Everyone’s favourite fashion season is coming soon – goodbye summer (almost) and hello autumn beauty. To get you in the mood, Lifetime Collective has a practical, versatile Fall 2012 line with a little West coast spirit shining through.

Designed by Creative Director Judith Feller, the collection is a collaboration of bohemian and Americana influences, with a range of autumn-friendly shades like red, orange, black, navy blue, and forest green.

Judith’s previous work with lily + jae can be seen in the wearable and comfortable designs she created for Lifetime Collective. “I really like the concept behind Lifetime as a brand. I like the idea of teaming up with a bunch of creatives to make a collective. [Owners] Reid and Trevor are both designers and entrepreneurs who I respect, so working with them was an easy choice.”

Here are a few of our favourite things from the Fall 2012 collection.

One of our favourite pieces was a cropped, quilted jacket in a beautiful print pattern, and we asked Judith Feller about the inspiration behind it: “Those were definitely drawn from the bohemian inspiration. The quilting is a classic vintage finish that I have always wanted to do. The prints were subtle yet a more contemporary feel for Lifetime.” Details include contrast seams against the print, and an ever so slight puff at the shoulder. Jessie Jacket in orange/burgundy print, $120

Centre: This classic black dress can be dresses up and down with the right accessories, like a few long layered necklaces and a nice cuff. Lou Dress, $110. Seen here with the Mallory Belt, $40.
