Celine Fall 2013- Runway Translation

“Really elegant but weird; almost nerdy but perverse.”
~ Photographer Juergen Teller describing the Celine Fall Collection

Celine Fall 2013

My top three looks from the Celine Fall Collection had several key elements in common.  If you’re a fan of the simple, elegant, mid-century modern made contemporary looks above, and you’d like to give it a go, be sure to include the following elements in your ensemble:

Color- Soft and monochromatic.  Top and skirt should be solid and matching in color.
Texture- Every piece should want to make you touch it!  Go for wooly, cozy, furry, etc.
Shape- Boxy on top with a fit & flare skirt that falls below the knee.
Booties- Find one that hits below the mid-calf and fits like a second skin.

Tory Burch Fall 2013- Runway to Reality…

Tory Burch Fall 2013 Runway Cluster

Inspired by the works of artists Gustav Klimt and Rene’ Lalique, Tory Burch’s Fall collection is filled with rich textures and special details.  With a palette of Art Nouveau florals and sensual velvets, Burch paints a fairy tale suffused with gilded romanticism.  If the layering combinations are too opulent for your everyday style, try keeping it simple by pairing one powerful printed piece with complimentary solids and muted neutrals…
