We asked the designer to give us five looks to wear now to get a jump on fall trends.
Leather jacket: Whether it be a blazer, a motorcycle jacket or a leather jacket in a color such as fuchsia, an elegant leather jacket is key, he advised. “I really like the jackets we did this season,” he said. “We did a lot of different styles in jackets. You can wear them over dresses. You can wear them all fall. They are my favorite pieces.”
Print on print: “There are a lot of interesting prints out there. Mix a blouse in one print with pants in another.”
Stiletto pumps: “No more platforms.”
Sequin cocktail dress: “A little glamour is important. Add some sparkle.”
Faux animal accessories: “Something that I love to play with are faux pony hair and faux crocodile skin,” he said. “You can use them for a backpack or wallet. It has that luxurious feeling without hurting the animals.”Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
