Art is said to imitate life, but in the Loeffler Randall pre-fall '13 collection, it's design that's imitating the artist — and in the best way possible. Jessie Randall pulled inspiration from one of the largest cultural figures in history, Frida Kahlo, for her massive pre-fall collection. According to Randall, it was the artists' androgyny and heritage that can best be seen in the newest set of designs from the NY label we can't help but crave each season.
Mixing the everyday wearability and feminine-meets-sturdy designs of the Loeffler Randall brand, the pre-fall collection also introduces a set of exciting new details to top off our fall (or pre-fall) ensembles. Snakeskin, pom-poms, multiple buckles, and polka dots are splattered across shoes and handbags, but never in a way that feels trite or like an afterthought. In fact, it's in the prints and the collared booties that we can best appreciate the mix of art and fashion. Plus, with a cool, casual lookbook featuring designer Yara Flinn in her Brooklyn home, we find these new Loeffler Randall selects all the more irresistible.
Check out the images from the lookbook ahead...and every single awesome piece to add to your fall wish list right. Now.
