Due to a somewhat packed schedule, I’m just now catching up with NY fashion week and all the fall 2011 goodies to come. It seems so premature doesn’t it? I mean, the fall season doesn’t actually start until September 23rd, but that’s the fashion industry for you: one step (or season) ahead of the crowd. Renowned denim icon, G-Star, introduced their fall 2o11 collection on February 12th and it’s clear that the looks are meant for a winter wonderland. Check out the runway highlights below, especially the reinvented “fanny” pack at the 0:39 – 0:43 second mark (somewhat Laura Croft-ish, but would be really convenient at a club, I’d imagine.)
These are my fave womens and mens pieces in the collection:
1) Cropped puffy collar jacket and sheer top
I love this look for the bad-ass popped collar look and the sheer blouse which tip-toes the line between posh and naughty. Such a sweet contrast!
2) Sleeveless Coat
It’s a coat, it’s a dress, it’s hiding your birthday suit! Joking aside, this is definitely an unexpected look that I can see working its way into a signature closet item. Use it to layer in the chilly winter months (though in California that’s kinda a long shot,) or let yourself be risqué and wear it as a stand-alone piece.
3) East-coast swagger
This outfit exudes metropolitan GQ with its twist on the classic turtleneck and casually-styled coat. I’m wavering a bit on the shoes, but the red gloves I can definitely appreciate.
