For Louis Vuitton's Fall collection, master Marc Jacobs continued to channel a vintage vibe invoking the '40s and '50s with puff-sleeved Pan-collared French maid uniforms, mid-calf skirts, and cinched-waist silhouettes. His inventive use of fabrics — everything from rubber to plasticized lace — added serious intrigue, as did top models Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Amber Valletta, and Carolyn Murphy strutting the runway in conductor's hats and dominatrix boots.

For Chanel’s Fall, Karl Lagerfeld went to the dark side turning out models in purposefully weathered-looking tweed jackets, slouchy pants and lace dresses all in a shadowy palette and against a background of a fog-shrouded forest.

Full of python prints, retro, '70s looks, and chic colorblocked pieces, the Chloé Fall 2011 collection stayed true to designer Hannah MacGibbon’s signature style. A few standout pieces from the line include a silk python print dress and a colorblock poncho – plus a very daring leather jumpsuit. Check out our video for more from the designer at Paris Fashion Week.
Model Miranda Kerr wasn't the only fashionable face at the 2011 Balenciaga Fall show, which also counted Orlando Bloom and Anna Wintour among the front-row attendees. For Fall, creative director Nicolas Ghesquière took color-blocking and futuristic textures to a whole new level. Strong silhouettes were created with roped-leather vests and jackets, as well as fishnet tops paired with floral skirts in exotic prints. Watch our video for more from the runway!
For Fall 2011, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana took us back to the mid-'80s with their totally fun D&G collection. Models were turned out in dresses and separates with alphabet prints all festively accessorized with colorful charm necklaces and high-heel, Converse-like sneakers paired with thick scrunchy socks. And while the first part of the runway show offered outfits in strictly black and white, the latter part quickly advanced to a neon spectrum that included thrilling hot-colored blazers.

Moschino is always celebrated for its cheeky chic fashions, and the Fall 2011 runway proved no exception to the rule. The show was a healthy mix of bold, menswear-inspired suits topped off with old-time conductor hats and ladylike ensembles accented with evening gloves or streams of pearls. Highlights included a gold lamé maxi skirt and navy sweater combo and a stunning fur-trimmed metallic evening coat. To see all the wonderfully festive looks, watch our runway coverage now!
For Fall 2011, Miuccia Prada drew inspiration from the '20s and the '60s, offering dropped-waist dresses, wide-belted big-button coats, sheer shifts, and Mondrian-esque block prints all topped off with colorful python-print, knee-high boots. And despite the unfussy nature of the silhouettes, glamorous touches via vibrant fur, the aforementioned python, and colorful paillettes made the ensembles truly unique.

Alberta Ferretti's Fall 2011 collection was unexpectedly vibrant, filled with shift dresses and suits in shades of fuchsia, petrol, and electric blue. The first half of the show was a parade of colorful daywear finished off by velvet thigh-high boots, while the second half offered signature cocktail and evening frocks with such festive embellishments like feathers, sequins, and lace.
