A Note About Pre-Fall 2011
Every so often my heart palpitates as I revisit an on-going nightmare: what if I run out of MR material? But then Style.com comes to my rescue and showcases the most recent collections. Yesterday, Pre-Fall put my fears to rest for but another season. It’s like my favorite designers are crafting with me in mind. I guess my telekinetic powers are finally working.
Below, find my favorite from the Pre-Fall collections that hit Style.com yesterday.
Kidding! Tricked ya sucka! It would be very unbecoming of a woman who calls herself The Man Repeller to list a bodycon mini dress as her source of broom-cracking inspiration. Though I will admit I’m partial toward the navy/black leather combination present here.
Yesterday, Proenza Schouler’s tie-dye knickers on steroids almost threw me into a coma.
True, they’re not photographed here, but look at the sublime print mixing!
Perfect to you, incomprehensible to the average male specimen. Which makes them all the better. These images also suggest that I may have to neglect my yeshiva complex and jump on the duty train.
Celine’s denim-on-denim ensembles had Canadian Tuxedo consummates with Phoebe Philo, then goes for a jog written all over them.
And on a more metallic note:
Evidently, baby heels are here to stay. That aside though, I’d sell my organs on the black market for the sake of those pants and coat. I’m sorry to see there’s a dead animal coming out of the left model’s clutch, though. Talk about fashion road kill!
Chanel kicked it back old school, drawing inspiration from the 70s with an Amy Winehouse-inspired bee-hive flair:
Chanel kicked it back decades earlier with the final two looks, that took a cue from the Cleopatra era:
Good Passover dressing inspiration, if you know what I’m saying. Oh, you don’t? Moses, Pharaoh, eh? eh? Guess you had to be there. Yes it’s true, I saw that sea split with my own two dilated pupils!
Counterfunctionality was the name of 3.1 Phillip Lim’s game.
Because, you know, it’s warm enough to wear a lightweight pea coat, short-sleeves and mini skirts sans tights but damn you, if I don’t have my fur arm-warmers on I may die of hypothermia.
Finally, we look to Alexander no Wang, who dressed his models like Danny Zuko
…And didn’t bother to tailor said digs to fit their bodies!
Oh sweet mother of John Travolta, I can’t wait to own you.
