Okay, Fall, Here I Come

Thursday, September 28, 2006

Nothing has put me more in the mood for fall than the Sartorialist's off-the-runway fashion show snaps on The big fall/winter trends are definitely quickly emerging – most noticeably, a dark, slim base layer topped with a slouchy jacket, cape or coverup. Lots of skinny dark legs and turtlenecks, lots of gray, beige and black. A very high thick heel or a very flat one. And if you must wear something bright and bold, it gets toned it down with a long sweater or neutral trench coat.

At first glance, it looks a little somber, but it also seems so effortless and simple. Gone are the piles of chunky beads, the poufy skirts, the dangling bag charms (thank God – we hated them anyway), the bright accessories, and the bows at the waist or the neck or the toe. The fashion industry actually looks comfortable, and that's kind of refreshing.

I started packing my suitcase yesterday for Tokyo and the U.S., and – besides my joy at finally being able to pull out some sweaters – I found myself gravitating towards some favorite neutrals: chunky gray knits, black leggings (of course), dark denim, plain extra-long-sleeved tees, my gray tuxedo jacket and my beloved trench-style Jamin Puech tote. Maybe it's because I've been wearing my bright vintage sundresses since January, but I've never been so excited to look at a pile of neutral-toned basics.

But don't worry, a few patterns and brights went into the suitcase too. I could never give up vintage prints completely – I think I just need a little vacation from them, is all.
