The Best of Herbst 2011 Couture

Everyone’s loving Gallic Aymeline Valade pictured in Chanel.  Is she worthy of the adulation or just an overrated flav of the month?

Chanel presented the collection with aggressively ugly and unflattering footwear.Tomas Maier presented another standout collection for Bottega Veneta.Oscar D served everything from slim suits to signature gowns.

FALL 2011 RTW: coats

We’re about half way through the fashion marathon folks.  Try and pace yourselves.  Viktor & Rolf showed an impressive collection of architectural pinwheel shapes. Think a coat discussion is irrelevant now?  These are the shapes for next year, betcha there are similar high-end clearance options still floating around.  Now is the time to find a steal.

Black, white, bold color, pastels, and even patterns – really, almost anything goes.   How magnificent is this Zac Posen full-length evening coat?

Don’t worry; trenches aren’t going anywhere.
