Zimmermann: Deep bordeaux lips, sharp black and gold bow necklaces, and off-the-shoulder designs, portrays a slightly rebellious, very confident woman.

Notes: Off-the-shoulder. Voluminous sleeves. Gold accents. Floral and lace. Net overlays and accents. Corset shape dresses. Black, white and red graphic prints. Gunmetal beaded lines that follow the contours of a woman’s shape. Statement black and gold necklace bows.
Nicole Miller: Warrior Woman is the first thing that came to mind when seeing this collection. Strong, confident woman who takes control. A strong concoction of textures and patterns. Feather and fur skirts, coats and accessories. Several dominating all black looks with a mix of leather, matte and textural fabrics. This warrior woman dominates both man and nature.
Notes: Earth tones with burnt oranges and purples. Fur. Plaids. abstract prints and patterns. Leather moto jackets. pattern mixing. Draped tops with structured bottoms. Leather blocking. Feathers and peacocks. Gold accents.
Rebecca Minkoff: The Fall 2014 collection stayed simple and refreshing. She took masculine silhouettes and feminized them with softer fabrics and color. Stripes and plaids, Crombie coats and baseball jackets all done in a feminine fashion. Pretty pastel pink layered with oxblood, teal layered with blue, and red and sapphire floral jacquards. The liquid gold pieces are so light and airy, beautifully paired with more masculine pieces. A great contemporary collection.
Notes: Dark bordeaux lips. Fabric, texture and color mixing. Calf length skirts. Faux fur. Small chain-link bags and fanny packs. Liquid gold pieces. Jumpers over soft blouses. Luxe sweatshirts. Plaids and stripes. Menswear inspired feminine looks. Color mixed with color.
