Nanette Lepore Fall/Winter 2011

Every season, Nanette Lepore always shows one of the most romantic, girly collections of NYFW. Sadly this season I missed her show due to a conflict. Luckily, Maureen was there to photograph the Fall collection. And boy is it gorgeous!

While Nanette is never one to shy away from color, the show started with creamy, winter whites:

Great winter coats, in unique shapes and colors always make an appearance:

Another stand out? The leather platform mary janes, seen in multiple colors. New York Fashion Week Fall 2011 - Nanette Lapore 20
I love that this dress, which alone would be quite summery, was winterized with closed toe shoes, and a wool blazer up top.

White tights add a cutesy feel to the looks:

The show may be girly girl at it’s prime, but a few edgier looks were also thrown in the mix:

Bows take this black leather dress from bondage to beautiful.

One of the only real “misses” in the collection for me. Love the style of the dress, but there is just too much going on with this print:

Another stand out dress. I’d wear it with different shoes though.

One of my two favorite dresses from the collection. This dress captures a 1920’s feel, with out managing to be dated.

My other favorite dress. I’m a sucker for anything sheer!

I’m still enamored with the ruffled velvet dresses from Fall 2010, but this may just be my new favorite Nanette Lepore collection. Overall, I always enjoy because they manage to have something for everyone. Women of all ages can wear her clothes. Some designers who lean more towards the girlie side of fashion get stuck in a time-warp designing for teenagers and very young women. Nanette’s clothes let all women get in touch with their more romantic side.
