I’ve been seeing a lot of similarities between the Fall 2012 Isabel Marant ready-to-wear collection and what’s in Zara right now …¬†coincidence – I think not. This modern frontier theme is just what we need this coming season and the collection couldn’t be more fitting for Marant’s second U.S. store opening on Melrose this September!!

So inspired by Christian Dior’s Haute Couture makeup choices for the Fall 2012 collection. Love the pop of color and the modern applications but the ombre rouge lips have to be my favorite since they mimic the seasonal change in the foliage.

With the launch of Karl Lagerfeld’s Olympic-themed collection at Selfridges in London Tuesday night, Karl calls this an exercise in laughing at himself. But that did not deter some of fashions finest from coming out to support the notable designer and his collection.

“The drama of this collection isn’t a drama,” the designer said. “It’s a joke. It’s an inspiration. In a way, it’s me. So I have to be careful not to get too much into it, because I don’t expect everybody to dress like me. That’s why I like this collection with the t-shirt to make a joke out of me, because I think I’m a cartoon.”
