JUST POSTED! Fall 11 Ladies Runway Themes

In honor of my Seasonal F11/12 Runway Themes posting on Fashion Snoops this week, I wanted to share just a taste of my favorites, which also happen to be those HUGE, can’t miss references. But be sure to look on the site, where we feature a record 27 THEMES across Ladies and Juniors.


Fall 11: Aquiliano.Rimondi, Prada, Mulberry, Prada, Alberta Ferretti

First up is any and everything Mod 60s. As this season’s MAJOR decade of reference, we see the theme divide into several expressions. Above is the most traditional 60s look – which I also featured during runway season here – featuring shift dresses and color blocking. But that’s not all..

Burberry, Fall 11

Burberry featured a strong Mod Country approach, which blended the worlds of 60s and Wilderness (which also happened to be a major expression, remember all that fur?).

Balmain, Fall 11

And finally, with a glam rock Go Go Girl twist, Balmain shimmies down the runway with mini dresses and skirts disguised in metallic embellishment.


Fall 11: Isabel Marant, Isabel Marant, Pringle of Scotland, Isabel Marant, Chloe

Moving right along to all points South West, I LOVE the many different faces that this ethnic theme brings in; especially since it’s such a new direction after African for some time. Navajo patterns and crafted fringe are key.

Etro, Fall 11

Some of you may remember my post on Etro’s brilliant collection which embodies Native American inspiration with the most magnificent prints.

Proenza Schouler, Fall 11

And who could ever forget Proenza Schouler’s Santa Fe collection, complete with bold new pattern direction, not to forget those brilliant cobalt blue and orange accents.


Fall 11: Paul Smith, Dolce & Gabbana, Dolce & Gabbana, Paul Smith, Limi Feu

And last, but certainly not least, is the recurring – yet updated – Man’s World theme which applies across both the womenswear and junior markets. Don’t be fooled, this isn’t minimalist sportswear, although that does continue. Here we see a complete collection built upon those boy blazers to include separates like the man trouser, peg pant and more updated white shirts.

Salvatore Ferragamo, Fall 11

And for ladies, it doesn’t get better than Salvatore Ferragamo’s power house ladies in pinstriped suitings, not to forget those bell trousers which also inject newness to the menswear look.
