Inspired by English tailoring and Indian textile, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville artfully carried out next season’s recurring theme of mixing patterns, colors, and textures into their fall collection for Rag & Bone. Asymmetrical skirts, pants, sweater dresses, vests, and outerwear, in the form of prints, fur, leather, jacquard and herringbone, were layered to perfection. I’m especially digging the exaggerated leather epaulets and leather trimmed blanket coats!
We’re completely charmed by Bernadette Pascua‘s pencil and watercolor illustrations. Her work has been published in numerous magazines such as W, Vogue, and Glamour and soon, she will be launching an online shop selling her prints. I, for one, can’t wait to finally adorn one of my walls with her work. But in the meantime, I’ll continue to be inspired by her beautiful blog, Decade Diary . . .
As you should all know by now, we are both ridiculously obsessed with Instagram. But there’s no need to feel left out if you have yet to succumb to this highly addictive app (don’t say we didn’t warn you) – you can now experience our daily escapades via a live stream right here on HonestlyWTF. Come join us on our New York Fashion Week adventure!
How lucky is Susie, of Style Bubble, to have been one of the few people invited to visit Louis Vuitton‘s original workshop in the Parisian suburb of Asnières? From 1859 to 1977, the Asnières workshop was Vuitton’s sole production facility and two adjacent homes were where generations of the Vuitton family resided. So fascinating, right?! In addition to all the luxurious vintage trunks, I’m smitten with the gorgeous Art Nouveau details, from one of my favorite periods in decorative art and history. Be sure to check out the rest of Susie’s tour and a peek inside the atelier as it functions today.
Deconstructed jackets over finely knit sweaters on top of quilt printed dresses, all layered over two-tone, textured leg wear . . . Gary Graham‘s fall collection oddly makes perfect sense, and thus provides me with fresh layering inspiration. I’m also loving the use of burgundy, grey, rust, and bright red, a color palette common to other fall collections we’re seeing on the runways. Swoon!
