It’s a Wrap : 10 things I learned from Fashion Week FW2013

March 10, 2013

The beauty about fashion is that every season, things change, models dissappear and new faces and norms emerge. For this season, although designers seemed to be in a less inspiring mood than the spring shows, we got to see new trends/faces emerging.

1. Chloe Norgaard and hair as the ultimate accesory: After Charlotte Free, this model gave us a signature hair look that gave her a well deserved 15 minute of fame, from Moschino to Proenza Schouler, Chloe’s rainbow hair was a living proof that color is alive.

2. It’s a FunFur: Peta lovers won’t be happy, as fur is still dominant this season. Playful accesories (Chanel hats, Wang’s boxer gloves and even Fendi’s very furry hair) stood out.

3.Tying the knot: Wrapped around the waist, in all sizes, the knot seemed to emerge as some kind of a new fetish that i really appreciated in Philo’s Celine and Givenchy’s rockers.

4. Tartan: Brits were never especially renowned for their exquisite elegance, however something tells me their punk influence made the cut, with tartan ever dominating the catwalk in all fashion capitals.

5. Go big or go home: Big, bold and beautiful. Size will always matter especially when it comes to cool prints as seen in Mary Katrantzou or Comme des Garcons.

6. Like a prayer: For some fashion is a religion and what better proof than the Italian boys’ hommage to Virgin Mary and christian references.

7. Wang does it better: Many changes occured the past few seasons, but among the 3 (Hedi Slimane, Raf Simons and Alexander Wang) it was Wang who proved that a fresh start is always possible.

8. Boots, start walking: thigh high boots became an obsession yet again.

9. Last night a PJ saved my life: Put on your night gown and be sexy was the message that Marc Jacobs infused both of his shows with.

10: It’s a wild blog world: Season after season, a new culture has evolved: the blogger mania. Outside those tents is where the attention has moved, commercialization of fashion or victims of ephemeral fame?  it’s up to you to decide.
