Autumn/Winter 2009.

I am So excited about all the new runway collections and as always i am especially excited by my favourite design house Balmain, will they and could they ever disappoint?
Christophe Decarnin certainly hasn't this season with his strong structured shoulders becoming his most dramatic fashion focal point (still on the hunt for my perfect hard shouldered jacket preferably with stud detailing that i can wear over sequins and florals :)!) his use of metallic and nearly all monochrome colour pallet with the odd dropping of midnight blue, not only dresses dripping in crystals but ankle grazers too teamed for effortless t-shirts, necklines slashed intensely across the collar bone. I honestly cant get enough and defiantly one of my favourite of the season.

I also really like Nicolas Ghesquière use of draping for Balenciaga, his use of satin and vivid 'optical' like patterns.

And of course another label that will never disappoint, Chanel...The high necks, dramatic ruffling detail in white contrasted against black and some of the perfect winter coats in cropped and full length, this seems to be the ideal 'women working in the city' (with a bottomless bank account) autumn winter working wardrobe problems sorted all in one even including the opaque tights needed in every girls winter wardrobe :)
