Favourite Fall Fashions

I'm English so according to my dad Fall, should not be in my vocabulary. However, as English as i am, I'm a sucker for alliteration so Autumn got the boot and Fall was in.
This post is about what i loved on the runways enough to be squishing it into my wardrobe over the coming weeks.

Sounds random but i loved the presence of thick woolen fabrics on the runways. Especially because a lot of them were used in tailoring. Wool is a long standing coat material but i love the eccentric English vibe of a thick tweed suit.

From Left to Right: 3.1 Phillip Lim, Marc Jacobs, Rag & Bone, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Vivienne Westwood Red Label, Dries Van Noten.

I've loved sheepskin since forever ago so seeing the Burberry Prorsum line was like pornography. It's everywhere on the high st. right now in both good and bad forms. In all honesty i don't know for sure if other lines used sheepskin, but Burberry's use of it was a smash hit so here is the holy grail of sheepskin jackets:

I'm a self confessed print-phobe. Or at least was. I'm loving florals and the different takes on them designers had. I'm totally a fool for embroidery too, it will be hard thing to work in though because I'm not sure i could pull off big embroidered pieces, I'm thinking accessories for that one.

From Left to Right: Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Erdem, Betsey Johnson, Etro, Diane von Furstenberg.

This has taken me so long to actually get done. I don't know that it's the best post ever. But the pictures are pretty : ) Remind me never to try and post and make a full roast dinner simultaneously ever again though, it's damn hard!

What stuff will you guys be working into your wardrobes for autumn? Have any designers inspired you to break out of your comfort zone or are you just sticking to old faithfuls?

Let me know!

Peace & Love.
