With two solid days of fashion shows and fashion parties, The Shops Buckhead Atlanta may have just created Fashion Week in Atlanta. The open-to-public event featured the Fall 2016 collections from many of their top retailers - talk about staying on trend with the "show now shop now" fashion movement.
On Saturday, September 17, Style South hosted the finale runway show at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. Hundreds of guests and VIPs sipped on champagne at the luxury shopping destination while taking their seats and eagerly awaiting the runway show which showcased the latest looks from Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet, Canali, Les Copains and Etro.
Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet opened the show with their signature edgy glam for the modern woman. Canali followed with a classic collection of menswear. They featured a black and white houndstooth trench that stole the show. The third collection, by Les Copains, was an ethereal show-stopper with it's lace, layering and proportion. Closing out the annual Style South with a collection of menswear and womenswear was Etro. No one mixes color and pattern more successfully and elegantly than Etro.
The Shops Buckhead Atlanta have a winner on their hands and I bet they're already planning for next year!
I'm a sucker for anything orange as it is my favorite color, so you know I am loving Canali right now for featuring so much of it! The pops of color came mostly in the neckwear, collar and knitwear departments. The color was a smart complement to the midnight blues, blacks and grays in the collection. [Very] fitted suits in a blue/black check, some double-breasted, and pony skin coats, perfectly tailored, came down the runway in abundance. I liked tucking the sweater in the pant, but be warned, that styling trick works best on the very skinny! I And while I am impressed at some of the sartorial choices and design elements presented, I didn't care for the wide lapels. Canali's creative director Andrea Pompilio is clearly moving the table forward and I say keep it up!
PS... I really need [want] one of the pony skin coats or jackets...
