>> Phoebe Philo pumped up the volume for Pre-Fall 2012, working some serious mass into her signature strong-lined silhouettes. Pants were cut generously through the hip, and jackets looked ultra-roomy with the addition of large lapels and rounded shoulder seams. Peplums, bows, and a smattering of patchwork added just a hint of playfulness, while shiny leather and textural fur provided contrast to the otherwise stark palette of navy, gray, and black.
>> The complete Jason Wu for Target lookbook has finally arrived. Inspired by French New Wave films and the actress Jean Seberg, the 53-piece capsule features a selection of seriously covetable separates — blouses with Peter Pan collars, pleated skirts, and nautical-tinged dresses — as well as a hefty assortment of luxe-looking handbags and accessories. "My goal was not to duplicate anything from my main collection," Wu explains. "Instead I designed completely new clothes and accessories that reflect my taste and have a voice of their own." With everything in the collection priced under $60, it seems that soon everyone will be able to afford a little piece of Wu to call their own as well. Click through to see the entire collection, hitting stores February 5th.
