New York, New York!
Quick round up of some of the main A/W 2013 shows & trends to embrace,
Victoria Beckham: Very tailored and suit style. Colours were very muted and the prints were simple. I love the yellow. The cinched in belt and over sized handbag: classic Posh Spice. Also some pleatled, kilt skirts have been creeping up on the catwalks (were also spotted at Reed Krakoff). Triangular shapes were also spotted.
DVF: Models smiling? Well some tried and failed. I really some of these outfits, specially the last three. The use of jewel metallics complimented the clothes perfectly. Trends were clashing geometric prints, metallics, pencil skirts, cinched in belts, jewel colours and more :)
DKNY: Thought this collection was very varied. It started with a sport luxe theme, very bold shapes and muted colours (like pic one) then fiesty with leopard's taking over! Peplums and leopard print are the way to go. Sink your teeth into rawr-some leopard knitwear & beanies. Me guessing they've been on Tumblr recently. Liking the last outfit as a casual look, but the pic before is really urban. Mr T jewelry much?
Marc Jacobs: This collection was a tad saucy, if I dare say. Featuring pinstripe high waisted shorts and well legs everywhere. Not sure the public would wear shorts in Autumn/Winter. The style wasn't quite flapper, but maybe the 50's style or possibly older. Prints were mainly sequins with fur scarfs (not keen on fur) these definitely made the collection very decadent and demure. Peter pan collars arose on the trench coats; a little like Alexa Chung. Silver everywhere, guessing for the party season. But shorts in Winter? Marc if you're reading can you tell me when does anyone goes out in the snow, in shorts? Hair and make-up were a bit different, like Gallagher hair.
Calvin Klein: Saw Karlie Kloss, surprised she didn't open the show. Defintely a structured collection; with sharp silhouettes, shoulders and elbows you wouldn't want to get in the way of. Think modern and minimalism also think Star Trek. With the slick hair, stealthy coats, leather skirts
