The Fashion Week series is finally coming to an end after nearly a month of shows and designers pulling out all the stops. I don’t usually talk too much about the shows because I feel a lot of that is over-written about and I’m not sure I have anything new or interesting to add to the discussion. On the other hand, I did find myself ohhing and ahhing over a number of things these past few weeks. In no particular order these are the things that caught my eye this time around….
- The Louis Vuitton train scene was a brilliant way to showcase the throw-back style. Every picture I saw from that show took my breath away. Can you imagine watching a train pull into a fashion tent? Epic! I’m also pretty sure I would be ok owning the whole collection. Seriously, do you think the popularity of Downton Abbey made the trends go more toward the structured sophistication for the feminine form?

- Leather. It’s still going to be in! Yay. I like the textured, slightly BA look of leather jackets and such. It’s a perennial I know, but I was glad to see it so highlighted again this year.
- Oxblood red. I’m a new convert to red and this subtle more blue-based hue is perfect for someone hesitant to commit to bright red shades. The color appeared down a number of runways and in a variety of clothing types. I’m looking forward to it hitting stores in a few months.

- Want to see what people were wearing to the tents? Lee Oliveira is my favorite street-style fashion photographer and he managed to capture some of the loveliest outfits and ladies over the last couple weeks. Like the shot below of the lovely Giovanna Battaglia.

Well those are the little things that stood out to me and made me excited for fall 2012. (Not too excited because I am really looking forward to warm weather and summer dresses.)
