While I usually talk about Vera Wang's affordable line at Kohl's, today I needed to devote some space to her eponymous high-end line. The designer showed her fall 2011 collection in New York City for Fashion Week (I was not in attendance, dream on), and it consisted of various iterations of flowing pleated skirts and gowns that managed to be ethereal and severe at the same time. There were none of the embellishments that Vera Wang has come to be known for, those big artsy necklaces and rhinestone clusters, but there was plenty of fur, leather gloves and fierce boots to make up for it. Or did it? I guess I like to see a bit more color and a bold print or two from Vera but who am I to judge. I can see the parkas trending well for mass market but imagine we won't see so much sheer-ness for the Kohl's shopper.
