Macy's Young Contemporary Fall 2010 Lookbook

Macy's Young Contemporary Fall 2010 Lookbook

Earlier I shared the Macy's Ready-to-Wear Fall 2010 Collection Lookbook, now here's a look at the Young Contemporary lookbook highlighting three main trends: Back-to-School, Smoke & Mirrors and State of Play. Let me explain: Back to school means texture and functional details that reference outdoor utility dressing with lots of layering and rich fall colors of burnt ochre, chestnut brown, deep purple and midnight blue. Smoke & Mirrors translates to a darkly glamorous yet moody aesthetic featuring feminine elements paired with strong tailored pieces, instilling a vintage inspired mood with tones of dusty pink, slate blue, ash grey and mustard yellow. Finally, State of Play evokes folk and native patterns with a modern edge. Oversized garments and bright hues take on an active aesthetic, while matte and shiny sequin stripes look fresh for the upcoming season. I can't wait to see more from the Jessica Simpson clothing line (no shame!) but I can't help but wonder, where are all the jackets and sweaters?!

Fun looks, all, but (unsurprisingly) I'm mostly enamored of the SHOES. Especially those monster platforms!
