New York to London to Paris & Milan—Fall 2010 Fashion Week Brings a Few Other Destinations to Mind

PhotobucketCall it the economy, call it wearable art—but this fall's crop of shows have "Take me away," written into every seam...Photobucket
(1) BIG CITY, BRIGHT LIGHTS>> Grab the hair gel, the eyeliner, the Ray-bans and a structured bag—it's off to the city if Bottega Veneta, Dries Van Noten or Alex Wang have anything to say about it.

(2) SPLENDOR IN THE GRASS>> Who says fall shouldn't be coming up roses? Hit the country for an early holiday in florals, neutrals, crochet and great boots.

(4) INDIGENOUS DETAILS>> With no shortage of fur, feathers or animal prints, this season's catwalk finds roots firmly planted in native terrain.

(5) FIT FOR THE FUTURE>> Black may be the new black, but volume, reflective plating, rough textures and sturdy draping also fit right in to the apocalyptic dream-state that lies ahead.

(6) ONCE UPON A TIME>> Time travel to a place of old-world elegance and charm with brocade prints, endless gold detailing, all kinds of appliquè and some of the richest reds you've ever seen.

(7) DESERT'S BEST DRESSED>>Ditch the tights and throw on some sandals—a loose-fitted frock or a long, breezy dress will get you through festival season in spite of the heat and lack of sleep.
