Tracy Reese

If you want pointers on how to have everything in a collection without going overboard, look to Tracy Reese. Fur, prints, mini and maxi skirts, accordion pleats, high-waisted trousers, sequins…every kind of girl can browse this collection and find a keeper for her closet. Like the black mini cocktail dress that starts with a sheer shimmer and ends in a fur skirt, or the accordion-pleated halter dress that’s both light and serious. If you’re going to do it all, this is the way to go.

Diesel Black Gold

A little bit of rock n’ roll, a little bit of military, and definitely not minimal, Diesel’s Black Gold Fall ’11 show displayed a pointed intent: to NOT do what everyone else was doing. Drawing on Diesel’s rich tradition of making casual clothing with an edge, designer Sophia Kokosalaki wanted to break from the season’s minimalism trend and stay true to her more-is-more clientele. This resulted in rich cable knits, asymmetrical silk skirts, lace-up denim, and fur-lapel coats for the guys — we’re happy Kokosalaki decided to do her own thing.

Barbara Tfank

When a designer known for her decadent fabrics opts to incorporate more casual choices like denim and leather, our interest is definitely piqued. Barbara Tfank has never been the designer to see about a pair of jeans or leather skinny pants, but for her fall 2011 collection, she added her signature opulence to these common denominators, and they’re barely recognizable. She transformed leather into a swishing off-the-shoulder dress, and as for her take on denim, they became all dressed up as a capelet and flared pants.
