Hermès - Spring 2013


The Hermès spring 2013 collection is breathtaking.  This particular collection by designer Christophe Lemaire was inspired by the luxury of travel. wrote, “Lemaire imagined the woman at the heart of today’s collection on a perpetual journey, so he slung a matching backpack over her dress in honeyed leather.”  We love the use of silk as well.  The fashion house’s famed printed silks were crafted into fluid tops, pants, and shorts.  It was a modern mix of prints and a stunning blue palette of aqua marines and cobalt blue.  The color blocked leather added an extra contemporary punch with clean lines and sophisticated pieces.  This is one journey we can’t wait to embark upon.

Carolina Herrera Fall 2013 Backstage

For her fall 2013 collection, Carolina Herrera imagined a heroine of the 1940s.  We were so excited to receive a special backstage peek of the models, clothing, accessories, and beauty trends at the show!  One of the collection’s major statements was certainly fur- in rich tones like turquoise.  Additionally, there was an emphasis on tiny waists and full skirts.  The collection left wondering: “Who knew Zuzanna Bijoch could do such a passable Katharine Hepburn?”

Fall 2013 Fashion Week Recap - DVF, Trina Turk, Tory Burch

DVF- fall 2013

Here are some of our favorites when it comes to recaps of fall 2013 collections for DVF, Trina Turk, and Tory Burch.

For DVF: “Every woman wants to be glamorous and rock ‘n’ roll,” Diane von Furstenberg told, “It’s not about going to a party. It’s life as a party.”  It was another successful glam rock collection for Furstenberg - wild with animal prints, her classic graphic wrap dresses, and touches of metallic and fur.  DVF’s fall 2013 collection is wearable, sexy, and of course - the epitome of hard rock glamour.

For Trina Turk: it was the designer’s first time to present at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.  The collection was certainly more streamlined, rich, and seventies-inspired with less Palm Springs flair.  “It’s a conscious decision to upgrade,” Trina Turk told, “We’re taking ourselves a little more seriously and felt this was worthy of being shown on a larger scale.”  The rich purple and reds, gorgeous tweeds and trousers have left us longing to shop our Trina Turk boutique at Highland Park Village this autumn.

For Tory Burch: Tory Burch’s fall 2013 collection was inspired by the works of artist Gustav Klimt. It’s infused with dragonfly prints, Art Noveau inspiration, and scarab designs.   Our favorites?  The rich purple hues and gorgeous red ornament, the black and white print florals, and the beautiful long sleek streamlined evening gowns.
