The rain pattered gently, just loud enough to be heard softly through the double pained glass. The birds sang lightly through the weather, not ready to give up their morning posts.
The chill in the corridors was undeniable. Fall is here. And with it, a new season of luxury with Anne Fontaine.
Readily equipped for the darker days that lie ahead, Anne Fontaine has just released their FW22 collection.
Bolstered with strong details, this drop faces the season in unrequited resolve. Padded full-length jackets, crepe utility cargos designed with a more elegant consumer in mind – it’s just what you’d hope for from the bold, darkly romantic brand of luxury.
The fall collection is edgier than ever, with high contrast pieces that exude ferocity while not withholding Anne Fontaine’s signature celebration of feminine style.
Beyond the seasons statement pieces, ruffled blouses, elegant knitwear and new additions to Anne Fontaine’s signature white shirt collection.
My seasonal selects, a padded jacket, crepe cargos and some classic Anne Fontaine workwear pieces.
The full length, reversible padded jacket is an evolution of utilitarian style – a crisp golden hue on one side and classic black on the other.
Undeniably a statement piece, there is a notable eastern influence and intricate details that scream cultured luxury.
Paired with boots and an all-black ensemble, it’s only a shame fashion week has already come and past.
In the spirit of versatility, the look can easily transcend from fall to winter with a flip of the jacket and a footwear change. Or, take off a layer to show this season’s sophisticated new cargos.
Anne Fontaine’s new Ballade cargos maximize utilitarian street style trends with side pockets and silver hardware while maintaining a sense of elegance with feminine details.
But the real star of this re-imagined silhouette is the surprising material that differentiates the style. Crafted with a beautiful, heavy-duty crepe, the Ballade pants drape in the utmost elegance, making these cargos a sort of trouser hybrid that’s clearly made to navigate office to street style in effortless sophistication.
Of course, I could not review Anne Fontaine’s fall collection without mentioning their classic white shirt and workwear essentials.
This season I selected a striped blouse and classic black trousers that bolster my wardrobe of timeless classics. I’ve been forever a cult consumer of Anne Fontaine’s white shirts, so the subtle print felt like a nice evolution to mix up my staples in a silhouette and crisp poplin fabric that I already knew I loved.
While working in a business casual environment lends me to some freedoms in weekday dressing, my position also calls for a professional presentation – which Anne Fontaine suits with both grace and style.
This combo lends itself well to a comfortable ensemble that can go from everyday Monday to impromptu board meeting.
As always, it’s the details and quality fabrics that make the Anne Fontaine collection a notable player in the luxury fashion market.
The crepe trousers are easy to keep wrinkle free with a timeless straight-to-wide leg silhouette and elegantly welted pockets.
The new collection pinstripe white blouse features an optional “pussy bow” at the collar and french pointed cuffs. As is standard for the Anne Fontaine collection, the cuffs allow for cufflinks if you should decide to dress up beyond the pearled button set that’s included.
