ASIAN TRENDS 2013
While the fashion world will be moving into the fall season in t-minus three weeks, the rest of us regular folk are still looking for what’s coming for Spring 2013. During fashion week, after the models strut the runways in the newest designer duds, analysts get to work deciding what the coming key trends will be for the season.
For Spring 2013, there are a couple of trends that are still going strong such as the sheer look, but the one trend that has emerged to a different beat (it’s been done before, but this year’s spin is ever-so-fresh) is Asian inspiration. Dubbed “Asia Society” by top industry websites, it’s all about the kimono with a twist.
From elite designers like Prada and Lanvin, we see a more structured style that is fit for your inner warrior. On the flip side of the geisha coin, designers such as Emilio Pucci and Dries Van Noten have given their kimono takes a softer, feminine look that resembles more of an elegant silk robe.
