It would be impossible for me to share my thoughts on every Fall 2013 RTW collection, but here are two more designer bits.
Alice+Olivia’s collection wasn’t entirely my cup of tea,(just not into those short short skirts) but I was primarily struck by the styling. The show was presented against a backdrop resembling a particularly lush drawing room with stunning wallpaper and draperies. Mostly what I loved was the touch of romantic/ethnic details and the soft milkmaid braid hairdos.
Anna Sui, per usual, showed a collection both blinding and intriguing at the same time. For Fall 2013, she was inspired by the modernism of Godard films and threw in a dash of dolly, maltese crosses, and custom-knit hosiery, and shoes!. Oh, the hosiery and shoes… I was a big big fan of Anna Sui early on in my fashion-eque career; I’ve veered away a bit, but there is something about her that just keeps dragging me back in spirit if not in practice.
I’ll discuss London Fashion Week next time.
