On the Runway: Fall 2009

I really like autumn/winter, everything is layered and dark and slightily gothic and rock and roll, all wrapped up into one. Here are some of the collections I really like this year.

Okay, so Balmain is always a favourite, and this year I'm lusting after these blazers with the statement shoulders. Whether they're leather, or sequined or just plain blazers, they're structure is amazing and they add something different to the masculine blazers which we're seeing all over the runway. There's also something futuristic about them....

Hmm, fur. I love love love all the massive fur jackets (yeti jackets) on the runways. I mean come, they look super toasty and you'll never worry about being cold again, AND they're sure to make your legs look pin like. What could be better? In the Sonia Rykiel collection, there's loads of bold colours being injected into the black outfits, as well as bold patterns. The coral fur jacket is amazing, I really like the shape of the collar, and look at the platforms...!!!!

This is the Burberry Prorsum menswear collection. Wouldn't you fall in love with any of these beautiful boys? Just look at them, there's that hint of roughness with the flatcaps and the greatcoats and leather, they could have come straight out of the Industrial Revolution or something. But then there's that sense of gentlemanlyness and sophistication too, the velvet blazers, fitted jackets and trousers, dress shirts. The refinement is all there.

The Louis Vuitton collection was great. Bunny ears, leather, sky high thigh boots, statement jewellery, great structured peices....what more do you want? Note the injections of colours too, not everything has to be about black black black!

So the Stella McCartney collection was pretty sombre and tailored this fall. But you've got to love the long blazers, especially in that red colour, and their masculinity contrasts nicely with the leather leggings.
