NYFW Spring 2013 RTW

In my opinion this years spring collections were stepping aside from the usual ditsy prints and flowy skirts into a structured and sophisticated territory. After seasons of bold colours and bright patterns, this spring radiated black and white. The strong contrast between the hues made for a striking look. Although the looks were black and white, patterns really took control of the outfits. I feel if these same looks were done with bright colours the patterns, prints and textures would be slightly discarded. 
Alexander Wang - Burberry Prorsum - Christian Dior

Voluminous structure was a daring sight this fashion week. Many designers chose to focus more on a blown out silhouette oppose to other things. Alexander Wang and Burberry Prorsum proposed a futuristic, blown out look while Dior went back to a 60's silhouette with a full, voluminous skirt. Either way I think a bold structure is the way to go this spring.

Oscar De La Renta - Givenchy - Balenciaga - Ralph Lauren

Frills and ruffles have been spring stables for years and this year was absolutely no exception. 
Ruffles are the perfect expression of feminism. They are presented subtlety by Givenchy with a ruffled neckline on a pastel dress. However Oscar De La Renta and Balenciaga produced loud and again voluminous ruffles that were more like the centrepiece of the look. Ralph Lauren brought back the drop waist and added ruffles to the bottom of a simple blue dress, making for a classic piece. 

Tom Ford -  Oscar De La Renta - Elie Saab - Carolina Herrera - Carolina Herrera - Christian Dior

Sheer, of course, was a big hit this season. From detailed and fitted pieces by Oscar De La Renta and Carolina Herrera to soft, flowing silhouettes by Tom Ford, Elie Saab, Carolina Herrera and Christian Dior. Soft, sheer fabrics are sexy yet classy. Whether its a panel or a full dress, sheer is gonna be a big trend.

Stepping aside from feminine details, spring 2013 was endowed with strong suits. These suits were not your ordinary, working class suits. These suits are structured to fit perfectly to present a strong, feminine front. Elie Saab shows you don't  always need a long trouser to pull of a suit, the peplum jacket was paired with shorts to give a flirty, professional vibe. Although Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren and Givenchy used pants with the suits, the block colour added a touch of sophistication. Carolina Herrera's suit was the most feminine of all these suits, the high slit and pop of red really brought it to life.
