zara november 2011 lookbook
It's been a little while since Zara has come out with a lookbook I've really loved. They stepped up their game with this months', however.
The emphasis on black is oddly refreshing compared to the recent attempt to reinvent color for every season. I've had an obsession for a few years now with making floral work in colder weather, and love that here they've paired it a variety of designs with a midnight black background.
While I could probably do without some of the more masculine silhouettes, like the buttoned printed blouse with checkered trousers, the mixing of textures is fantastic. Leather, lace and chambray is edgy but appropriate and the feathers, flannel, pleats and studded boots looks new and exciting.
