Vanessa Bruno designed for the simple girl who attains “chic coolness” effortlessly. The vibe of the collection was light, easy and happy – every like that spring fashion should be. The fabrics were silky and soft with lots of airy movement and the overall look was pretty and rather bohemian. The show stoppers were definitely Bruno’s jacket and blazer designs.
Maison Martin Margiela
Margiela Spring 2013 was no fuss, no frill, straight to the point. The designs were simple but ultra sophisticated… certainly what we have come to expect from this fashion powerhouse. The palette was heavy on the neutrals, and the collection featured oversized t-shirts, elegant floor skimming evening gowns, and some knock-out leather items… not to the mention the classic separates.
Yamamoto gave us a diverse mix of styles, silhouettes and inspirations this Spring. Some of these included seeming military inspiration, lots of laying and a nod to casual beach days. Just as we can expect, Yamamoto threw in some of his signature blazer styles as well as a variety of sheer pieces. Done in a neutral color palette, featuring gray, khaki, black and cream, Yamamoto’s focus was asymmetry and we noticed.
