Kaelen Fall 2012 Lookbook
I previously told you to watch out for the rising New York based, Toronto raised design talent, Kaelen Farncombe. Her collection takes wardrobe classics like button up shirts, cigarette pants, the boxy jacket and shift dress and re-invents them with strong style lines with an architectural feel, graphic prints and color blocking to create clothes that are still wearable, modern and bold.
The Fall 2012 collection is all about texture with the use of charmeuse, lace, lame, velvet and textured wool. Details like cowl backs, cut out shoulders and angular hemlines are seen throughout. Charming bow ties add a dash of whimsy while column dresses look goddess-like but in a simpler more elegant way. The collection also featured several drop crotch pants but I am a little torn on my thoughts of those. Do you think would you wear drop crotch pants?
