Now that Paris Fashion Week is winding down, we can reflect back on the weeks and weeks of runway shows, designer spotlights and trend forecasting. But before we close the chapter entirely on the Spring/Summer 2013 season, let’s take a look at some of the bizarre headwear that made its way down the runway this past month.
Man, I thought New York Fashion Week had some zany looks on the runway, but the designers across the pond just might have us beat. Click through to check out 10 crazy outfits from London Fashion Week (including a few that are NSFW-ish), and what we can only assume the models must be thinking while wearing them…
Suits — so boring, I know. Which is why we were stoked to see so many new and creative iterations of suiting in the spring/summer shows at New York Fashion Week. Check out a few of our favorites after the jump!
Florals were everywhere this season but employed in a variety of ways. At Prabal Gurung, the flowers were bright and graphic, while Suno’s florals were muted and pale. And at Duro Olowu, the florals offered a cheery pop of color. Check out our gallery of some of our favorite floral looks and let us know what you think in the comments.
Cutouts are a simple way to add a little sex appeal to an outfit. Which is probably why they were so prominent in the spring/summer 2013 collections presented at New York Fashion Week. From body-sculpting slashes and patterns, to more random and spontaneous marks, whether you prefer a peekaboo style, or a more geometric skin exposure, you can find it in the latest runway looks from designers like Alexander Wang, Victoria Beckham and Thakoon.
At the risk of sounding a bit too “New York Times discovers dresses,” we’d like to point out that some of our favorite fashion moments this past NYFW were the maxi dresses and gowns. As is traditional, everyone from Prabal Gurung to Mara Hoffman to Monique Lhuillier created dramatic moments with long dresses. So we’ve picked a few (okay more like 20) of our favorites for your perusal. Check ‘em out above!
My favorite thing about fashion week is the craaaazy things designers parade down the runways in an effort to stand out, like bondage hula skirts and models with giant, eye-less lizard heads. My second favorite thing is looking at the season’s fresh crop of breathtakingly opulent gowns, and the Spring/Summer 2013 collections didn’t disappoint. Here are 21 of the most gorgeous gowns that showed up on the runways this week, many of which quite literally made my jaw drop when I saw them. So. Freakin’. Beautiful. Click through to see for yourself!
As New York Fashion Week slogs on, we’ve seen some commonalities emerge between designers. Besides all employing desperately skinny models, we’ve noticed other similarities between collections. Like white. It was everywhere on the runway this NYFW, in flowing dresses, in surprising suiting — and in inexplicable hat/dress combos (we’re looking at you, Prabal Gurung). Check out our gallery of the best white runway looks.
We had a bit of catching up to do after the weekend, so today we’re showing you Christian Siriano, Victoria Beckham, Catherine Malandrino, Ostwald Helgason, Diane von Furstenberg and my personal fave, Duro Olowu. So many shows, so little time! Check out all the collections after the jump! Keep reading »
