The Opening Ceremony look book for Fall/Winter 2009 brings a surge of color and a tone of joy that is a welcome contrast to the bleak blacks that dominated last year's fall which came alongside the advent of the recession. (Oh and here we get to see the previously blogged Fall 09 shoes in action!)
fashionably folksy: Opening Ceremony x Pendleton wool jacket
Designers Humberto Leon and Carol Lim bring us the essentials for a happy autumn: pieces bedecked with bursts of color (not merely jewel tones, but bright Crayola colors!)
The crazy, squiggly-embroidered grass green gloves worn in the coat pocket are a nice touch.
The air tie+brocade vest/jacket+crimson trousers are a modern take on dandy style.
and detailed with a healthy dose of humor.
Though probably not the warmest of sweaters, this peek-a-boo sweater is sure to solicit a few mischievous stares from strangers. If you're lucky, you might even get a couple of giggles!
The contrasting plaid shirt gives your fall wardrobe just that little hit of cuckoo. Meanwhile, that plaid jacket with fur trim might just be the perfect cold-weather jacket.
And how genius are their chinos with contrast rolled hems?
khaki trimmed with teal (this I immensely covet.)
I wonder if they're lined with the colored fabric, or if the fabric is really colored that way on the reverse side. What do you think? Either way, they're way up on my want list!
