Paris Fashion Week | Yohji Yamamoto Spring/Summer 2012

We’re really digging the print’s in Yohji Yamamoto’s Spring 2012 collection as stripes and polka dots are pinned against florals and several other shapes to give the pieces some character and definition. There’s much to appreciate from Yohji’s collection this time around like patterned knits and Nehru-collared button-downs as well as the form-fitting outerwear, silk tops and traditionally-printed trousers.

Paris Fashion Week | Valentino Spring/Summer 2012

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli deliver arguably one of the best collections from this week’s Paris Fashion Week in Valentino’s Spring 2012 lineup. The pieces are well-cut and offer up some wonderful detailing that’s luxurious but wearable at the same time. Look for military and safari jackets, K-Ways and camp shirts, cargo shorts and hooded parkas but these pieces shouldn’t be mistaken for anything you’ll find at your local army surplus shop. It all comes down to details, folks, and you’ll notice it throughout the collection. For example, the featherlight unlined chambray blazers are woven through with silk to catch the light and the parka’s plaid is patchwork, not print.

Another tremendous showing at this year’s Paris Fashion Week was from Junya Watanabe as the designer showcased a Spring 2012 collection inspired by a weekend in the British countryside. The styling’s as quirky as you’d expect from the designer as he delivers colorful overalls, cropped trousers and waxed hunting jackets in several finishes and much more. (via GQ)

With Paris Fashion Week fully underway, what better way to kick things off than by showing you Adam Kimmel‘s Fall 2011 presentation. Honestly, I don’t know where to start as this line really looks stunning and the styling is well done and will definitely shows the team’s creative spirit. The line has an outdoorsy appeal to it and drops a handful of wearable pieces like an olive peacoat and a well-cut suit made from warm fabrics.

Milan Fashion Week | Versace Fall/Winter 2011

Milan Fashion Week | Versace Fall/Winter 2011

Versace‘s Fall 2011 collection looked great on the runway at Paris. The show reminds us what makes Donatella’s work so appreciated in the industry. The fall line is really well curated as it’s filled with plenty of suiting, each piece as precisely cut as the one before it. We’re seeing a lot of labels honing in on a color two and utilizing that finish in just about every piece they dish out and though most of Versace’s fall collection is fairly neutral, we dig the color infusion via accessories such as neckwear and gloves.
