Matthew Williamson‘s bridal line is almost here! The British designer tested the waters with a capsule collection of wedding gowns for Net-a-Porter last year, and now he just released images of his first collection of dresses under his own label. The 12-piece lineup includes a parachute gown, a tulle cocktail dress with a feather skirt, and a sheer silk maxi style, as well as jewel-encrusted mink and rabbit fur shrugs. “I evolved the bridalwear from the soft femininity and luxurious aesthetic found within my runway collections each season,” Williamson told us recently. “The pieces will offer an extensive range of options—classic silhouettes to entice both the boho, glamourous brides-to-be and the more structured, modern brides alike.” The collection will be available in several months. And what’s better when shopping for a wedding gown than options?!

Stefano Pilati’s fall 2011 fashion show for Yves Saint Laurent featured one particular pattern: Prince of Wales checks, which appeared on everything from coats to pleated skirts. The pieces offered a lean silhouette with a mostly black, white, and gray palette. Shots of purple and blue also appeared, as well as all white options for evening that made for ’70s Bianca Jagger-inspired looks. Upon closer look, chain links adorned chokers, clutches, belts, shoes, and were printed on coats. Wedge footwear was the only heel shape in the collection, even seen on knee-high suede boots, patent loafers and gold options for evening. “This collection by Stefano Pilati was self-assured and super chic,” InStyle‘s fashion director Cindy Weber Cleary reported from Paris of the house’s designer.

A mix of daytime and evening looks paired with the mix of both masculinity and femininity dominated Stella McCartney‘s fall 2011 runway. Daytime looks included balloon sleeve tops paired with pencil skirts or high-waist trousers and a handful of her signature suits. Sheer fabrics covered in polka dots and cocktail dresses with strategically-placed sheer panels made up McCartney’s evening-inspired looks. Accessories were simple with faux patent leather flat loafers for daytime and heels for evening, while the circle motif appeared again on hard-case clutches.
