  2. Peter Pilotto :: Spring RTW 2013

    December 11, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    A visual feast of collaged imagery on flat fabrics and dimensional ruffles and flounces saturate Peter Pilotto’s Spring Ready-to-wear 2013 collection. Patterns are also built up with beadwork and embroidery, setting this collection apart from the blast of dazzling printed fabrics that have been hitting the runways for seasons


  3. Mother of Pearl :: Resort 2013

    December 4, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Mother of Pearl paired with British artist Gary Hume for their debut Resort 2013 collection. Hume’s paintings are distinguished by their vibrant color palette and simple imagery depicting flora and fauna, as well as portraits. Mother of Pearl transforms Hume’s work into sensationally stylized floral garments, adding flair to a basic pair of jogging pants and sweaters. Oh yeah, did you see the collar tassels!

     


  4. Dries Van Noten :: Spring RTW 2013

    November 27, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Sheer flannels mixed with large floral patterns in a color palette ranging from deep blues, reds and purples to blush pinks and periwinkle blues. The Spring Ready-to-Wear ’13 collection from Dries Van Noten harmonizes femininity with grunge icon Kurt Cobain perfectly. 


  5. Cacharel :: Resort 2013

    November 20, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Anyone for a quick game of tennis? These sporty chic garments from Cacharel Resort 2013 offer soft silhouettes with cinched waist lines with patterns jumping from itty bitty pastel floral prints to brilliant kaleidoscopic florals.


  6. Yvonne Kwok :: Graduation

    November 13, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    As a graduate from the Amsterdam Fashion Institute, designer Yvonne Kwok‘s final show is quite impressive; mixing soft flowing fabrics with rigid architectural pleats, candy-coated shades with muted natural tones. I particularly love the loose-fitting corset embroidered with thick thread matching the structure of pleating.


  7. Thakoon Addition :: Spring RTW 2013

    November 6, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    A touch of Americana, this collection from Thakoon Addition reminds me of a simple American girl in a small midwestern town. Soft, feminine and cute are certainly words to describe their Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear collection, with combinations of micro-florals, imitation denim, eyelet dresses and tops immersed in a pastel palette with hints of oranges, fuchsia and cerulean blues. 


  8. SUNO :: Resort 2013

    October 30, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    Plaid, stripes, florals, oh my! Pattern play is my favorite, who cares if it doesn’t match in the traditional sense. Suno Resort 2013 is all about mixing patterns to create a funky, youthful look. On top of the patterns these garments have great texture from lace to sequins; as well as a mixture of silhouettes from cinched waist to A-line dresses. 


  9. Matthew Williamson :: Spring RTW 2013

    October 23, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    The Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear collection from Matthew Williamson is adorned with saturated colors either running down the length of the garment as well as bright, tweedy weaves inspired by traditional Indian tapestries. The collection eludes to digital degradation with the tight pixel-like weaves and washed out saturated colors. 


  10. Natalia Grzybowski :: Spring/Summer 2012

    October 16, 2012 by Erin Fletcher

    In her Spring/Summer 2012 collection Hybrid, designer Natalia Grzybowski re-defines our visual interpretation of the ‘female cyber-organism’ combining natural, synthetic and technological elements to create a hybrid female body: part human, part botanic. Using minimalist silhouettes with soft angles inspired by flower structures in order to flatter the feminine shape without over sexualizing it; the garments are then printed with enhanced historical botanical imagery.
