I am loving everything about Autumn this year.
Monday, October 8, 2012
From New York to London to Milan to Paris. I loved a lot of the collections for Spring/Summer 2013. There were favorites (Dior, Proenzo, Dries, Christopher Kane), but there were plenty of great looks to choose from across the board. Below are some highlights with a brief encapsulation of my thoughts.
Alexander McQueen: Bees Knees? More like most fashionable beekeeper you've ever come across.
Altuzarra: Editors' favorite. Look out for those coats come spring.
Balenciaga: Sexy ruffles, structured ruffles.
Bottega Veneta: Vintage with a modern armor in the details. Dresses women will want to wear.
Burberry Prorsum: Color and urban elegance.
Celine: I got the pajama vibe, but ultra modern and strikingly sexy. I didn't care for the fuzzy slippers.
Christopher Kane: Gosh, those dresses with the taped appliques were great. And the origami ones, too.
Narciso Rodriguez: Back on the radar with a collection everybody seemed to love.
Ohne Titel: The CFDA finalists provided some great options for daywear with color and structure.
Prada: I got the grown-Lolita-moves-to-Japan-and-becomes-jaded vibe.
Proenzo Schouler: This dress was one of my favorite looks of the season.
Saint Laurent: Back to boho chic. New designer, nostalgic designs.
Stella McCartney: Athleticism goes chiffon. Color and paneling that exudes optimism and confidence.

Dries Van Noten: Always a favorite. Some called it "grunge goes couture", I call it brilliant design for women.
