The SS13 Shows this past Fashion Week has really captured much inspiration. Looking at the pieces down the runway, I realized how each designer incorporated their influences into each collection. It's beautiful and personal that way. Here are some collections I found to be really striking.
Inspiration: The Deep Sea
Every season, I'm drawn to Olivier Theysken's pieces and the effortless, tailored quality. It's dark beauty,with some lighter colors thrown into the mix. Altogether deep blues, grays, and blacks capture its essence.
Inspiration: "Cool Femininity"
Most of us are used to seeing the minimalism of Reed Krakoff's designs, and here we have it. Minimalism, but taken to the next level. This season, Krakoff incorporated sportswear and lingerie into a beautiful collection of impeccable tailored separates, all of which were in the neutral color palette, finishing with a few pops of red.
Inspiration: London/New York
When I arrived at Lincoln Center to watch Anna Sui's show, I expected the extreme- and that's exactly what the show brought. An extreme world of fantasy. Blue, pink, and purple hair! Crazy head pieces and sunglasses completed the looks of youthful lace dresses, brocade jumpsuits, little biker studded jackets, and ditzy floral prints all around. There's no such thing as playing it safe here.
Inspiration: Newton Restrospective at the Grand Palais in Patis
Now this is a collection I really fell in love with. It was so unexpected, Jason Wu surprised the crowd with something more provocative. With leather, lace, and sheer chiffons, it was overall breathtaking.
