Four Spring Trends to Look Forward To (Courtesy of Our Very Own Anne Parker and New York Fashion Week)

17 Sep


Hello DD readers!  

It’s 7FAM’s very own Anne Parker making a brief cameo this week to chat up all the fab fashions from New York Fashion Week. No, my feet still haven’t forgiven me for the seven day regimen of stiletto heels, but then again what’s a little pain when you have the opportunity to rub shoulders with Joe Zee and Nina Garcia? Between all the parties and style stalking (yes, Zombie Boy, that was me trying to not look awkwardly obvious as I snuck a pic of you in between glasses of champagne), I found oodles of inspiration that left me excited to share…and our creative director more than a little annoyed with the number of texts and emails I kept sending with “helpful” suggestions for our upcoming spring/summer collection.

So what’s tops on my list for 2013? Here’s a quick rundown:

Sheer Lace — there’s sexy and then there’s sexy. Don’t know the difference? Let designers like Jason Wu and Jill Stuart be your guide. Using vintage lingerie as a point of reference, several of the biggest names in the fashion scene have combined sheer fabrics with lace insets to create the ultimate in peek-a-boo chic.

Bold+Muted — THE hottest look for spring, get ready for soft neutrals amped up against bright prints and colors. I loved what I saw at the Richard Chai Love and Sophie Theallet shows, and I can’t wait to play with all our denim palettes and see what magic we can make using this trend as a point of inspiration.

Geometric Cuts, Patterns and Prints — My love of all things geometric runneth over. Hot on the heels of summer’s big geometric jewelry trend comes cuts, silhouettes and prints with an edge – literally. Nobody does it better than Vivienne Tam, but I’m betting London and Paris Fashion Weeks will bring out some tough contenders.

Black and White — So classic it hurts. Philip Lim, Marc Jacobs and Rachel Zoe were just some of the heavy hitters who relied on traditional men’s tailoring to create dynamic looks from this chic yet simple color palette.

Overall, this fashion week proved to be one of the most wearable in a long time, so prep those credit cards, kiddies and get ready for the ultimate spring fling with your closet!
