It’s a new era in fashion

“It’s a new era in fashion – there are no rules. It’s all about the individual and personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up-and-coming designers all together.”

Defining modern fashion

“I think the idea of mixing luxury and mass-market fashion is very modern, very now – no one wears head-to-toe designer anymore.”

-Alexander McQueen

Fashion rejuvenates women.

“Fashion is always of the time in which you live. It is not something standing alone. But the grand problem, the most important problem, is to rejeuvenate women. To make women look young. Then their outlook changes. They feel more joyous.”

The Colors of Spring/Summer 2013

24 Oct

Earlier this month, Pantone announced that its top color for spring 2013 is a shade of blue: Monaco Blue to be precise, which is kind of like a subtle hybrid of navy and cobalt. Compared to the glorious tangerine tango of 2012, some may find it a tab boring [read: less flashy].

Pantone Color Institutes’s executive director, Leatrice Eiseman, explained to Womens Wear Daily  that the shade “speaks to the practicality that we are seeing in society. You have to realize there is still concern out there for the economy.”

Noting that the runner up color is also a blue—Dusk Blue. However, the fashion forward won’t  have to spend the entire spring walking around in blue. The third and fourth most popular colors are both greens, Emerald and Grayed Jade, and the rest of the list is as follows: Linen, Poppy Red, African Violet, Tender Shoots, Lemon Zest, and Tangerine Tango’s distant relative, Nectarine.
