My Fall/Winter 2009 Runway Favorites!

Anna Sui Fall/Winter 2009 Runway
The fall/winter 2009 runways have been out for a little while now, and I wanted to post my favorites to share with you the wonderful prints that are inspiring me right now. I am so ready for fall! I got all my images from Be sure to head over there and look through the runway designer collections! There's a plethora of beauty and inspiration to peruse.

The two designers who stole the show for me were Anna Sui and Basso & Brooke. Both of their collections were full of stunning prints! I just adore Anna Sui. Her looks this fall were breathtaking, beautiful and boho-girly! Psst...look for Anna Sui's collection for Target coming out tomorrow, September 13th!

Basso & Brooke's collection is so awe-inspiring to me because of the digital printing techniques they used. It's amazing to me to see how they custom designed the placement of pattern on their silhouettes - when you zoom into the garments, you will see that the different designs are not cut and sewn, but rather digitally engineered.

Dries Van Noten did a wonderful Asian inspired patchwork/origami print collection. I love how the patterns are spliced into unique geometric shapes and contrasted with bold color. What's also inspiring to me is how in one garment you will see the same print and it is used at a different scale or in a different version of a colorway.

I absolutely love the soft knit dressing Missoni did this season! The soft and warm color palette combined with the diffused and airbrushed florals are breathtaking!

D&G did a beautiful baroque and ornate collection full of wallpaper prints and digitally printed photographic paintings from old world masters.

Marni is always chic and feminine, which I LOVE! These were two of my favorites from the collection. High-shine and opulent fabrics, and amazing statement necklaces!

Etro is always one of my favorites because of their amazing paisley and ethnic prints. This season was no different. I am really inspired by the patchwork trend that is running throughout many of these runway collections. What's fun is that it's not patchwork sewn into squares, but patchwork designs that are printed into a variety of shapes.

Check out Kenzo's sweaters this season! I heart the rose sweater coat! Kenzo's collection is full of beautiful textured designs and print mixing.
