Pre-Fall 2012 - Alice + Olivia, elle rêvait de Paris

Caitlin Surakitbanharn

Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet always paints a beautiful picture, non?  for Pre-Fall 2012, it was a chic Parisian girl on her way to/from a cafe on a cool autumn day.  she has a thing for sparkles, a thing for chunky mary-jane heels, and a thing for a chic twist on a pant cut straight out of 1976.  she's into berets, a cool cat-eye sunglass, and her bangs are making a statement.  she's cool and fashionable without being pretentious.

the sweater/fur shrugs and capes and jackets are the stand-out pieces here, helping the sparkly skirts and printed maxi dresses reach their maximum potential.  other eye-catchers - two of the closing dresses - one with a long black chiffon skirt, the other with a sequined strapless bodice and a long, sweeping, Grecian skirt to it.  both are perfect for a late August soiree, and both are sure to make heads turn.







(LOVE this look. perfection.)




STUNNING.  immediately on my must have list!

the collection is well rounded; cocktail dresses, skirts, shorts, blouses, sweaters, pants, eveningwear - but one can't help but feel a bit overwhelmed.  a little editing would have done this collection well (and feeding the poor model would have done her well too.  i rarely flinch at a super skinny model, i understand the realities of their lives, but this girl made me wince.  she's beautiful but painfully thin).
