Like every season for Fashion Couture, Fall 2011 was out of this world. Each and every piece from the designer collections seemed to be inspired from a different world or period in time and culture. Armani Prive channeled his collection from the roots of Japan, while Channel captured a look that belonged to another planet using feathers, beads, oversized pants, dark colors with hints of sparkle matching the beautiful stars at night. Christian Dior’s collection was colorful and theatrical under the new creative directer Bill Gaytten he managed to make the collection feel a chic night in Paris. Giambattista Valli’s collection was filled with bright colors, classic whites and beautiful animal prints channeling the late 60’s and lastly Valentino collection was filled with peices that had a magical feel with such impecable detail, it reminded me of Jane Austen’s era.
