Rodarte Fall 2012

Kate and Laura Mulleavy have done it again with another flawlessly romantic collection, this time influenced by the Australian Outback. 40s inspired silhouettes, crystal studded gowns, coats cinched with western belts, dresses in Aboriginal dotted prints, cargo pants and cabled sweaters had us dreaming of a land down under. But what stood to us the most were the delightful accessories: clustered star hair pieces, embroidered lace collars, and sand-filled plexiglass heels. Dreamy!!


Tsingy de Bemaraha

How breathtaking are these limestone formations in Tsingy de Bemaraha, a natural reserve on the western coast of Madagascar? The area was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1990 due to the unique geography, preserved mangrove forests, and wild bird and lemur populations. Honestly, WTF. I desperately need to see this in person.


Tibi Fall 2012

Inspired by the era of The Beatles (pre-breakup), Amy Smilovic added a 90s twist to her fall collection for Tibi. Rich textures in deep, dark colors like emerald green, cobalt blue, and burgundy took shape in structured coats, cropped menswear suits, slouchy sweaters, turtlenecks layered under dresses, and pencil skirts. Dresses and blouses in cream fabrics and delicate bird prints added femininity and grace. The makeup and hair was strong but effortless with teased ponytails, full brows, dewy cheeks, matte lips and opaque white nails. All in all, it was just how we like it: understated, simple, and fabulous.
