Adds a Boho nonchalance to elegant shapes. Short tassel fringe is used to give dimension to miniskirts and sweaters, while long silky strands ornament hems or are sewn at necklines, where they provide a “built-in” jewelry look. The colors for this trend are a lot of neutrals as well as dark, bold colors as well as a few metallics.
Continuing with the Boho trend we are seeing Patchworked plaids, oversized jackets and clownish pants. Some tailored looks conjure Charlie Chaplin’s “little tramp” while others have dresses that seem pasted with discarded posters. With this trend we are seeing pops of blue and red though the overall palette consists of black, dark greys and blues.
Looking back to Pre-Fall 2013 trends we saw the XL colossal coat and here it is now as the must have object of desire. Some of the best for Fall 2013 are tailored woolen styles. While the shapes are relatively classic (double-breasted and to the knee or below) the specialness comes from gentle color, widened lapels, soft shoulders, blanket stripes or placed embroideries.
Vivid, saturated colors are making an impact on Paris F/W 13 runways. The hues conjure up painter’s pigments — cadmium yellow, ochre, alizarin crimson, thalo green — and are worked with each other or against neutrals like black or camel, giving classic Fall shapes a happy makeover.
The Haute Couture, with its rarefied aura, precise tailoring, handcrafted details and impossible swoops of fabric, is impacting Paris ready-to-wear this season. Its influence is felt in asymmetric draped details, ladylike gathers, and floor-sweeping sashes, but raw edges, denim and an un-precious attitude keep it all down to earth.
