This is not the first time that the gorgeous Brazilian model stuns on Intimissimi campaign ads. This fall 2014 ad campaign from lingerie brand brings back Ana Beatriz Barros to showcase the new underwear styles. The campaign images were shot on location at the Arena di Verona by Russell James, an abandoned amphitheater. Ana looks absolutely stunning in the sexy black, lace-adorned styles from the intimates label.
The part three of my favorite pre-fall 2014 looks, continues with Altuzarra, Belstaff, Reed Krakoff and Temperley London.
Joseph Altuzarra’s pre-fall 2014 collection this season is the sense of play for women who takes seduction seriously. Altuzarra whipped up fine-gauge knits with the French SAPEURS-POMPIERS logo striped across the chest. He pumped up the colors—red especially—and found convincing ways to mismatch cotton plaids, a sleeveless sheath with an hourglass-enhancing curved seam at the waist being the prime example.
The Pre-Fall collection designer Martin Cooper for Belstaff showed was as soft and rounded as any he’s ever shown, from the relaxed trousers to the round-shouldered, chunky knits. They came in black-and-white tweeds and lacquered checks—more graphic than anything Cooper has yet attempted. Skirt lengths got shorter, boots got higher: All in all, a flirty collection.
Krakoff’s client is an urban career woman with money to spend on her office clothes, along with the occasional party dress. In essence, he’s fusing masculine pieces, like the button-down shirt and overcoat, with more overtly feminine touches, like ruching and Fortuny pleating.
Coats were a strong suit, be it a sleeveless style worn over a pony-hair-and-leather layering vest, a structured cashmere topper with strong shoulders, or a more softly tailored style with the ease and informality of a cardigan.
Alice Temperley’s pre-fall 2014 collection has delicate appliqué of feathers that were printed on silk satin. Temperley has been obsessed with movie costumes, while she was working on this collection. That’s why there is somthing cinamatic on this season’s pre-fall collection. She also reflects a movie goddesses from the thirties infected the languid glamour of Temperley’s evening looks, such as the pieces with black cutwork on an ivory base, gorgeous cocktail dresses, the tulle with swags of delicate appliqué. With their clean column shapes and graphic contrasts, there was a distinctly Art Deco feel to these clothes.

Previously I picked my favorite looks from Pre-Fall 2014 collections of Akris, Burberry, DKNY and Tory Burch. Another week and another new Pre-Fall 2014 favorite looks by Diane von Furstenberg, Fendi, Just Cavalli and Alexander Wang.
DIANNE VON FURSTENBERG
To celebrate the 40 years of Diane von Furstenberg’s wrap dress, while designing Pre-Fall 2014 collection DVF brings prints this season—modeled after the undulating curves of Murano glass and the black and white checks of skyscrapers lit up at night. DVF names this collection “Organic meets geometric.“
The colors for Pre-Fall are particularly vivid, especially the azure blue and violet of a knee-length shift. Simple, softly constructed silhouettes predominated.
The future always arrives with the past! It was hard to choose only six favorite looks from FENDI Pre-Fall 2014 collection, and I am thrilled by every single look. I could wear every single outfit of this collection, which are made in extreme craftsmanship, the sleek sophistication, the pagan finishing touch. The masculine tweed and shearling cut into solid silhouettes, and a prevailing somber seriousness, by odd patches of color applied in a process called thermo-pigmentation
Roberto Cavalli set his sights on historic Persia and Turkey for Pre-Fall 2014 Just Cavalli line. With this theme in mind, Cavalli mashed up tapestry patterns inspired by traditional kilim rugs—similar to those carpeting the floors of his own Florentine villa—with his signature leopard spots and python scales. Just Cavalli maintains a youthful rock ’n’ roll edge for Pre-Fall 2014 Just Cavalli line.
Pre-Fall 2014 found Alexander Wang in a cautious mood on the way things he put together. Clean lines, minimalistic design, urban and more or less casual looks, items like Wang’s wool jacket with an eroded-looking collar, a camel cashmere sweater that peeled away in the back, black oversized dresses wrapped around the hip, apron-style, and sculpted tees and dresses in which the excess selvage had been sewn into a Mohawk-style fringe. The fringe was one Western element here; more were to be found in Wang’s footwear, which hybridized cowboy boots and brogues.
