But I love the long, dress coats with the 1920s styling - large lapels on a deep neckline, minimal shaping at the waist, fabulous tapestry prints embellished with over-the-top bling.
Not digging on the furry, yak-hair bags though.
Could this style be incorporated into real-life streetwear? Is she wearing welding goggles? Could a plaid (?) pants suit make it down the canned soup isle without the stock boy clicking off a few pics on his camera phone?
Continuing in the fantastical is Marc Jacobs fall line. Perhaps a bit more Pilgrim-inspired if you judge solely on those buckled shoes, but again the hats harken to the 1910s. And notice the fitted waist and emphasis on the hips. I read somewhere that peplums are big this year (no pun intended). Also, the Twilight series is still wielding a significant hold over fashion, continuing to make the whole Victorian vampire look popular. Which means porcelain complexions and full red lips won't be going away anytime soon.
Michael Kors eveningwear reaches back to both the 1920s with the gold, flapper dress and then the 1930s with that silver, floor length dress. While both of these are gorgeous, I do not have neither the courage to sew with such whack-a-do bias cut pieces nor the balls to wear said garment in the event that I actually finish putting it together. I will gaze from afar.
But let's get back to that plaid coat...
...I've had a piece of wool set aside for a couple years now, destined to become a full-skirted coat. Last summer I picked up a wide, faux-fur collar that will pair with it beautifully. Burberry's fall collection above confirms that this is the winter I sew up that coat. Princess seams and bows on the belts are just too fun to pass up!
