Top 5 Spring 2013 Trends from Paris Fashion Week Pt. 1
Sea-inspired, sweetheart lace & lots of white!

Sea Queens

We’re in no way talking Aloha inspired or tiki but seashell appliqués, chunks of coral for heels on hot stilettos, scuba-inspired trousers, fins as appliqués on jackets – the oceanic underworld seems to have captivated designers this season. The mermaid like looks are an ideal match for other haute trends expected to be seen come April like new powdery pastels, iridescent sheen and waves of ruffles. And, in terms of hit colors, also expect top designers to take a nod from the sea with all shades of rich blue hues from acqua to cobalt.


White is always welcome come Spring, but this season except pure crisp white fabrics to be teamed up with white embellishments such as embroidery, appliqués and various other different textures. Highlights include white-on-white jackets and Little White Dresses (LWDs).  

Sweetheart Lace

Lace was a massive trend that was interpreted in all styles from strict shifts to frothy princess gowns at this year’s, Spring Fashion Week. This is one sweet look that will sweep into stores for spring and stay put for sometime.
