A Top Trend For Fall: Velvet

Every Fashion Week, there is at least one trend that all the editors fall in love with. Last season, there were exclamations about utilitarian jackets worn over flirty floral dresses at Louis Vuitton, and the seemingly unfinished and shorn masterpieces from Prada and Jil Sander. This time around, I was so impressed by the designers' creativity, I couldn't decide on just one trend to highlight. So, over the next couple of days, I'm going to break down the a few of the best for you here.

My personal favorite is velvet, which seems to have replaced leather as the new cashmere!

From the fearless use of the material in Joseph Altuzarra's collection of impeccably tailored crushed velvet skirt suits, echoing the days of Tom Ford at Gucci, to Anna Sui's tactile, rich take on a flapper, I was completely wowed. Here, a few standout looks from the runways.
