Chloé FW13

Chloé Fall 2013Clare Waight Keller has created a very Chloé-ish collection for this fall. I really am fond of the current Spring and Summer 2013 collection and had high hopes on this one, and she delivered. As always, a lot of Chloé-ish details, like the ruffled details on the sleeves, the skirts and dresses as well as the waisted belts that creates that beautiful Chloé silhouette.

Proenza Schouler FW13

Proenza Schouler Fall Winter 2013 white jacketThere has been a lot of black and white graphics at New York Fashion Week this season, and Proenza Schouler is no exception. The exccentric duo behind the brand, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, has been working with tweed bouclé (with implemented leather) and guipure lace in this collection, a more sophisticated side that hasn’t been seen before. We could spot a lot of laser-cut details in the collection, both dresses and shoes. One laser-cut material looked like a fusion between leopard and hearts and made a beautiful pattern – a pattern that also was printed on the leather clutches in the model ‘The Large Lunch Bag’ (love the name). For this collection they have implemented fur details in the bags – we could spot shearling and black pony-hair (again!) that created a lovely combination between the coat and bag. There was one piece that was just absolutely amazing and that was the chain dress with hundreds of thin threaded chains all worked together in modern armour. Over all the collection was amazing and I love the idea of a slight more sophisticated vibe over Proenza Schouler but still remaining the playfullness and the utterly cool looks.

A coat

I really want, and need, a more dressed-up coat for fall (and soon to be winter). I am looking for a classic model with a deep front and with double-breasted buttons. These three above are coats that I would consider, great pieces!
