I wanted to jump right into part 2 of our “What We Wear” series, covering all of our favorite runway shows for the coming Fall/Winter 2014/15 collections. So far we’ve been seeing a ton of reverse layering, leather, and fur is back in a HUGE way. It’s pretty interesting to see older, somewhat overdone looks given an entirely new and modern approach to current trends.
E. Tautz Fall/Winter 2014/15
I REALLY am digging the texture and pattern of this large overcoat. For a piece so big, it doesn’t seem overbearing at all. The monaco/navy-ish blue color is a perfect accent for this look. Do I spot some blue suede shoes?!
Lets get this straight, we would never be caught wearing this cropped biker, but it reminds us of the back in the day, logo all over, varsity jackets we used to wear in the hood, 5 sizes too big. Besides the ghetto reference, we really enjoy the amount of detail put into this jacket. Conversation piece for sure!
Burberry Prorsum Fall/Winter 2014/15
KILLER shearling bomber from Burberry, from the caramel shell to the slight drop shoulder and chest detail, we are going to see a lot of this next winter. Lets not forget the beautiful assortment of bags with enormous amount of detail and beautiful prints.
We aren’t crazy about this look but do love the lux mixture of patterns and super warm-looking throw blanket. And hey, WE WANT ALL THE BAGS.
Versace Fall/Winter 2014/15
Versace usually has us running for the hills and rappers running to their bank accounts, but the coming fall/winter collection is a welcome surprise with tons of leather, details and waxed garments added to their usual frills and bright accents. The helmets put us over the edge of “like” to “love” in addition to the leather(possible waxed cotton) jacket and jeans with black detail. A very subtle and slim look that screams, “I’m late to work, where’s my motorcycle?”
Yet another look that won us other with the addition of the motorcycle helmet to the beautiful bomber jacket and deep blue detailed jean.
This look won us over because the denim looks very fun and brings us back to better times in the 90’s(although we pre-caution anyone who thinks they’ll be able to pull off those jeans), in addition to the motorcycle embroidered onto the sweatshirt.
Neil Barrett Fall/Winter 2014/15
Neil Barrett had a ton of classics to choose from, but this leather jacket IS SO CRAZYY! The deep brown fading into a cognac suede top coat with waist belt detail is a piece that makes us re-do our finances. I wonder if we can start a second 401k to fund this? Hmmm
Bottega Veneta Fall/Winter 2014/15
The color palette is what really caught our eye on this particular look. The leather jacket is killer and all, but pulling off that high waist ribbing without looking like a female will be seriously hard for anyone under 6 foot, unless you possess swag like this guy that can pull off lux sweatpants equally well. ps- LUX SWEATPANTS ARE THE NEXT DRESS PANTS. smh.
Calvin Klein Fall/Winter 2014/15
CK really brought out some great color palettes for their coming fall/winter collection. I really was digging this pale blue jacket with a really high sheen that would go great as a layer underneath a top coat of jacket to add some serious pop to a look.
Absolutely KILLER bomber brown leather jacket. I would not be mad at all if designers keep re-introducing this leather, it’s both timeless and will make you feel like a WWII fighter pilot.
I think this is a good spot to end part 2. We’ve got a ton left to cover, so be sure to subscribe and check in later!
