HOT OFF THE RUNWAY
My mum warned me that those long flowy pleated sunray skirts (at least that’s what she calls them) were making a comeback and now by George, I have to say, I believe, I believe.
What stands out to me about this collection aside from it not being too fussy is the sharpness and the sort of clean-cut-urban-chic it evokes. Any woman would be at ease in any one of these designs. I like how every outfit seems to be making a bold statement of its own, be it with the statement accessories or cut and design. Even with the presence of a theme, no two designs remind you what you’ve just seen walk by and that’s exactly the feeling any woman would hope she is exuding when she’s all dressed up. This Pre-Fall Collection was unveiled on Monday in New York City and I hope you enjoy my ‘best of the lot’ selections as displayed below.

FASHIONWIDGET’S TOP PICKS
FRONT ROW GUESTS↓
Trends we loved: The Black scarves on the heads of the models looked utterly tres chic, absolutely loved the waist-length extensions which gave the outfits a very urban-club feel, the black and gold theme, the gold studs and gold accenting, the fringe tassel dresses, the raccoon eye makeup, ankle length lace-up boots (especially the teal and black ones) and the skin-tight LBDs.
Trends we would pass on: The Choker necklaces seemed a bit overdone and the sequin mini dresses looked a bit ill-fitted on the models (maybe it had something to do with the lining or lack there-of).
Fashionwidget’s Verdict: The Versace for H&M Collection earns an A+ for presentation, simply loving the fact that they did an actual fashionweek-esque runway show displaying the ensembles which go on sale November, 19th 2011 at participating H&M stores everywhere. Though the final grade for the actual products will be determined once the items reach store shelves and racks, when we are actually able to inspect, select & buy them. Hopefully, this does not turn out to be another Missoni for Target event.
