I sneaked away from taking photos at the Philip Sparks fall winter 2011 – 2012 presentation to pop down to the 4th floor of the Burroughs Building to check out the Alexander Berardi Fall Winter 2011 – 2012 collection. Jessica Jensen was hosting Alexander Berardi as he showed off his fall winter 2011 – 2012 wears to buyers and media for three days in Toronto.
This season’s inspiration finds its beginnings in Ali MacGraw and the 1970 hit movie “Love Story”, set in snowy New England. The Berardi girl loves the city, but she’s no stranger to laying about the fire at her country house with friends, and she needs to be ready for both worlds.
Once again, Alexander has us excited for eclectic pairings of long standing fashion staples. Always classic with a modern twist, this season is about making the old new again; reinterpreting the winter jacket with special wood beading
embroidery; reinventing plaid prints in modern cuts for a perfect Upper East Side school girl look; and reviving vintage
knitwear for a luxurious varsity styling.(source Press Release)
The collection features wool twill, silk georgette, knits, silk chiffon, silk twill, sequins and ultrasuede. I found myself liking the collegiate look of Alexander Berardi fall winter 2011 – 2012.
