Diane von Furstenberg recently debuted her new Fall 2011 collection entitled “American Legends.” The sartorial legend herself, along with head designer Yvan Mispelaere, were inspired by the spirit of the Wild West, which translated on the runway to wide-brimmed hats and fringe-lined fabrics, even including cowboy boots and suede accents. Of course, the line featured DVF's signature feminine soignee in the form of gorgeous liquid sequined gowns, luscious fur accents, and updated prints for the new season. Check out the full runway here, and stay tuned for an interview with the designer!

Each day of New York Fashion Week is giving us something to look forward to for Fall '11. We've been seeing longer hems, bold pops of color, and loads of mixed prints — and each show leaves us more excited for the next. Derek Lam hit us with his well-known uptown glamour, VPL showed us sexy metallics, and Alice Ritter offered the ultimate in cool-girl chic. Click through to see day four's Fab-approved looks.
This Fall, Tory Burch was all about English countryside dressing, appropriately upgraded for the modern American girl. Tweed pieces — including midcalf skirts, blazers, and wide-leg pants — ruled the runway, while silky palazzo bottoms proved to be the must-have piece for Fall. Romantic tie-front blouses, shearling-trimmed coats, and a bold crimson velvet suit provided other enticing highlights, while the overall '70s-inspired palette (think brown, rust, and soft peach) had us dying to outfit ourselves for the next fashion season! Watch it all here!
Donna Karan dreamed up a collection fitting for the city girl. True to her street aesthetic, the collection, seen earlier today in Chelsea in a brick-covered venue, was made for stomping the pavement and turning heads. Inspired by modernists in New York City, Karan envisioned fuzzy angora sweaters in bright hues and bold stripe patterns, houndstooth suits and skirts, wide-leg trousers, skinny pencil pants, and tailored coats. It was the details, like a recurring tux stripe detail or contrast color inserts, which gave the collection a smart shot of modernity, youth, and a slight nod to the ‘70s. Bright shots of color were tempered with neutral hues emoting a pop of punch and fun. Karan also sent down a number of sleek three-quarter-length coats embellished with leather sleeve accents; knit and houndstooth padded jackets, which were her remixed take on the classic puff coat; and the standout silhouette of the show, a crisp tailored wool cape.
- Trends: Fuzzy sweaters, tailored capes, contrast trim.
- Colors: Red, pink, henna, black, cream, navy, gray.
- Key Looks: Cape jackets, angora sweaters, houndstooth suit.
- Accessories: Ankle-braced Mary-Janes, cap-tie booties, mini-bags with leather tassels.
- Who Would Wear It: Stylefiles on the go, city slickers.
Derek Lam has all your sartorial bases covered. His Fall 2011 collection was filled with fluid silhouettes and wearable, yet unique, pieces like printed wide-leg trousers, pea and shearling coats, and divine poplin halter dresses that floated down the runway. Leather and lamé touches added further intrigue, while a killer white jumpsuit left us dying for more. Watch our complete runway coverage now to see all the must-have looks!
Derek Lam has made a name for himself in classic American sportswear, bringing modern updates to silhouettes we happily define as classics. Fall 2011 continues his refinement of sportswear. Trousers were colorblocked, oversize menswear coats received sporty stripes, and fur and leather were reworked into cropped vests and pencil skirts. Layering continued to be big, in the form of long tunics over pants, as does the color red, which designers have been using to punch up gray-toned collections. For the finale, Derek went romantic and long, in the form of flowy gowns, including one supersexy version in black leather and navy silk. Take a look at the full runway and backstage interview with the designer on FabSugarTV.
- Trends: Fur details, plaid, leather.
- Colors: Navy, cream, black, red, cobalt.
- Key Looks: The slick leather jackets.
- Accessories: Cream leather calf-length booties.
- Who Would Wear It: Classic women who love a modern twist to their clothes.
For Fall 2011, Catherine Malandrino channeled the sophistication of Paris and New York by showcasing fur and floppy hats appropriate for day and night. The luxurious line was spotted with polka dots, plaids, houndstooth, and cutouts in a variety of colors and fabrics from chinchilla to leather. Not to be outdone by the gorgeous draped dresses, her wide-leg trousers make dressing up for the office just as fashionable as a night on the town. Check out our video to view the full collection!
