Honor Fall 2012: The Bold and the Beautiful

It's no secret that we are big Honor fans here at Fashionista. Just about every collections Giovanna Randall has shown thus far in her relatively young career as a designer has been so beautiful and elegant that it takes our breath away. Her fall outing, inspired by "this preppy boy on his semester abroad in college and meeting an exotic woman from South or Central America and how their styles mix together" was no exception. Not that it was more of the same. The prints--a big rose print and a geometric art deco print--were new and as Randall explained, she "took it a little bid bolder" this season. That boldness could be seen in strong reds and purples and gorgeous big box-shaped bags. Still, she mainly stuck to wearable, classic silhouettes, as she tends to do. We were actually surprised by the lack of red carpet-worthy gowns, considering her burgeoning popularity with Hollywood starlets like Kirsten Dunst and Shailene Woodley, who was in the front row looking like the low-key, five-finger shoe wearing, former American Apparel employee she truly is.

We were also a bit surprised by, but really into, these cool jumpsuits with wide, pleated legs--which was what a 5 1/2 months pregnant Randall was wearing. She looked amazing and told us that while she doesn't know if it's a boy or a girl, she is "definitely going to be making clothes" for him or her. She said she doesn't know if she'll start a line, but could you imagine how adorable tiny Honor dresses would be? I couldn't handle. Click through for the full collection!
