One of the most essential and wearable trends from the Spring 2013 runways is stripes. Big, bold and simple stripes can be worn head to toe or mixed-and-matched for a modern twist. As New York City prepares to kick off a series of runway shows [presenting Fall 2013 collections] we take a look back at how the designers showed their stripes.
Below: Dolce & Gabbana. Appropriately titled “Sicilia” the collection paid homage to the designers’ homeland. Bold stripes paired with brightly printed wraps & scarves and native accessories reflected the island’s vibrant street markets, puppet theaters and beachy holidays in the sun.
Below: Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti. The Italian designer showcased a collection of fitted frocks, pencil skirts, bustiers and short shorts. Patch-worked out of necktie silks Ferretti borrowed from the boys to create these feminine pieces.
Below: Marc Jacobs. Graphic stripes and striking silhouettes dominated this collection mainly comprised of mono-chromatic pieces. The boldness of these patterned pieces leaves little need for embellishments or additional accessories.
Below: Michael Kors. Another collection heavy on the stripes, the American Fashion Designer brought a more nautical interpretation to the 60’s Mod feel with pops of primary colors. Sleek and simple accessories complete the looks with a modern edge.
