If you know me, you know my infinite passion, respect, and obsession with runway fashion. I consider all fashion art, but runway is much more extravagant. It gives the designer a chance to create their vision to the absolute extreme, regardless of judgement. In Runway Review, I'll reveal my favorite collections and opinions on what trends you'll see in upcoming seasons.
This edition is the newest of fashion, Fall 2012 Runway. It's weird to think that designers are already done with their fall collections while we just put the pea coats and Uggs away, but that's fashion; always 6 months ahead of us.

Blumarine is a gorgeous, flashy collection.
I dig the way she perfectly balances femme fatale and high fashion, creating a clean-grungy hybrid of couture. Anna touched base with patterns, but highlighted color schemes. When fall rolls around, metallic and electric colors will be the spotlight of ensembles.

Ah, the most classy and purest form of fashion; Lacoste. The best part about Lacoste is the inability to do wrong, it always looks put together and clean. The fall line looks fresh as always, but what stands out is layering & the variety of men's wear sweaters/blazers; practical, perfect.
Lacoste Leader: Felipe Oliveira Baptista
Two words: Hell. Yes.
I'm dying over this collection. Lanvin constantly works it out, but this is haute couture, slightly refined. Nothing excites the audience more than an over the top, bump the line of extremes collection of color and bold accessories. I'm sensing a water color pallet of colors this fall; a nice change from the redundant red, brown, orange color scheme.

Seeing a little girly pink, white, and taupe is just what fall needs. Sometimes collections become uber-edgy and lose the feminine appeal to showcasing a women's delicate body. Jil Sander does a fabulous job flattering as opposed to flaunting. Fall entails vintage shapes, cinched waistlines and a continuing trend of high waist bottoms.
Detailed Designer: Jil Sander
Pucci has always been known as king of casual couture;
This collection definitely proves it. Edgy cut outs, pantsuits, dresses, and sheer blouses were featured in this runway line, predicting a very practical yet fashionable fall.

My mind is always in summer-mode, but at least we have some very stylish, iconic collections to look forward to. Now go rock your spring/summer styles while they're still in!
