Fall in Summer

July 26, 2012

The summer has finally arrived, and in the midst of the hottest week so far, Vogue released their fall patterns. My first impression was: weird poses. No wonders, since almost all designer patterns were photographed with the models standing, or more precisely trying to stand on a windowsill:

Looking more closely, all models are also photographed standing in front of the window, so that the garments can be seen as they should. Three made it to my must-have list:

Vogue 1324 by Donna Karan:

Vogue 1317 by Chado Ralph Rucci, maybe a couple of inches longer:

Vogue 8827, a wrap dress with collar variations:

Some are on the “maybe” list, like Vogue 1314 by Tracy Reese, Vogue 1320 by Issey Miyake, Vogue 1323 by Rachel Comey and Vogue 1325 by Anne Klein.

I also noticed that color blocking is not out, though in more subdued colors:

What are your favorites?

    I also love the Rucci dress! I really like the Tracy Reese-dress (1314). I think I like the Donna Karan ensemble (1324) and I am more and more attracted to the Rebecca Taylor dress and the DKNY cape. So I might order some patterns on the next sale – maybe as a reward for using some patterns from my current stash 🙂
