It’s just starting to get hot but this is the season for Fall exhibitions or tenjikai/展示会 as they are known and I really liked what I saw of Rienda, Duras and Mercury Duo so I thought I’d show them.
Just when I said I wouldn’t do this kind of thing, I do it… typical blogger.
I think summer is the worst thing ever, I fear it. Let it snowwwww, let it snoowwwww!!! Looking forward to Fall fashion (aka my favorite time of year and styles) makes me happy and I’m happy to report about it.
Rienda – Fall 2015 – Modern Glamour
Lots of traditional popular Fall themes such as pinstripe and houndstooth. Mixed with rich items such as jewel tones and fur coats along with floral onepieces.
Their popular floral dress using an beveled weave for the Spring done in a more Fall palette
Houndstooth and pointy shoes.
Pinstripe and light tweeds.
Transitional outfit but denim jackets are still alive for Fall.
Floppy hats and mustard.
Love this lady simple houndstooth.
Rare all black coordinate by Rienda and floral bottoms.

Duras – Fall 2015 – Radiant Muse
A continuation of their Spring line with lots of kadeliscope (Persian inspired?) prints, restrained bodycon (tight but not often short) and a swingy bohemian style.
That print dress is everything and I really want to buy it.
The A-line dress trend and layered stripes are Spring trends done in autumn colors for Fall.
Jeweled cardigan trend for Spring making a more subdued trend with pearls. Lots of light colored outers mixed with darker dresses.
Extremely typical Duras styles. I bought the left dress in Spring in almost the exact same cut. More Fall hat trends.
Such a cute bustier that could be done Larme or Agejo style. Lavender for Fall I have doubts on but this transitional coordinate makes it work. Duras wants to do a few lavender pieces so we’ll see!
More tweed set-ups to come out.
Trying to tell myself I don’t need this dress, but I love the color choices.
The full collection looking fabulous. I love that they had a selfie mirror as their press advertisement.
Pointy shoes again! Clutches are big as well as lady-like totes and 2-way bags (top handle + shoulder strap).

Mercury Duo – Fall 2015
Just like Rienda, a mustard lace overlay item.
A lot of brands may be trying to make fringe work. Unsure the inroads it’ll make this Fall.
Boxy cropped blouses continue, and yes there’s mustard!
A-line floral dress? A-line floral dress. Pick your brand you’ll probably find one.
This hidden pleats look has been a small summer trend and could be a larger Fall one.
In Fall skirts. Oh black you hide everything.
A trend look for Mercury Duo fall. Earth mustard brown, and a floral long skirt, with fringe bag. The bucket bag style is becoming popular (vintage influences). Check all the prints with mustard options. Mustard will be so big!
Toggle coats in pastels. Light outers will be very popular.
Welcome back floppy hats.
Floral sweater set-ups should be big with otona kawaii crowd, a trend from last Fall.
Earthy mustard browns.
Chunky heel + pointed toe. There will be so many colors and prints to choose from in this look for Fall.
Their Fall transitional look.
I think some brands will try to push culottes. I have doubts they will be successful, but hey mustard!

Check for these trends!
BIG Trends: FLORALS, browns, mustards, pointy shoes, light colored outers, A-line dresses, floppy hats
Medium trends: traditional prints such as pinstripes and stripes and houndstooth, pastels mixed with darker colors or browns, fringe, bucket bags, 2-way bags.
Florals for Winter? Moderately groundbreaking….
I actually am really excited for Fall and a lot of these trends seem shop-worthy now. A bit shocked by the complete lack of pants. I know Otona Kawaii and Oneegyaru brands don’t do them often but it definitely seems they’re not in style right now. It’s always cheaper to shop off season so maybe you can find some cute used or vintage pieces that reflect these looks for cheap!
