The spring 2013 fashion season already made its debut in New York and it seems that fashion designers chose various sources as inspiration for their newest collections. Predominantly, the new high-end garments displayed on the catwalks were all about silky fabrics, soft and fabulous pigments, clean cuts as well as fabulous prints as renowned fashion brand J.Crew proves through its spring 2013 collection.

Apparently, nature was the muse for Tom Mora, J.Crew’s head of women’s design, as the new collection was contoured in the designer’s mind while in vacation at his parents home, where he discovered an old collection of Time-Life nature books which displayed the most amazing pictures of flowers, trees and insects, all in vivid colors that enchanted the eyes. The free-spirit energy exuded by nature was captured perfectly by Tom Mora in the spring 2013 fashion collection for J.Crew as each and every design had a very relaxed feel given by both the clean cuts displayed throughout the collection as well as the amazing bright color palette used.

Although the brand’s spring 2013 fashion collection doesn’t seem innovatory, the clean silhouettes do deserve all the attention as the urban-chic style that feels laid back yet look classy seems to be on high demand this upcoming spring. For the new collection, J.Crew chose to balance the simplicity of the cuts with the luxurious feel of silk and the warmth of vibrant pigments. A high dose of pink tones, yellows and bright forest greens delighted the audience’s peepers as did the wonderful thematic fauna and flora prints. The designer chose to feature among the all printed ensembles, simpler, monochromatic designs as well as mixed print and monochrome garments as variety is a must especially since not everyone can rock-out a fabulous all-over heavy print outfit.

The brand’s stylish classic cut ankle trousers couldn’t have missed from the catwalk and to upgrade their style, they were featured in silk fabric but not only and paired with stylish blouses and cool and trendy blazers. Also popular in the line were stylish shirt dresses, a must have of the spring 2013 season, pretty skirts, the maxi dress as well as cool and cozy blouses and jeans. The lovely designs featuring adorable floral motifs exuded femininity while the pretty polka dot prints gave the collection a more retro vibe. Chic, elegant and feminine, the new spring 2013 fashion collection signed J.Crew is definitely a perfect match for the modern, laid-back urban glam girl, so check out the entire collection and select the garments that complete your style flawlessly.
