The pre-fall 2011 collection from Alexander McQueen has us standing at attention with its military inspired pieces perfect for the battlefied that is fashion. McQueen designer Sarah Burton stayed with a restrained color palette of navy, black and red hues along with metal details which we also saw in the spring season. Luxe jackets and tailored bottoms were accompanied by above the knee dresses, offsetting the masculine influence with a feminine edge.
Versace steps into pre-fall 2011 with a collection of retro colors and patterns. Worn by Kasia Struss, the latest wears to come out of the Italian fashion house are more sleek than sexy, but it turns out change is good. Featuring deco-art patterns, animal prints and pops of bright color, the Versace woman looks as bold as ever!
Givenchy brings some color into pre-fall with an austere collection made for the fashion conscious. Continuing with its t motif and use of sheer materials, Givenchy presents a collection of contrast–severe looks and uninhibited glamour combine for a story of gradient hues and structured silhouettes.
