Autumn Winter 2011 Catwalks - Jewel Tones

Hello Beauties, 
Yes, there was a lot of black of the catwalks (it's the autumn collections, isn't there always?) but it was punctuated by colours that dazzled like prize gems: emerald, amethyst, garnet, ruby, sapphire... For maximum impact, glistening sequins and silks give jewel-toned creations a glamour that's simply priceless.

All the images are of designer, catwalk, clothes. They are extremely expensive. And, like many others I simply can not afford these clothes so I go out shopping and buy items of clothing from high street stores that resemble these high fashion masterpieces! Hope this tip was useful!

"These deep gem shades are exotic, mesmerising and so impactful"
Harriet Quick, fashion features director.

One of my favourite emerald catwalk pieces was from Gucci; this dress was a complex masterpiece (as you can see in the picture above)

This gorgeous kind of casual dress also caught my eye, the green is such a lovely colour and I, personally, love the colour combination of brown and green.
This dress is very 60's, 70's style and at the actual catwalk show the model wore a black kind of cowboy style hat and a bright orange bag, which I thought really made the dress stand out. However I didn't like the hat too much. By Marc by Marc Jacobs.

This coat is a bit darker than the other greens. I love these style of coats as they compliment most figures. This outfit has been another marvellous creation by Chanel, bravo, I applaud you! 


I absolutely ADORE the colour purple and so, amethyst being my favourite gem stone, I love the amethyst coloured clothes out there this autumn. 

I couldn't find a picture that better displays the coat, but I think the catwalk model did tit more justice than this model. But the coat looks so rich and expensive its unreal! By Versace.

"Jewel colours have taken over from the brights of last season, and with names like garnet, sapphire and citrine they instantly give you the feeling of owning something rich and luxurious"
Miranda Almond, fashion editor


This coat does look a bit orange in this picture, but trust me, its red! I love the elegant sophisticated style of this coat and the colour is so bright, you'll be sure to stand out. By Alberta Ferretti.


The picture on the left is the only picture I could find of my favourite outfit in the 'garnet' section of the a/w catwalk pictures. It's just so, British, and it has a wonderful countryside feel to it which I love!

"Embrace the inky hues of Renaissance paintings. Wear for day and night as a new, sophisticated alternative to black" 
Kate Phelan, fashion director.


I liked this coat a lot, as it has a simple charm, looks exquisite and, frankly, I love the colour. It's by Jil Sander.


For me, this dress, is the absolute image of elegance, as it just has a  beautiful air of grace about it. This masterpiece was created by Bottega Veneta.

So thanks for reading, beauties! Please comment with your views, ideas, opinions, etc.
