Spring 2013

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.

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

Alexander McQueen
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
 Bottega Veneta: Vintage with a modern armor in the details. Dresses women will want to wear.

Burberry Prorsum
 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
 Christopher Kane: Gosh, those dresses with the taped appliques were great. And the origami ones, too.

Narciso Rodriguez
 Narciso Rodriguez: Back on the radar with a collection everybody seemed to love.

Ohne Titel
 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
 Proenzo Schouler: This dress was one of my favorite looks of the season.

Saint Laurent
 Saint Laurent: Back to boho chic. New designer, nostalgic designs.

Stella McCartney

Stella McCartney: Athleticism goes chiffon. Color and paneling that exudes optimism and confidence.

A Summer on the Dolce Coast

After a month long absence, I wanted to begin my posts on fashion week with a clever and beautiful interpretation of the Dolce and Gabbana show. Diana from the blog Miss Moss does these wonderfully artistic color comparisons, and this is one of my favorites. She took looks from the show and coupled them with vintage travel posters. The result is a great artistic interpretation of the theme of the show. A couple of my favorite looks are below and the rest can be found here.

Weekend Photographic Inspiration

Although I find clothes and art beautiful, nothing can floor me like a stunning scenic vista. I grew up around a lot of nature, and I find the most inspiration in mountains, rivers, lakes, etc. Below are some beautiful photos of natural beauty I stumbled upon online, and some style inspiration to accompany them. The last image is an Andrew Nuding photograph.
