Antonio Berardi released his Pre-Fall 2015 Collection recently, and I’m extremely impressed. I find it fascinating how far in advance the fashion world is. I mean, we’re just wrapping up December 2014, and there are fall collections being released for 2015. Amazing! While browsing through Style.com, I came across this collection and had to take a closer look.
I can appreciate the collection based on the fact that it is inspired by menswear and suiting. All of the looks were tailored and clean cut, but were all exceptionally fashionable to say the least. If you know me, you also know that a fashion ‘turn-on’ for me includes clean cut looks. I always gravitate towards clean, structured pieces.
Each look was designed with an evident appreciation for structure, angles, and fine lines. The shape of each piece creates an illusion that also makes each piece unique.
The collection is timeless and full of class. There is no sense that the designer wanted to follow a trend of any sort. He decided to take his own route and developed a sophisticated collection for women who are on the go.
I love the fact that the pieces were made to withstand time. They exude feelings of class and sophistication.
The fabric used to create the collection views to be extremely durable, thick and rich. This adds to the timelessness that the collection brings. The prints chosen flow well with the solid pieces. I’m usually afraid of print, but I think that these prints chosen are delicious!
Of course my favorite pieces were the tuxedo dresses and all of the outerwear. From full coats to blazers, everything was exquisite.
I also fell in love with the scenery that was chosen for the shooting of the collection. I think it reflects a woman who is on the go. The model was gorgeous, and her posing was excellent. She was full of movement, something you don’t see too often these days.
This is one of my favorite collections that I’ve viewed this week due to the fact that it holds versatility with every piece. I’d rock just about everything from the collection, these pieces belong in my closet.
What do you guys think about Antonio Berardi’s new collection? I’m dreaming of the day that I’ll own something from this fabulous collection!
