This years collections have been over run with blasts from the pasts in design and color from the 20’s-1960’s. Colors have mostly been light blue, Cobalt blue, Persimmon and Burnt Umber with a dash of lime and forest green (Calvin Klein collection).
Thankfully a break in the horizon of fashion has come with the always dashing and daring, Gareth Pugh.
His collection steps out of the norm to bring non-traditional minimalism. Full of monochromatic modernist beauty with a dash of midnight blue. An ethereal quality to his designs based more on draping and material instead patterns, and flashes of 60’s jewels and glitz.
As always his collection sets a futuristic tone that has dominated Paris Fashion Week.
After all he is the indomitable. Gareth Pugh.

We all know Karl Lagerfeld is relentless, superior, eccentric and bit of freak chic. With this years SS 2013 collection on a runway dotted with wind tunnels and eco fab, he is now insurmountable aka no one can bring it like he does.
Recreating the 80’s-90’s with a new and fresh twist Karl Lagerfeld focused on material and recreation of shape for SS 2013. Always an original he crossed pattern with shape making the figure less of a focus and focusing on big, bulky, large and fab! Always an original, he even added a little humor with his own take on obtuse bags, giving the house of Chanel a complete WIN!
Let’s take a look shall we;
(Forgive the late posting darlings, I am felled by the evilest of fever flu’s. If I don’t make sense chalk it up to my fever of 100 F)
In case you have not heard, Karl Lagerfield is a demi-god. He runs the House of Chanel creating and breaking the boundaries of ways to look at fashion.
He has done it again with an overly opulent show and gem studded runway. The towering crystals were laid on a runway tinted with purple hues that reflected in his collection. This is the dramatic arts cutting edge.
