Fashion collaborations are simultaneously a wardrobe and a wallet’s best friend, finding a happy medium between high fashion and affordability. Often the sartorial partnership delivers runway quality styles by bringing high fashion houses to fast fashion platforms. Here is a list of fashion’s favorite fall collaborations for 2015.
Cult favorite glasses brand Warby Parker is teaming up with luxury brand Maiyet for the sunglasses Bird, starting from $145. The style comes in an assortment of neutral colors and remains in line with Warby Parker’s mission, to supply a pair for someone in need for every pair purchased.
Style Icon Olivia Palermo is the feature guest ‘bartender’ for BaubleBar’s latest accessory collaboration. Inspired by vintage aesthetics influenced by modern interpretations, her line initiates a worthy argument for the revival of brooches and favors statement art deco pieces. The result is timelessly classic.
One of the most anticipated fall fashion collaborations is the annual fast fashion x high fashion fusion authored by mega brand H&M. Each year they partner with major fashion houses to more directly give fashion fans runway looks for a fraction of the price. This year Balmain is the luxury fashion house behind the collaboration set to release in November. The look book is full of immediately recognizable Balmain-esque baroque embroideries and skin-tight tailoring. Sure to sell out in record time, mark your calendars: November 5, 2015
Using the classically autumn print as the central theme of their look book, a bevy of variations of the signature plaid define the Adam Lippes x Target collection. Each look is clean, functional and fashionable and with the highest price at $104 it’s affordable too.
Global style icon and fashion editor Carine Roitfeld has always been the epitome of Parisian style and thus a constant muse of street style photographers everywhere. Her influence and signature style aesthetic has found its way to a buyable platform. Uniqlo will be hosting a collaborative collaboration with the timeless style influencer, and the pieces are described as chic and simple, while valuing and embodying confidence, liberation and inspiration.
