A couple of Pre-Fall 2012 (whatever that means; I don't understand fashion seasons) collections caught my eye: Erdem and Louis Vuitton. (All the photos here via Fashionologie.com.)
The Erdem collection is full of amazing printed coats, floral prints, and the color orange. My favorite thing, though, is this first look. That skirt slays me.
The Vuitton collection also has some great prints--plaid and florals, but more abstract floral. It also uses a lot of fur accents--collars, cuffs, bizarre shoe thingies--which I like (well, not the shoe thingies so much), but I hope they're not using real fur. It's Vuitton, so they probably are...? But in this day and age, I'd hope it's faux fur. I love fur collars, but vintage or faux, please. Anyway, I kind of half love, half hate this first look--love the sparkles, the fur collar, the tiered skirt. Not wild about the hat. Not sure if this is a hot mess, or a wonderful hot mess. It's kind of that socialite gone mad look, Little Edie for the 2010s, so I guess I'll go with: love it.
