Fashion Week is in full swing and fall 2013 collections are getting my juices flowing. Menswear inspired hits the runway in a big, bad way and I am loving how designers are maintaining enough femininity, keeping the silhouettes and draping sexy. BCBG Max Azria, my absolute favorite show so far, “brought about a collection that was decidedly more street than sweet” according to style.com. “It was refreshing when a few of the more pared-down pieces, including a clean mesh tuxedo tank, came down the runway. In general, this piled-up, coat-centric look advanced a tougher, more urban version of the BCBG woman.” I’m pretty sure I’d wear every single look in their collection. Other trends for fall are oversize coats, turtlenecks, quilted pieces and leopard spots prevail (yay!). The designers that I think presented wearable fashion (so far) include Billy Reid, Yigal Azrouel, Veronica B. Vallenes (Copenhagen) and Rag & Bone. Mara Hoffman killed it, but her overall color palette (for me) was a bit bright for the season. I did die for a few things though (see below). Things are looking really good so far and so much more to come. J.Crew, Michael Kors and Rachel Zoe in the coming days. Exciting stuff!
This is the first time that I’ve taken a deep dive into fashion week, but within the last few months I’ve become inspired by fashion again (this blog is a result of the surge as well). I’ve never completely departed from my obsession, but there has definitely been a period where needing to be up in it wasn’t a huge priority (life happens and sometimes our passions shift around, right?). Well – that my friends, has passed and I am definitely back at it! I’m excited to bring this information to you and hope you enjoy the highlights because my favorite part about this journey is the ability to take the knowledge that I gain and send it forward. Some of my fave’s from fall 2013 below and you can click on the designers name to see complete collection and/or reviews! I’d love to hear what you think! Happy Fashion Week!
