It's finally warming up here in Boston and I've been slowly
So you can imagine how confusing it is when I spy a lookbook I love and discover it's for FALL?!?!?!?! It wasn't a serious'boom goes the dynamite' moment, but I'm sure as hell not looking forward to colder days.
Regardless when I saw these fitted jackets, intricate pleating, and SO MUCH LACE I just had to learn more:
This is the Fall/Winter collection for Sarah Baadarani, a London designer who has only been putting out collections for 3 cycles. Can you believe it? If I didn't know that I'd say she had been around way longer than that.
I personally love what it says on her website to describe her aesthetic:
[She] is built on the twin pillars of wearability and effortlessly chic, SB's signature creates a modern classicism, which in turn is distinctive and timeless. The essence is strong, sensual and feminine, and gives a powerful edge to elegance. A new interpretation for shape and tailoring is born with a fresh balance created by the play between hard and soft elements. A restrained romanticism.
I totally agree, especially seeing the play on soft lace completed with the sharp edges of the wool jackets. All complimented with the lush fur, and the pops of color. There's some red leather gloves that I am craving.
Check out the rest of the collection below, and while I hope you enjoy it PLEASE DON'T ASK FOR FALL TO COME EARLY. I BEG OF YOU.
