Chanel Pre-Fall 2014

Everything’s bigger in Texas and the 2014 Pre Fall Chanel collection was no exception. This show, held in Dallas, celebrated the American West with blanket-pattern knit stoles, ponchos, fringed skirts, white prairie tops, black sheriff ties, and civil war inspired hats by Maison Michel. Native Texan Erin Wasson even walked the runway carrying bottles of Chanel No.5 in her gun holsters. Don’t mess with Tex!

The tone has been set for fall/ winter … this highly copied coveted Saint Laurent collection boasts “California Grunge” with its vintage floral prints, fishnet stockings and punkie plaids. Can you dig it? I sure can.


Even though it’s 85 degree plus weather here, just seeing Phillip Lim’s Pre-Fall collection makes me want to pull on cable knit sweaters and knee-high boots with stockings. I love his use of smart layering with modern materials and how he lined the collars and cuffs with decadent jewels for something a little unexpected and fabulous.
