I adore Betsey Johnson its a dream of mine to go to one of her shows and then visit Pat Field! The first look in this post reminds me Beatniks! The second, a play on the '20s again and then the cute pink outfit for funsies. Those silver boots are so pimped up Scooby Doo style shoes. Betsey makes me love fashion.
Look at how amazing those books are! Chunky platform and heel, they'd be effortless to walk in. The DKNY show was my favourite to watch online via Facebook. I always enjoy the sneaky paps getting quick shots from the background.
This collection to me oozes what DKNY embodies. The New Yorker/old Sex and the City attitude. Just look at that expression and overall look, I want to be her/own that coat!
This colour is ox-blood.
I love the fur trim on this otherwise oversized coat. The scooped neckline really suits the style and is also cut on some of the jumpers shown.
This colour is cerulean, just like Devil Wears Prada!
Donna Karan always says the shoulders never show age, personally I love to the decolletage, especially with a tan but even here so pale and in contrast to the black, with the platform red shoes, the look is streamlined yet powerful.
Although this is DKNY I have seen other designs of the 'fur coat' from other designers for AW12. I think we should all wrap ourselves in fur next season. Note the shoes! The contrast of a hint red and black really breaks up the classic 'all black' outfit.
How good does Donna Karan look! Can I be your friend?

Yay for the midi skirt and coral lip!
I'm seriously investing in jersey and playsuit styles. I'm obsessed with this fabric, the way it hangs and the style. Its like velvet dungarees.
Captain Hook shoes! This collection reminds me of the posh people in the film Titanic where they all wear their best hats and furs to dinner. New York AW12 has been amazing, probably because fur is more accepted over there because of Anna Wintour and in the summer all they play with is sportswear jersey (over generalisation, you get what I mean though...) I'm in awe of all these collections featured! Especially Ms Witchy in the second photo.
Overall the recurring trends I have noted are black cobweb witches and Ice witch pastel blues.Wow at pink metallics!!
