Jean-Paul Gaultier’s SS2013 show took a giant leap away from the minimalism we have seen on the runway. The show was an homage to the 1980s glam-rock, pop fashion that once bombarded our runways and our streets. Inspired by looks from Michael Jackson to David Bowie, Gaultier’s unique and eccentric collection is a breath of fresh air.
CHLOE’S SS’13 IS SOFT AND FEMININE
October 2nd, 2012
For Chloe’s 60th birthday, the SS’13 line rung true to its feminine style: lace and frills. But in this line, a tight rope was kept on the feminine aspects, using them to create belled and voluminous shapes while also utilizing their charm as an added embellishment to the minimalism that crept into the line. It was the evening wear that allowed the girly girl to spread her wings and fly, with ruffles, soft pink and gold and to top the look off, shiny red shoes.

Gareth Pugh’s SS’13 collection exudes not only a mass amount of creative energy but inspiration for days. With references of Diane Pernet, YSL, and Latina comstumes of the 40′s, Pugh continues to push the boundaries of fashion and is certainly a force to be reckoned with.
