Fall Trends and Celine

Spring 2013 Fashion Weeks are in full gear, but I wanted to take a moment and contemplate the Fall 2012 collections from back in February since we are now in Fall and I'm trying to assimilate the various high-fashion trends. (Check out my dress-over-pants attempts here and here.) One collection that really caught my eye was Celine.  A few seasons back Celine brought severe minimalism back on the scene and since then head designer Phoebe Philo has been tweaking that concept introducing new silhouettes and shapes.  Here are some of my favorite looks from the Fall 2012 showing:

 
For me this is all about shape and finding a balance between a slouching pant and a sleek top.
 

 
How badass is this?! Love the styling with the little Mod boots.

 
This makes me think I need to get a pair of crisp wool pink trousers. Also, I dig the pairing of wool with leather.
 
 
An orange/red cropped pant, you know I love it!  From this image I'm seeing how to transition my bright cropped trousers into fall with a statement coat.

 
Another statement coat, but for me its all about the color blocking in this look.
 
 
Of course I won't be going on a shopping spree at Celine for my fall wardrobe (I may hit up Tanger Outlets this weekend though...) However, I personally like to take inspiration from the high-end collections and build off of them.  What I'm taking away from this Celine collection is ideas about how to mix different shapes and colors. And of course how to wear my red cropped pants into fall.  What are your fall fashion inspirations?
