Trends: Show Your Stripes


Trends: Show Your Stripes

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.
