Spring and summer fashion is generally pretty predictable insofar as it is, well, summery — think airy, diaphanous fabrics in light, muted colors accented by eye-catching brights, and you’ve just about hit the nail on the head every time. As the S/S 2013 shows crop up, we get a good glimpse at what to expect come next year … and is it just me, or is it all turning out to be a bit darker than usual? That’s not to say that the season’s requisite lightness, comparably more cheerful than that of Autumn/Winter styles, has been sacrificed in favor of deeper, moodier hues; it’s just that all of the whites and pastels are offset by a whole lot of black. I’m the last to complain — black is the predominate color in my wardrobe — so yes, I am unquestionably biased, but I think the contrast serves to make the clothes all the more striking. Are you, like me, thrilled that some of your favorite black pieces might just make the spring/summer cut, or are you all about the whites and brights come June, regardless of what the runway dictates?

This is a photo from Walter Van Beirendonck’s runway show at Paris Fashion Week, but if you had told me it was a screenshot from a movie in which the protaganist was evading the villain by disguising himself as a shrub, I would have totally believed you. If movie logic holds, this model could plop down on the ground at any time, fold his legs under him, and everyone in the audience would look around and say, “Wait, where did he go? I could have sworn there was a male model on the runway, but now all I see is an immaculately pruned shrub.” Nice move, Van Beirendonck! Keep reading »
