I took the time to
skim rip through the pages of Fall 2012 runway looks last night, and shortlisted about 38 from my favorite designers and others, that will be easier, and perhaps fun, to emulate this season. The weather kindly taken into consideration as well. And because lasso-tool-ing the models is mentally and eye taxing, they're coming in parts.

The Suit Stories
The sheer number of suits I shortlisted says much about my preferences. Nonetheless, blazers with a bit more construction from Helmut Lang, color-blocking with blazers, shiny lacquared suits from Prabal and C. Kane, go humble with MM6's denim, lazy with Balmain, ridiculous with Meadham (if you're actually trying this Topshop might be a good place to start - they love sequins to a ridiculous extent), and if you unfortunately hurt your neck and will be sporting a neck brace, try Acne.

Metallica and Statement Dresses
On the left wing, the light shines on the good. Shimmery pieces, Liu Wen shows you that your peplums are still in, oriental goodness from Proenza, and what I'm aiming to do - be a walking mirror with Blumarine. On the right wing, jump off a UFO with Pilotto, and be kaleidoscope-fantastic with Mandy. Is it me, or do those looks like chimps staring at you?
Time to start building up your closet.
