S/S 13 - All In The Detail

Balenciaga S/S 13
Bottega Veneta S/S 13
Next season we are presented with specific silhouettes and shapes for fashion, yet it is usually the details such as prints, accessories and styling that identifies the 'looks' from one season to another. Although we have seen bold and oversized statement jewels such as necklaces filter into the mainstream fashion recently, next season it is pearls that get blown up and enlarged. See how Chanel has exaggerated the their pearl bracelets and necklaces to balance the proportions of their voluminous silhouettes. In fact, Chanel has oversized sandals too, sparking a trend for clumpy-clompy shoes. Next summer shoe styles are lacking in any sort of discretion, wear any of the footwear as seen at Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga, Prada and Louis Vuitton and you will let them know you are coming from streets away. If the shoes alone arent enough of a style statement then just add a large hat. At Chanel see how Karl Lagerfeld fuses a traditional spanish Cordobes riding hat with an huge 'compact disc' like brim. Saint-Laurent also chose to go large on the headwear with seventies style floppy hats.
