A few favorites from the SS’13 shows:
Inspiration: The Deep Sea
Every season, I’m drawn to Olivier Theysken’s pieces and the effortless, tailored quality. There are some light colors thrown into the mix with deep blues, grays and black.
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 in the neutral color palette.
Inspiration: London and 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. A 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.
