For Resort '14 Moschino Cheap & Chic's design team turned the hands of time back to the summer of '67, taking inspiration from the distinctively West Coast, love-in vibe that emanated out of places like Berkley and Haight-Ashbury at the time.
Four cities, one season: Fall 2013. Nemo kicked the collections off and every city to follow added its own dose of wintry chill. Somehow all that cold weather caused a discernible note of restraint to float through the collections. Don’t worry--the passion and excitement were still there, but designers actively pursued defining new ways we can really dress next fall. These looks felt grounded in the return of the “Lady," as fashion’s pendulum swung away from the risqué, toward the refreshingly refined (spike-studded shoulders be damned). Check out our top trends for fall in the slide show.
London fashion week is officially a wrap, but before we say "Cheerio" to that city and "Buon giorno" to Milan, let's check out some of the beauty looks from Erdem to Preen and everything in between. Proceed, but please mind the gap.
Playing the name game in London is far from easy: So many cool young designers, so many unusual names, and only a week to make sense of them all. It’s largely due to the aversion many Brit design talents have to being crafted into the sort of the fashion celebs we adore stateside. No worries; the clothes spoke volumes for themselves, as London dialed down the quirked, and turned out one of the most sophisticated seasons in recent years. See for yourself!
Punk was definitely in the air at the Moschino Cheap & Chic show this afternoon. It was in the thumping soundtrack, the black lipstick, the models' piercings, and even in the audience. We counted three full size neon mohawks, about 50 nose rings and unlimited tattoos before the show even started.
Pre-Fall 2013 has wrapped!...or has it?...Nobody can quite say for sure, but with the Fall 2013 shows quickly approaching in mid-February, we figured now was as good a time as any to take inventory of our favorites from “the season between seasons."
