess of Windsor (Wallis Simpson), John Galliano built his entire collection on looks that would've taken her from day to night.
It also looked as though Dior was inspired by Chanel's idea of suiting this season.
Any woman would look chic and luxurious in this skirt-suit and matching bag ensemble.
Fedora optional.

Brand: Christian Dior
Designer: John Galliano
Model: Alina Baikova

Pre-Fall 2011 at Louis Vuitton was very reminiscent of Bourgeois textiles, particularly from the 1920s/30s.
Marc Jacobs chose to showcasee the allure of deep cherry purple offset by peachy orange in many looks.
The winter colour wheel at its best.

Brand: Louis Vuitton
Designer: Marc Jacobs
Models: Olga Sherer and Julia Saner

 Zac Posen's Pre-Fall 2011 collection, where he injected neoclassical & romantic spirit into each design, was primarily inspired by French interior designer Madeleine Castaing.
To give this stunning cocktail dress justice, I would pair it with some gold jewellery, killer heels, and an up-do of some sort - now imagine wearing it to your next evening soiree!
Side note: crushing on Leigh Lazark as a model!!

Brand & Designer: Zac Posen
Model: Leigh Lazark

Two simple and stylish ways to wear a tan trench coat in winter.
Notice how both include gloves and pointy shoes - translation?
Accessories are all we want to see this season!

Brand: Bally
Designers: Graeme Fidler and Michael Herz
Models: Daria Strokous and Julia Saner
