Fall 2008 Highlights

It is and has been Fashion Week time every where I want to be over the past few weeks. Most of the Designers have their cards on the table after showing in New York, London and currently Milan. Whilst the clothes have been amazing, there are some serious shoes going on for Fall, many of them in bright, vibrant and traditionally Summery Colours.

Of particular interest Miu Miu's Sculptured Platforms in Yellow and Chloe's Peep Toe Suede & Python Indigo Ankle Boots.

Whilst some have used Colour to dress up what has been a predominantly Dark, Grey and Ombre Fall, Stella McCartney has used Textile and Construction to make things all the more interesting.

Not surprisingly Marc by Marc Jacobs has some of my favourite items Fall has to offer so far, in some of the most outrageous colours out. This Houndstooth Electric Green Shift being my favourite so far.

Sonia Rykel bought a myriad of Warm Tones into a mainly Black collection with this explosion of a Knit Dress.

Malene Birger went for a more Dramatic Autumn tone with Silks in vibrant Violet hues.

As did Moschino Cheap & Chic (which actually isn't all that cheap) Violet & Black Tiger Print Shift makes me actually long for Autumn, Black Tights and Sky High Heels. I love a good Purple so I'm really excited for next Autumn when these trends start to filter down to our Climate.

Another favourite was pretty much everything at Oscar De La Renta, 50's Cinched Waists (perfect for those with Hips), focus on amazing Silks, Emboridery and beautifully Structured dresses and skirts. Flattering, Classic and Elegant.

And at Temperley London, where the mood was much more Tough Mod with a lot of 'Wet Look' fabrics in Black and Dark Hues. For a $40 Fix try American Apparels' Lame Leggings in Black or Navy.

And again with Sculpture, Draping and Fit, Bottega Veneta articulate this amazing Silk Creation in Anthracite.

So this all seems so far away as I sit here in my Pencil Skirt and Singlet but the knowledge that by the time is gets cold here again, this will all be half price, keeps me warmer than the Hole in the Ozone layer above Melbourne.
