Paris Spring 2013 Ready-to-Wear Runway Report

Louis Vuitton Spring 2013 RTW

Felipe Oliveira Baptista

Designers ushered in their love of contrast for the Spring 2013 Paris Ready-to-Wear collections.  Subtle tints were pitted against electric hues in a number of different runway shows to create lively color trends.  Louis Vuitton’s canary yellow contrasted subdued tans and slate grays.  Felipe Oliveira Baptisa sent out muted blues alongside blazing corals and military greens.  Stark blacks and crisp whites also dominated this season’s runway color story.

Guy Laroche

Stella McCartney

Conservative silhouettes were apparent in the boxy crewnecks of Guy Laroche, geometric layering of Stella McCartney and modest hem lengths of many others.  Not to fret though.  For those with an appetite for a dash of sex appeal in their fashion, sheer breezy fabrics were abundant and were often complemented by geometric cutouts in detailing.

L’Wren Scott

Julien David

Geometry was a big hit in patterning.  Not to worry though, our brilliant designers took care of the mind melting mathematics for us.  Easy plaids, checks, and stripes were prominent in this spring runway show.  Geometric prints in general were a big hit and added a retro-chic element to collections like Louis Vuitton, L’ Wren Scott and Julien David.

It’s really difficult for me to say anything bad about runway collections, as I adore new ideas and understanding the inspiration derivatives of other designers.  This runway was spectacular and really appealed to me because of all of the fantastic color presence.
