The look: sweet like sugar kisses, with confetti tweed jackets and miniskirts, match stick jeans, floral lace coats, cardigans with jewel details and shirts with scalloped collars. This is truly an uber cuteness collection from Kate Spade New York. I really love the color palette, candy pink, mint green, orange whip, dan lemon, mixed with floral pattern.
Last but not least, check out the cute bags and clutches. There were plastic wicker totes in bright colors, clutches dotted with bows or shaped like cat’s eye glasses, and picnic basket as purse. Love them all!

Jason Wu Spring Summer 2013: Really Provocative

Tags

He’s one of my favorite designer. Jason Wu always know how to combine feminine look and masculine, just like his latest Spring Summer 2013 collections at New York Fashion Week. Provocation isn’t traditionally part of Jason Wu’s arsenal, yet he poured it on this collection.

Accessorizing his mostly nude and black collection with leather harnesses, black net veils, and the deep red lipstick. Lace and leather predominated and often came togerher, as they did on a backless black apron dress with laser-cut flowers at the hem.

The tailoring, was a strength. A pair of narrowly cut jumpsuits and a sleeveless blouse tucked into high waisted stovepipe trousers created the androgyny look. Sexy and provocative!

Prabal Gurung Resort 2013: Beauty In Motifs

This collection was inspired with Prabal Gurung’s recent trip home to Nepal and provided the Rorschach-like motif combined with tribal and flora motifs. A black and white double-layer dress had a graphic punch, as did another A-line frock in blue and tomato red. Those colors turned up again in the knitwear and his pants—a little bit stretchy, slightly flared—do a great business too.

Daring and edgy, this collection epitomize the princesses of pop culture. Donatella Versace named it Rockmantic, with collections from short, sharp, sexy, tailored jackets to pants and leather sheaths. She also borrowed some key motifs of the eighties, like Keith Haring’s radiant heart, laser-cut onto lace, silk, and leather, also graphics such as flowers and guitars. Then, she added a little heavy metal, in the form of copper beads and a pair of ankle boots with stiletto heels.

Monochromatic color scheme, a cropped bomber, tunic, and tapered pants combo looked particularly on trend. Really simple, sophisticated, but also flirtatious at the same time. This collection consists of a sheer top, a chiffon shirt dress with accordion pleats at the skirt, and also a pair of high-waisted trousers.

Prints have been a trademark since DVF’s 1970’s launch, and the range in this collection was impressive. But the strong, suprising color combinations also getting the most notice. DVF combined bright tuxedo blazer with pale trousers or mini skirts, and there were also printed blazer paired with different kinds of motif.

This Resort collection from Gucci reinterprets the Flora Print, which originally lifted from a fifties Gucci scarf made for Grace Kelly. Creative director Frida Giannini designed sixties-ish shift dresses in solid shades of yellow, turquoise green, and raspberry. But the real star of the collection was obviously the Flora Print that turned up on everything, from a white linen peacoat, black trousers, to the hem of a strapless silk jersey dress.

Looks like Marc Jacobs has created this “put-together” idea fits. A very sweet and feminine collection with layered style. A drop-waist printed silk dress worn over matching cropped pantas, an elongated vest and flared trousers, also a sheared mink in the color of candy pink. Not to forget, the towering straw platforms accompanied many of the looks.

Tangerine is by far this year’s juiciest color on the runways. From shorts to dresses, skirts and pants, this happy color can also look good with other bright colors such as fuchsia, yellow, and green. For more neutral look, try combine it with black and darker shades of blue or white and off-white.

Tangerine can be worn in quantity if you have Black, Olive, Peach or Cream colored skin tones. Tangerine is a brilliant color that attracts a lot of attention. Gold jewelry compliments all shades of Tangerine. A Tangerine accessory such as a handbag, tie, or belt makes a bold fashion statement that’s sure to get you noticed.
