Antonio Berardi’s fall 2013 collection presented at London Fashion Week this month can be easily characterized by four words: chic, structural, feminine and wearable! It seems that for the fall season the designer chose to rely on the power of soft and refined designs that appear to take on a few masculine elements that were reinterpreted to suit the modern, business-chic divas. This particular collection focused towards the modern, business, power-woman niche and we absolutely have to add that the Antonio Berardi woman might be a fashion editor considering the flawless take on style displayed by each and every garment individually.
This fall 2013 season, fashion designers showing at the New York Fashion Week and London’s Fashion Week chose to bring either vintage elements or masculine-inspired details to the podiums. Antonio Berardi chose to take the last mentioned detail as inspiration for his fall 2013 collection and it seems that these elements really sparked his creativity as the lineup featured an impressive number of 44 gorgeous designs!
The show opened with a super chic asymmetric cape paired with a fabulous classic cut tweed dress and simplistic ankle booties. Tweed was present also in the designs that followed the opening garment, and the lovely display of tweed dresses, pants and coats was spiced-up and given a touch of contemporary sexiness through the use of mesh and other boldly printed fabrics that looked so different and so, so chic! Next, soft plissé details and structural lines made the delice of the collection. The designer chose classic blazers and kept them either long or cut around the wist before amping up their style by pairing them with chic skirts, respectively impeccably tailored trousers to underline that fierceness that contemporary women exude!
Switching the mood on ultra-feminine, Antonio Berardi revealed his ability to revamp classic, chic dresses and boy did we have a blast browsing through the myriad of form fitting dresses that screamed contemporary sophistication. The mash-up of colors and fabrics from which we have to mention the croc leather and the embellished tulle which had luxury written all over, enchanted the eye of the audience present at the fashion show, so be sure to take a peek at each and every design featured in the lineup as each one has a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ that can sweep you off your feet!
Although most of the designs were displayed in a duo-chromatic palette, Antonio Berardi did allow the power of monochromes to make their presence felt in the lineup, so check out highlights of the collection and tell us if you’re a fan!
