Spring Summer 2013 Collections

Text: Ioanna Karagiorgou

 

We may still be in the winter but we can’t stop looking at the amazing S/S 2013 Collections. My mind is blown away, just like yours I imagine, I can’t wait for a summer full of style options to choose.

 

Dries Van Noten

Amazing 90s elements mixed with laid back attitude and transparent pieces for a touch of summer sexiness, making us want to buy everything!

 

3.1 Phillip Lim

This collection has a 90s touch as well, but with a more upbeat approach, and various pattern mixes.

 

Haider Ackermann


Dark colors, mixed with Japanese pieces (the obi-like belts) and forms that remind us of martial arts uniforms, opens the way for an ”Far Eastern ” summer.

 

Prada


In the same way Prada, interprets the Japanese sense of this summer in a dark way, as well, but with a sporty touch and more intense forms in the silhouette.

 

Jen Kao


Asymmetrical cuts and origami-like folds, but with sport elements, the designer continues the Japanese feeling of the season

 

Altuzzara


In a completely different sense, this collection, with the gladiator shoes being the absolute summer accessories, is very tailored, with a more chic approach to
the summer mood.

 

Mary Katrantzou


Amazing silhouettes and patterns, as always, the designer follows her individual style and suggests playful pieces for the hot days.

 

Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière


Lot of skin exposure, but in a chic way, is combined with strong forms and lots of ruffles.

 

Proenza Schouler


Prints and leathers in intense colors is the main characteristic of this collection, adding a lot of red, greek and yellow tones in our summer clothes.
