Lanvin 2009 ready-to-wear collection

With fall almost here, designers are back to experimenting with all kinds of rich fabrics, textures and dark colors. Mmmm.

And what better way to kick off the season than with a silk dress? Lanvin included a belted one in its Fall ready-to-wear collection. Love the capsleeves, which add a subtle, sexy touch to an appropriate-for-daytime dress.

The Antonio Melani dress below features ruched detailing at the neckline. This is perfect for fall, whose runways are currently being dominated by draped, ruched and layered fabric. The deep shade of gray just screams glam and leaves plenty of room for accessorizing with jewels and gold. For shoes, platform pumps are still the it thing, with so many great colors to choose from for next season.

I’m dreading the fall cold and lack of sun, but all the fab clothes and accessories coming our way do make up for it!
