Fall 2010 Trends

Please support The Fat and Skinny Shop!
If you have been following the shows in New York, you have probably seen lots of leather, velvet, fur, menswear for women, and leggings.  New York is telling the world that those are the trends that are in for the fall. PETA will not be happy about this.  Two collections that used a bit of all of those elements were the Altuzarra and Alexander Wang collections. Photos from Style.com.
The Altuzarra collection had lots of leather, velvet, menswear influences. A lot of the pieces were very tight and structured. Some of the tuxedos and fur coats reminded me of Tom Ford’s run at Gucci  There was one catsuit that reminded me of Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman catsuit from Batman. Many of the leather pieces had stitching criss crossing along the outer parts of the garments.
The Alexander Wang collection had plenty of menswear, leather, and velvet to go around.  Velvet was draped over the arms or made into short dresses. Some velvet hung from backpacks. Chunky platform heels were draped with the bottoms of extra long leggings.  There was an excellent motorcycle jacket that Wang elongated all the way to the floor. Some people were put off by the menswear look in  the collection. It was either a you like it or not collection. I must say, the unwearableness of the collection caught me off guard, but I can appreciate the art of it all.
