A roundup of my SS13 favorites, not complete but it does sketch an image of what I love from all those collections! Going through all the collections there were quite a few surprises, but a few little disappointments as well. As you can see Proenza Schouler is a big favorite, I was just really ‘wow-ed’ by the perforated, colored and patchwork leather, the gorgeous prints, the interesting details and of course, the bags. But I also loooove what Stella is doing and her sporty chic and shapes are the best I’ve seen for SS13. Also adore 3.1 Phillip Lims collection that was really surprising and has so many different elements, especially the 3 looks I pictured above, wouldn’t mind wearing those at all! And then there was Céline.. Obviously and as expected the clothes are impeccable and even though I liked Fw12 better (Phoebe is going a bit more feminine and Margiela in SS13) the shoes startled me. I can’t say I’m a big fan of the health-shoe-look and furry lumpish pumps under gorgeous clean cut suits, but maybe that’s just me. Isabel Marant is not entirely my cup of tea for SS13, but I guess FW12 wasn’t either (even though when I finally got used to Western I started appreciating FW12 a lot more) and Alexander Wang did great innovations and gorgeous things but doesn’t have an immediate I-want-to-wear factor for me. Let me finish with the note that this roundup is a little incomplete but surely contains my absolute favorites. I could have put more Prabal in it, a little Rag & Bone, or Jil Sander, but I feel like above is a clear picture of what inspires me. Conclusion? Goodbye skinny jeans!
