Spring/Summer 2013 Trends - 7. Asian Influence

Prada Spring 2013
Prada Spring/Summer 2013

Asian construction and prints have had a large influence for Spring/Summer 2013. If anything, attempting to dress yourself in a kimono inspired look will probably land you as the next fashionable person of the season. Prada’s Asian origami interpretation was by far one of the best for many. Prada is known as the eccentric girl who seems to appear unique and fashion forward no matter what. Miuccia knew what she was doing, mixing the 60s with an Asian spice that opened the doors to a softer Prada. Lanvin, a brand who is fit for a leading and self-assured princess, took the dark and seductive route. Dresses were all about construction and pattern rather than prints. Some ruffles decided to take a seasonal vacation here. Etro, the leaders of paisley, were all about the kimono printed top, showcasing the fashionable way of wearing the top.

Spring/Summer 2013 Trends - 6. Gladiator Heels

Have you though about what shoes to accessorize your outfit this spring? Well think no further, because the answer is quite simple. Gladiator heels were seen at very prestigious runways for Spring/Summer 2013. Altuzarra, a brand that has gotten popular over the course of the season, pleased us with their interpretation of its shoes, adding femininity and gracefulness. Versace delivered by far one of the best gladiator heels in their collection. As we know, Versace is known for being that provocative and liberal feline, which the shoes declared it all. The fringe detail and medusa stamp marked and outgoing accessory for those who adore to party. Salvatore Ferragamo decided to restrain on too much detail and focus on emphasizing structure, which crocodile had a good amount to say. Tom Ford was probably by far, the most talked designer of the moment. For those that don’t understand, his unique design of gladiator heels had a lot to talk on media. The shoes just declare authority and confidence, and by the way, they are available in black, silver, or stunning gold. 

Spring/Summer 2013 Trends - 5. Exceptional Bermuda Shorts

Spring/Summer 2013 could not be anything without shorts. This spring think top notch Bermuda shorts. The menswear inspired trend has been greater than ever, and just about any street style girl is eager to rock the look. Alexander Wang’s shorts were no doubt in the zone, delivering those tough deconstructed shorts anyone would be willing to wear to stay at the peak of its trend. DKNY presented a modern interpretation of the denim short, resembling those of past culottes, yet making the look flow with ease.  Nicholas K, first to open New York Fashion Week as usual, gave a semi-draped feel to the camel colored shorts. Others such as Rag & Bone, remained at the top with its tender blue Bermudas fit for most ladies.

Spring/Summer 2013 Trends - 4. Stripes! Stripes! Stripes!

Marc Jacobs Spring 2013
Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2013

Stripes have proven to by far the most dominant factors of Spring/Summer 2013. Just about every major runway show, there has been some sort of stripes present in a collection. Let’s recall Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer2013 collection, which was full of stripes. Mr. Jacobs certainly knew how to attract us to those stripes that we’d be willing to go to prison if those white/black dresses were worn there. Michael Kors play on stripes and design gave him a new uplift to become the talk of the town (in absolute positive manners). Moschino certainly knew they had to do something to offer the best stripes in town in their own method. Stripes were put in a manner that you would be able to tell right away who you're wearing….an adventurous an blissful girl that all she needs is her lollipop.

Spring/Summer 2013 Trends - 3. Le Smoking

Saint Laurent Spring 2013

In 1966 Yves Saint Laurent introduced “le smoking,” which became a synonymous symbol for the designer and the brand itself. The sexier interpretation on menswear for women brought new codes to women’s daily lifestyle. Spring/Summer 2013 runways were full of inspirational “smokings.” Hedi Slimane new director of Saint Laurent showed one of the best luscious fitted jackets that only the house of YSL was once a legend of. Pure Saint Laurent DNA was written all over the collection, reminding us of how seductive a tuxedo can actually be for a woman. Raf Simons new director of Dior did not leave the roots of the house behind as well. He interpreted the feminine suits that were tailored so impeccably, just as Mr. Christian Dior had once done when running his brand. Stella McCartney opted to present a slouchier version of the iconic smokings, giving it a more athletic and street style kick.

Spring/Summer 2013 Trends - 2. Beloved Ruffles

Gucci Spring 2013
Gucci Spring/Summer 2013

Ruffles have proven to be the star of season for spring/summer 2013, but take in consideration that the spring ruffles should declare serenity more than drama. Some designers chose to add small layer of this design and extend them into longer waves, maintaining a classical feel. Gucci’s sophisticated ruffles proved just how luxurious an effortless dress or top could be. Peter Pilotto’s extravagant layered prints maintained the level of modernism without being too loud spoken. Givenchy’s inspired catholic roots added a purification touch that any would be willing to wear to clear their sins. Isabel Marant decided to present a classical ruffled blouse in a jolly manner.

Chanel's Sassy Lego Purses

Chanel Lego clutch
New Chanel Lego clutch presented at Chanel's Spring/Summer 2013 collection.

Karl Lagerfeld always manages to be on top of his game when it comes to imagination. His imagination and creativity is what has earned him the respect that many of us have had towards him. Chanel is about the only brand in my opinion who can deliver a presentation of over 80 designs without disappointing us. Its Spring/Summer 2013 collection was no different. Its iconic tweed jackets were upgraded to what I like to call it ‘Oversize Me!’ Pearls were the main attraction of the show, and as we knew it, and upgrade to the jacket also had to come with another treat….one of a kind bags. I honestly don’t know where else you could find a Lego clutch or hula-hoop inspired handbag. Only Chanel is the place to seek for those one of a kind treats.

Top 10 Fall/Winter 2012 Trends - 10. Fur of Arms

Jason Wu Fall 2012
Jason Wu Fall/Winter 2012

I cannot think of any woman who has secretly thought about how luxurious fur would look on her. I state ‘secretly,’ because I know some do ponder whether they want to or not. Fur has always been contemplated as the queen of fashion, for luxury is written all over her. This season fur has been seen on the runway of top brands in a very distinctive way. Instead of concentrating on a full fur coat, several designers decided to focus solely on the arms. I, in general appreciated how impeccable fur looks mixed with leather and other prints.

Top 10 Fall/Winter 2012 Trends - 9. Black

Calvin Klein Fall/Winter 2012

Black was probably a trend you were surprise it had not been posted yet. There are times when we wouldn’t like to mention black as a trend, for a trend is something occurring during a particular season which later fades. We would consider black to be a style statement more than a trend, but for most of the fashion world, it is described as the must have trend of the season. We can’t argue about this, because we do appreciate articles of black gemstones in our wardrobe from time to time. Don’t we?

Top 10 Fall/Winter 2012 Trends - 7. Military Ladies

Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2012

Military designs were presented in a vast selection throughout Fashion Week. Last season they proved to be popular, and this fall they proved to be supreme, for they returned again as one of the top trends of the season. You will view street style girls wearing military inspired designs, and you probably have already seen it around your town. There are so many military frames within this trend you can choose from. Would you rather go boyish, feminine, or naughty?

Red has become the new black, so do not be afraid to dress in this color from head to toe. As many know, red is known to be the color of dominance, which in our opinion doesn't need no order of trend.

Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear: Innocent Stripes

Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2013

We could say that the Marc Jacobs show was one of the shortest, yet most memorable shows during New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013. Mr. Jacobs has had a talent of hypnotizing us each season, for he leaves us like innocent children drooling over a piece of lollipop. This spring, the collection focused more on a 60s theme, presenting an interesting side to the Marc Jacobs woman we weren’t quite familiar with….until now.

Versace's Fall Fetish Accessories

Versace always finds a way to turn something so dark and unwanted into a sex symbol that would appear awkward when referred to the term "Gothic." Donatella makes sure somehow we turn something most of use wouldn't desire to be thought of, into that Gothic girl we would be willing to play the character.

The collection was as usual….fresh, young, and full of happiness.

Top 10 Fall/Winter Trends - 5. Oversize Me!

Oversized clothes have become a major fashion statement this season. Fashion magazines are loaded with huge coats that one would just think it looks wrong or bought on sale (for those who just buy for price and not size).  Certain houses decide to accept this trend in a sort of conservative touch, while others implement their avant-garde glam.Take a glance at some of the top designer coats.

5 Reasons Why You Should Wear a Clutch

A clutch has become by far one of the most symbolic symbols of fashion. Anna Dello Russo is probably the perfect girl to persuade you those reasons. I have included 5 positive reasons why you need to grab one ASAP (as soon as possible). Read my personal 5 reasons below.

Clutch gives more freedom
pH: The Berry
1. A clutch gives you more freedom to move around as much as you desire.

pH: the cherry blossom girl
2. A clutch looses that pain you would feel when carrying an excessive heavy bag.

3. A clutch looks so feminine when walking. It adds so much sophistication and power the way you decide to carry that clutch.

4. A clutch can be turned into a mini shoulder bag without having to hold it all the time.

5. A clutch can be used as a small accessory that still adds definition to your look when adding other bigger accessories, such as jewelry to your outfit.

Sexy Gladiators - Versace Spring/Summer 2013

Versace Spring/Summe 2013
Versace's Spring/Summer 2013 first outfit.

Versace has always been described as one of the most provocative fashion houses. This season there were no exceptions, for lace and gladiator princesses became the new lust to look after. The introduction of the first model wearing a black dress with lace running over her body and legs left very little to the imagination. Only a Versace girl is allowed to wear something like this, and with gladiator heels. The color palette centered more on the colors of the dessert (orange, cream, and warm blue), which brought a pleasant atmosphere to the show. The music and walk of the models all correlated exactly together to an “I don’t give a * what you think.” Donatella took a risk in introducing the crinkled silk effect dresses, describing the previous phrase. The slit dresses were all extraordinarily provocative, as for any women wearing it would need to take precautions of a wardrobe malfunction.

Top 10 Fall/Winter 2012 Trends - 4. 1920s Theme

The 1920s has had a big influence for New York designers and the rest of the fashion world. 20s evening attires, to a masculine style has been an inspiration for several designers. Don't forget that the 1920's were not only about the flapper dresses, they were a time when women (by the help of Mademoiselle Coco Chanel) became more rebellious and began to wear pants and dress like the men.

Accessory Obsessions

Prada accessories have become one of the seasons most wanted for fall. Beautiful jewelry embroidered bags will upgrade your outfit even more. Which shoes would you go for?
