thanks to geri of because i’m addicted, we are now able to bask in the glory of jennifer fisher's fall 2014 collection. and it truly is glorious — rather than write a hefty paragraph about the simple, modern shapes and how easy it seems to layer them, i’ll let you enjoy the images above. start saving your pennies, ladies!
in news of awesomeness, fashionista recently highlighted tanya taylor's fun take on the classic lookbook. with the help of mixed media artist kalen hollomon, the designer took a ‘flat stanley’ approach by using cutouts of models donning her upcoming (first ever!) resort collection and “placed” them around manhattan. the result is both cheeky and realistic, showing how taylor’s clothes could really be worn on the street.
madewell never fails to produce fashion porn in the form of its seasonal lookbooks and fall 2014 is no exception, though it isn’t as texture heavy; it lacks a bit of ’je ne sais quoi,’ which i’ve grown to love from the brand’s signature layered looks. nevertheless, the neutral color palette is incredibly wearable (of course) and shapes flattering (obviously). don’t let my slight disappointment in those pre-made compilations prevent you from buying everything because it certainly won’t for me; in the end, personal style and individual styling is truly in the talent of the beholder.
it’s not fall; it is definitely not fall. nevertheless, all the autumnal lookbooks are being released to give you ample time to prepare, including that of asos and (if i do say so) i am digging it. the e-boutique has a wide range of items planned for the cooler season including slip-on sneakers, beanies, and plaid — all of which have solidified themselves as major trends this year.
perfectly in tune with the season, mayflower supply has revealed its spring 2014 lookbook, which features a minimal color palette with classic warm weather fabrics like linen, denim, and cotton. the vintage e-shop has also begun carrying complementary non-vintage items from winden (jewelry) and kertis (leather goods). while the collection is live, fans of the site are encouraged to sign up for its mailing list to get first dibs on stock as it becomes available.
i can’t get enough of marimekko prints, particularly on the ugly day we’ve got going on in nyc today. thus, the finnish design company’s fall 2014 lookbook couldn’t come soon enough, though we are certainly not ready to prepare for an autumnal wardrobe. nevertheless, feel free to bask in the glory of these patterns in the meantime.
gap's summer 2014 collection is here and if you are a big fan of white and pastels and are fully stocked with bleach, then these are the clothes for you. according to the brand, the line-up “celebrates the american summer experience with a focus on denim divided into three key themes: indigo, pastel, and white,” all of which are classic, simple, and very old-school gap. this is the brand we’ve grown to know and love and i am psyched that it is back (thanks to rebekka bay? you go, girl).
though we are nowhere near the autumnal season, h by hudson felt it was the ideal time to reveal its fall 2014 lookbook. i’m not judging or anything, mainly because the boots are amazing and need to be on my feet at their earliest convenience. also, if you’re going for a ‘grunge’ look this summer, it is totally normal to pair ankle boots with a white sundress; ergo, highlighting these images isn’t altogether inapprop.
in my e-travels, i recently stumbled across the talent of label dolores haze. overall, the designs are fairly understated, but i was particularly drawn to how they were styled; the simplicity of the clothing mixed with the grunge-ish hair and makeup on the models create an intriguing result. what’s more is that the fall 2014 collection was fair trade featuring sourced textiles from small business owners overseas.
when it comes to personal style, i prefer to go ‘minimalist’; you can’t really lose since it tends to feature a whole lotta neutrals and simple shapes, both of which are perfect for layering, if you’re down with that then the emerson fryspring 2014 collection is right up your alley, don’t you think? yeah, i thought so. bye, bye, paycheck!
