Fall 2008 Fashion Week - Rock & Republic

Sexy, sleek, modern, edgy - all words that can be used to describe Rock & Republic's Fall 2008 collection. It's unusual, but I loved every piece in this collection, both men's and women's wear, and especially the leather.

I have always liked the look of a long, well-fitted coat on a man. Particularly a trench.

One really needs to be toned (or in head-to-toe Spanx) to wear these dresses, but oh how sleek and sexy they are! I love the purples - the only color in the collection other than black.

The first suit really caught my eye - very menswear, but perfectly cut for a woman's figure. And the skirt is a wee bit short on the third look, but the jacket is marvelous. I love all of the different collar shapes in this collection - while every look belongs to a coherent whole, there's not a lot of repetition.

How hot are these coats? The leather looks so soft, yet there is a toughness about it. The shape of coat three (all of them, actually) would translate just as well into other fabrics, but somehow it's the leather that really makes the look.
