NEW YORK FASHION WEEK AW13

Alice & Olivia

Stacey Bendet presented a fusion of textures, colours and prints for her eclectically opulent AW13 collection. Cropped beaded cardigans, little black lace party dresses, zebra-shaped bags, printed cocktail frocks and floral skirt suits were held together by the brand’s trademark feminine aesthetic. A primarily autumnal colour palette was injected with jewel hued flashes of ruby, sapphire, emerald and gold. Floor length contemporary ball gowns and skirts further emphasised the lavish maximalist approach that Bendet favours. Floral hair garlands finished the collection with a youthful, feminine air.

Helmut Lang

Never straying far from their trademark androgynous outerwear; Michael and Nicole Colovos presented a graphic collection inspired by Cubism and the works of Pablo Picasso. Layering was key, with printed shift dresses and boxy T-shirts styled over slim fitting black jersey tees. Sleek silhouettes prevailed throughout the collection, with drainpipe trousers and structural jackets grounding the graphic prints. The Colovos’ know who their disciples are and what they want; offering up laser-cut leather detailing and a predominantly muted colour palette.

Diane von Furstenberg
Citing David Bowie as the inspiration behind her AW13 collection, Diane von Furstenberg showcased a homage to 1970s high octane glamour. The iconic printed wrap dresses featured heavily, adorned in what von Furstenberg termed herself as “leopard bark" – a pattern fusing colourful leopard print with organic references. From elegant printed silk jumpsuits, to flowing jewel hued gowns and head-to-toe printed looks; the collection took us back to the designer’s hey days at the legendary Studio 54.
