Parisian runway fashion shows started off with the new Cédric Charlier's collection featuring some seriously stylish contrasting elements. Check it out!

The Cédric Charlier's fall 2013 collection was among the first to be showcased at Paris Fashion Week. There was an interesting line inspired by the patterns of painting movement Art Brut and the surrealistic colors of Dutch Master Brueghel. Well, architecture was the main source of the Belgian designer's creations for the upcoming cold-weather season. “It's a contrast to how I normally work,”” said Charlier. “The architecture is something I wanted to push more than before.”

So, what to expect for fall 2013? Well, Cédric Charlier brought a particular yet beautiful combination of contrasting elements starting with darker looks and ending with fun and flirty prints and eye-catching hues. Okay so, black and navy blue are no sartorial news. In fact, these are already timeless classics. However, Charlier managed to reinvent the trend playing with shapes and textures. Mastering the art of layering, the designer mixes different lengths, shapes and fabrics.
