French fashion label A.P.C. chose to take the same path to style with its spring 2013 collection by turning towards vintage patterns and details and the interesting manner these details are fused makes A.P.C. special. The brand managed to find the recipe to success as vintage inspired fashion designs have managed to capture a high amount of attention from the public these past few seasons and they’re sticking to it fortunately.

This spring 2013 season the fashion podiums were packed with contrasting elements that either exuded simplicity or opulence. Not many designers chose to ‘play it safe’ and that proved to be quite a mistake as some of the designs were more artistic or boring to be perfect for the modern day divas. However, A.P.C. managed to find the perfect recipe to success by opting to fuse vintage elements with contemporary chicness and making the result ooze wearability.

Perfect for the modern, urban girls who love to add a tad of vintage appeal to their style, the brand’s spring 2013 collection is absolutely worth all your attention. Jean Touitou, A.P.C.’s creative designer, revealed the fashionable garments featured in the collection were inspired by a German nanny from ‘sometime in the seventies who doesn’t mean to be sexy but is’. That subtle touch of sex appeal is flawlessly infused in all the fashion pieces that were presented, from start to finish.

The stylish designs included in the collection such as denim pieces, classic-style jumpsuits, stylish halter dresses, pretty plisse dresses, tucked in shirts buttoned up all the way, chic trenches and lovely pullovers layered over contrasting color shirts, fashion pieces that feel comfortable and that can be mixed and matched to suit women with various style preferences from all casual to feminine chic. The color palette featured in the collection was chosen to suit the theme, thus toned down, dusky tones of blue, lavender, pink, yellow, neutrals and achromatic tones dominated the collection. Prints are not as popular this spring as after a heavy in prints and embellishments fall season, the need for simple chicness is high and the designer chose to follow this trend and opt for predominantly monochromes. Occasionally stylish hearts, leopard prints and lines were introduced to wipe the boring out of the designs. Chic, stylish and feminine, the collection is worth every bit of your attention, so browse through the fabulous designs and draw inspiration for your spring 2013 style.
