"Why do designers have them when Fall is already gone and we're into winter?"
This then lead into a conversation about how this was for Fall 2013 ["Why are they showing that now rather than summer? That makes no sense!" he declares], but we finally concluded to leave him perplexed and to enjoy the new lines that are popping up in our social feeds. Pitti Uomo is underway [check out some street style snaps here and style.com's report here], so he should be fine.
EITHER WAY, I have been really digging a lot of the Pre-Fall lines that are coming out, but the one that especially caught my eye was CARVEN:
There is just NO WAY I could pick a favorite look! The structured jackets [how perfect is the blue one right above? I want this for winter right now gawddamnit], the intricate lace layers,
the pop of a colored pattern meshed against a textured jacket.....I think Harper's Bazaar US described it best when they stated that the Pre-Fall Carven girl could be an 'art school student.' I think what I like best is the fact that Guillaume Henry purposely made some quirky decisions that still make the overall look so chic. The disproportionate jacket over the slimming skirt suit, for instance, or the sandals with thick ribbed tights.
If only I were rich, this entire collection would be in my possession. Check out more amazing-ness after the jump!
Truly freaking amazing.
