To get everyone excited for the Fall Winter 2010 shows we’ve got some designer sketches along with quotes on the inspiration behind the upcoming collections.
Rebecca Taylor says that her collection was inspired by “a mixture of 70’s Parisian attitude and an urban New York City girl. With a renewed love for classic sportswear, silhouettes have been re-worked with a twist to give subtle edge on signature feminine designs. The palette includes dusty hues and new neutrals, contrasted with military olives and hints of old gold. Fabrics are washed to provide a worn, overly-loved appeal and are combined with cashmere wool suits, leopard faux furs, and down quilted coats, giving this collection an affordable luxe quality.”
Tracy Reese remarked that “an eclectic mix of urban and rural style makes for a very modern yet infinitely wearable Fall 2010 collection. Rustic Prince of Wales checks, distressed faux fur, and stretch suede styles are softened by cosmetic toned lingerie and made cozy by soft alpaca sweaters.”
Milly’s Michelle Smith noted that for her collection “the artsy, chic girls of Paris’ Left Bank” were her inspiration, “in a combination of luxe fabrics, clever techniques, and cool attitude.”
Deasoned vet Elie Tahari remarked that his Fall 2010 collection “is homage to the great women who traveled the globe in style."
