It’s hard to get excited for Fall/Winter runway collections, when deep inside you can’t wait for the snow to clear and the sun to come out so you can pull out your denim shorts and flirty spring dresses. However, after seeing the runway collections from New York fashion week I can’t help but feel inspired.
Fall 2010 seems to continue the whole American Sportswear re-invented and military trend. Cozy knits, fabulous outerwear pieces in heavy wools and fur, and big comfortable pants took over the runways. Everything seemed so practical and wearable that I couldn’t help but wish I had it all to wear now and keep forever.
My favorite trend is piling on the chunky knits. This trend reminds me of the perfect ski weekend in Aspen but perfectly acceptable and comfortable for every day life. My favorite show that portrayed this trend was Rag and Bone. These two designers from Nashville totally get the whole Americana style. The mixture of textures and monochromatic tones worked perfectly together; mixture of stylish, comfortable, and cool. The designer’s inspiration for this collection was “crazy English guys who climbed Mount Everest in the twenties in tweed” and they nailed this perfectly.
