Where all things beautiful collide

I have to be honest that up until this season, camouflage print has never been a favorite of mine, but now I’m quite the fan!  I could almost say Christopher Kane is solely responsible for this conversion, with his nearly one dozen looks with camo in a grey and blue combo, and even more unexpected red motif.  I think that right there is the reason I’m liking camo now; it’s the nontraditional palettes, and beyond that the interesting materials and fabrics it comes in.  Michael Kors showed fur in both a classic olive-based palette, as well as a super of-the-moment black, blue, and white scheme.  Kors even showed an almost ikat version of camouflage on a couple skirts, as did Phillip Lim for some pieces in his men’s collection.  I would love pillows out of the multi-colored print Lim used that has just a hint of pink.  Designers like Christopher Kane, and Karl Lagerfeld for Fendi also combined the idea of patchwork with camo, as seen on Kane’s oversized coat, and Fendi’s fringed pieces.  If you are going to wear camouflage, whether it’s classic olive, or vibrant blue, keep it polished and add something dressier and unexpected to really make it modern, like the embellished collar blouse Phillip Lim did, or the addition of fox fur at Christopher Kane.  For the men, add a camel-hair coat like at Michael Kors to keep it nice and tailored.  Fall’s camo prints are certainly not from the army surplus store, but are a great modern reference to those that serve our country, and beyond, everyday.
