Helmut Lang S/S 2013

These three designers, Gabi, Ange, and Adi have made a highly respected name for themselves using fashion as art. Color blocking, patchwork and mesh on their signature bodysuits […]

Alexander Wang S/S 2013
Alexander Wang’s SS 13 show was simply stunning. Here is a designer who knows his woman, giving her more options and creative output season after season. There are aspects that seldom vary, like this season’s choice of color palette (certainly his mainstay), black, white, taupe and grays.  Innovation is clearly his strong point, this season […]
