Yves Saint Laurent
If you've watched "The September Issue" you know that Stefano Pilati feels for colors in Spring, so here we have a black (and sometimes white or grey) collection for Fall. Not the most cheerful colors, but still beautiful clothes.
It is always interesting for me to look at what Zac is doing because it is always something different from everybody else, even different from himself, but still it is stylish and beautiful. This collection seemed to be quite theatrical for me and curious to watch.

I miss Mr. Valentino, I can't help it... He was and is one of my favorite designers of all times and I greatly miss his incredible fashion creations. However, the duo of Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli made quite good ready-to-wear collection (they couture collection was marvelous). I've picked several looks as the best for me. Coats are just great. I must say that I like this team of designers better than Alessandra Facchinetti, who was the first to replace Valentino after he left his place.
I loved so many looks from Versace! The blue-ish dresses are the best!
I must admit I liked Victoria's first collection better than this one. But we have several good dresses here too.
Viktor & Rolf
Viktor and Rolf are a very creative duet and personally for me their creations are not always really wearable, but still they are very interesting to look at. And I've picked a good coat and an interesting party dress from Fall collection.

I've sensed East in this collection by Alice Temperley - several looks reminded me of an origami maybe or something form India (like harem pants). I am not a big fan of it though, so I've chosen these quite neutral looks. They have a bit agressive shapes and I like it - that clothes give you a certain mood as you put it on.
I am so pleased to see how good asian designers are at making dresses! Both day and evening wear - they cut them so accurate - they always fit right and hug you in the right places. Thakoon is one of the youngest, but he has a great potential and I am looking forward for more of his creations.
This brand is new to me and what I like about it is its freshness and youth, the simplicity they make their clothes with - you don't need to over think about how to wear this dress or that jacket - you just put it on and go and feel comfortable.
For me Tommy Hilfiger is a truly american brand, it is some sort of synonims for me - Tommy and the States. I like what hi is doing - it is a clothes of a very good quality and great fabrics.
I am falling in love with Tory more and more. She has this certain something in her style that just clicks with mine. About these looks: I really like the 1st dress, I think the print is great; I love the fur vest in the 2nd look and how it is paired with the skirt; I like the interesting detail of the 3rd dress - this block on the front of the dress that usually is at the back of the coats; I like the color and the shape of the 4th dress + those little gloves look good here (you know there always is a problem with these little gloves - they can look tacky so easily, but here they fit very good); and the 5th dress is a gorgeous gown for the night.
This collection was different from many others - it didn't follow the main trends that much, but still it was interesting to watch. About the looks: I think that everyone should have a classic black jacket they can wear everywhere, but then - when you have one - it is good to have an interesting, not that simple one (like the 1st one here); I like the combination of the knitted cardigan and a fur wrap on the 2nd look; 3rd dress has an interesting eye-catching print; 4th is very girlish and good for a party; and 5th has this amazing rosette detail on the bodice which I simply adore.
That collection by Cristina Ortiz was very elegant and sort of old Hollywood, and I really enjoyed it. I like the shapes and the drapings and the fur sleeves and most of all the color of the last dress - fabulous!
Cheerful as always at Sonia Rykiel. Interesting idea of big ruffles on the coat and jacket. And very funky sparkling jumpsuit.
Seems to be a lot of rock-inspired looks this season. These manage to be feminine at the same time.
Stella McCartney was one of my most favourite show this season. I love each look here, they are super-cool, great jackets.

Divine suits from Ralph Lauren
Flawless dresses, exquisite!
Interesting dresses, this designer is new to me, but I'll keep an eye on him.
What an interesing mix of daywear and lingerie, don't you think? This whole collection was full of clothes with lingerie elements. Sometimes it was a bit odd, but some looks (like the above) are quite nice.
This was a dark and rock collection by Roberto Cavalli. I don't like too much black and I don't fully get the idea of layered multiple skirts, but I think it was interesting.
When I watched the show I've found a lot more interesting dresses by RM than everyone is wearing. My most favourite is the pale violet (3rd one), in so gorgeous.

I like the sophistication of Peter Som's clothes, it tends to be classy, but still isn't boring - a perfect balance.
Nordic, darker looks here at Phi. Cant' say I liked the whole collection, but these looks are interesting and wearable.
There were some horrible boots and shoes at Prada this season - honestly, sometimes I think that some designers are simply kidding us - I mean how on earth can you wear that mess?
But then again, there were several interesting fresh ideas, which I am showing here.
Such a sexy dresses! Love them, simply adore the cuts.
Pringle of Scotland
The first part of the show was full of very cosy and comfortable clothes, whereas the second part showed some evening wear. You can see my favorite looks here.

Oscar de la Renta
Oscar de la Renta is maestro in gorgeous clothes ladies of all ages desire to wear, and I am among them. He produces both elegant day wear (as seen above 1, 2 and 3rd looks and in the 3rd look below) and simply fabulous evening wear (as seen on the 4th look above and 1, 2 and 4th looks below). Those dresses are chic and timelessly beautiful. Love them!
It was an amazing collection, I totally fell in love with it. So many exquisite gowns, it was hard to pick the best!
The dresses are fairy and the vest+skirt look is perfect for a weekend day out.
Some nice dresses by Nicole Miller.
First one is good for day, second and third are perfect for a coctail.
This Nina Ricci colleciton was the last by Olivier Theyskens and he definitely made it unforgettable - look at those shoes at least! It was dark, powerful and sexy, I loved it.

It was neon-eighties at Marc Jacobs this season. There were party dresses in metallic leathers, full skirts, big shoulders, hooded coats and capes. Crazy! I tried to pick the looks you could wear straight from the runway.
Amazing collection, Georgina Chapman is one of the best in creating fairytale red carpet gowns.
I am in LOVE with the purple coat, it is so beautiful, it drives me crazy!
Electric prints and colors were seen at the Marios Schwab's show. Interesting cuts, shapes and prints, fantastic tailoring - it was a pleasure to watch.
The pink dress is my favourite.
Going through this collection I came up with the result that I liked mostly pink clothes here, which is unlike me - I am usually quite sceptic and indifferent for pink. But here the shade is perfect (on the model at least) and I love the shapes of clothes.
Matthew was full of colour - as usual. It looks like it's not fall at all here :) I like that optimism, however not so many numbers you can wear in this time of year in my region. But still - great show, lots of bright emotions.
I didn't quite like the whole lace and layering idea here at Max Azria (there were a lot of controversial looks for me), but I think these 2 looks are interesting and edgy.
Max Mara had clean and simple silhouette (sometimes too plain). I can't say that I'm a fan of this brand, their clothes are not interesting enough for me most of the time, but I like the idea of wearing fur over coat, and the pant suit is nice.
Somehow I almost excluded color from my fave Kors' looks (there was plenty of it actually). I don't know why - I guess it's just that these black pieces are more interesting for me.
And the pink dress is fabulous!
The navy pant suit is very cute, the 2nd look funky and reminds me of cartoons, and I absolutely like 3rd dress with an interesting embellishment on the front and the 4th jacket - also for it's embellishments, very rocky!
Moschino Cheap & Chic
I like the 1st dress for the color and the curious idea of wearing a belt; the color of the coat is so refreshing for this time of the year; and the 3rd look is good for going out.
