The Ready to Wear Fall 2013 shows have come and gone and with it some truly great collections. Here are the top 10 trends that came out of New York, London, Milan and Paris. These looks are simply Ah-mazing!
Girls who like Boys: It’s official - menswear is the look for Fall 2013. A number of collections featured it with the designs from No. 21 in Milan being some of the best.
The Color and The Shape: Embracing the future can be a bit unnerving but thank goodness designers don’t feel that way with shows like the one from Bottega Veneta in Milan that featured strong architectural lines and bold colors.
Un-fur-gettable: One of the most played around fabrics at the Fall 2013 shows was fur. From color to shape, it was all about letting it fly like at the Milan show from Krizia.
The Skin You’re In: For those who want something less dramatic but still luxurious there’s the leather pieces that came down the runways - like at Jo No Fui in Milan - where it was skin on skin on skin.
The Craft: One aesthetic that stood out at the Fall 2013 shows was the strong craftsmanship designers showed like Derek Lam did in New York.
The Comfort Factor: Who says you can’t have your fashion and your cake as well? Looks like the ones from Rodebjer in New York were all about easy lines.
It’s a Marshmallow World: Many designers went with softer shades and there was lots of outerwear in pale shades such as this snow-colored coat from J. JS Lee’s London collection.
Dare to be Square: Another trend that came on strong was plaid, tartan and everything else in that family. It was demure in New York, as seen in Victoria Beckham’s show, but took off like a rocket in London.
All is Bright: It might be solid, boxy silhouettes but part of us still wants that sparkle and designer Wang Peiyi gave a bit of an “under the sea” feel at his Paris show.
Portrait of a Lady: Yes, it’s all about menswear but there was also looks that brought to mind those classic feminine looks from the bygone era like this look from the London show of Emilia Wickstead.
The pick for the favorite collection of the entire season is coming up!
