Son Jung Wan Fall 2011

Son Jung Wan was a newcomer to the tents at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2011. The 70s inspired ready-to-wear collection features gorgeous fur pieces as well as fur trim on the shoulders, arms and hem. There's also plenty of sequin details, accordion pleats and pieces with unfinished hems. Fabrics included everything from silk, wool and tweeds. The palette is dominated by soft neutrals of ivory, oatmeal, nude, camel, silver, gray, navy, black and plaid.

Mackage Fall 2011

Mackage is well known for their jackets and coats but for Fall 2011 you'll also see flirty, above-the-knee dresses and fitted, short leather shorts and skirts, along with pleated and sequin detailing.

The palette includes camel, taupe, teal, spruce and black. The collection is sleek, modern and well tailored.
