Tres White and tres tres Black

How truly fabulous has the Spring Summer 2013 RTW collections been! If you haven’t seen any of the collections and want to quickly catch up I highly recommend watching the ‘genius journalist’ Tim Blank’s style.com videos. Start with the obvious ones Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Valentino etc and then make sure you watch what I think are the most amazing Alexander McQueen, Haider Ackermann, Balenciaga, Gareth Pugh, Dries Van Noten and Altuzarra…

If you have eyes you will notice that all the collections strongly feature black and white structured pieces. In the past few Summer Seasons the colour trends have moved from bright block colours, to more subtle block colours paired with patterns, and then to the pastels of Spring Summer 2012. So it is no surprise that it is now back to black and white with a focus on modern shapes like ruffles and prints like stripes, spots and squares.
