Casual, understated and nonchalant chic, with subtle undertones of killer glam rock! Spring Summer 2013, is kicking some serious arse and we’ve not even at my favourite city yet! Before we dive feet first into the second half, here’s my little recap of what went down in NYC and London.
Black lights, an iridescent glow and Wang’s interpretation of, “Pulling the garments apart.” It was structure in its newest, most intricate form, equal parts experimental and functionality all depicted through the light and shade of black and white.
Adapting their statement staple of ultra cool, asymmetrical draping in neutral specific tones, Helmut Lang evolved the stereotype through the exploration of soft peaches and pastel blues. It was laid back and understated in a newer, looser form.
Romantically undone with a sense of rustic dishevelment, the Acne collection was all dusty tones, parachute skirts and printed muscle tees…and wasn’t it fantastic! Maintaining the tough edge of the Acne girl, the collection enabled her to adapt to a new form of brilliance. This is how I would love to dress ALL THE TIME! And seriously, what’s cooler than a printed MUSIC tee!
Sickly sweet in the most Mulberry of ways, the Spring Summer collection came complete with muted golds, soft sweet metallics and perfect preened poodles.
TOMORROW -> MARC JACOBS: my most favourite collection EVER, (big call I know! You’ll see why)
