Fall Collection

From the moment this jacket hit Isabel’s NYC store, it’s been permanently on my mind. I love a
good motorcycle jacket, but this style, THIS style! is what I’ve needed all along in my life.
And I didn’t even know I needed it beforehand. So why haven’t I bought it you ask….$$$.
No matter how much internal debating or negotiating, I just can’t justify it.
What’s a girl to do….

Okay first things first, I LOVE THESE PHOTOS! I can’t even tell you how excited I was to repost
them from Maryam Nassir Zadeh’s site. In my opinion, there’s nothing more appealing as a shopper
than to see my favorite designer’s clothing come to life in street style shots. These close-ups
of her knits and the way the lighting hits this model’s hair is just overall perfection!

I know that you know that Isabel likes to recycle different pieces from collection to collection,
but I was surprised to see how much this print was used for Fall. I love these silhouettes,
but what I don’t love is having too many options. Well maybe it’s not the option of too many options,
I just would’ve liked the option of different prints.
What do you think?

One of my absolute favorite bloggers, Erica, alerted me to these photos of Isabel’s Étoile Fall 2012 collection. You got a first look at her stuff here, but Charlotte has managed to feature a tremendous amount of her upcoming line ranging from scarves to coats. The chunky knits are my top priority, especially the one in the last photo. What are your favorites?

I’m so in love with these close-ups, seeing the models backstage. Anja, Arizona, and Liu are some
of my favorite models so when you drape them in Isabel’s clothing the stars align. In the case of
these Western shirts, I need their modeling powers to convince me because I’m a bit indifferent to
the look. It’s hard to picture myself wearing embroidered florals, but when I see how cool Liu looks
in the black one, I may just ride off into the sunset with it…maybe. :)

Aside from Isabel’s boots (which were absolutely my favorite piece!), I was also drawn to the
Victorian meets Western inspired looks from her collection. The Old World detailing mixed with 
her signature mini skirts seem to transcend time for me, making them quite wearable. I love Aline
Weber’s look in the last photo (already picturing that skirt with an oversized knit and some

Looking back at Isabel’s past shows, I found some favorites from her Fall 2007 collection. The
color palette is exactly how I envision fall weather, and her pieces, of course, are as luxurious as
they are casual. I think my 2007 self would’ve worn the wool jacket, top, and skirt combo ALL
the time.
