Forget Bold Colors, This Fall Is All About Bold Collars

August 8, 2012

Collars have had enough. After years of being popped, pressed, and tucked, it’s their time to finally shine. We’ve already given the stylish item the limelight when the Peter Pan collar went to Oxford with color-contrasting or embellished details. The great fashion guru himself Karl Lagerfeld even designed a few detachable collars (the female version of a male clip-on tie?) for his Net-A-Porter capsule collection. But when it comes to layering your blouses and button-downs with your new batch of fall knits, not matching is key—so that the extra pair of fabric surrounding your neck can stand out. Designers like Tory Burch and Tibi followed this fashion rule with their fall runway shows, pairing embellished sweaters and pointy-collared tops. The Canadian designers behind Dsquared2, along with British designer Osman Yousefzada also followed suit, while Giles Deacon kept the collar soft in detail, staying true to the traditional Peter Pan-like silhouette.
