The new season announces itself to be extremely interesting. Between flowy dresses and fab structured pieces with geometric precision the alternatives sure aren’t as unidirectional as the past seasons were. The Salvatore Ferragamo label has sure taken the side of the fab structured pieces rather than the often overused romantic allure. The spring 2013 collection definitely tends to point out that military influences will still be hot in the new season as opposed to simply being the fall go-to tendency to some degree. Textural contrasts often replace the strong vibe which made the intent of the pieces so clearly recognizable.
Those looking for instant statement will certainly appreciate the multitude of luxe leather pieces that give edginess and a strong visual interest to most outfits. If many labels abandoned or drastically changed the way the animal prints were represented, the label chose the classic way for the new season as well. Snakeskin prints definitely added the needed contrast to the fab neutral toned pieces. The label proved over and over that going neutral from head to toe can sometimes be just as eye-catching as going for vibrant tones.
Daring cuts, a touch of asymmetry, a little sheerness or a well chosen accessory transformed seemingly harsh combos into fabulous alternatives that can appeal to a wider range of style preferences. Exotic skins can seem a little intimidating yet a body con sleeveless neutral blouse with a feminine touch can be a lot more appealing than one would expect. A variety of interesting yet super versatile jackets can definitely help make things a lot more toned down yet complex at the same time.
Metallics weren’t represented solely as a tonal option but were also integrated into the pieces. The knight in shinning armor concept got makeover as an edgy yet ladylike alternative for those who love to make a statement and be the trendsetters within their group. Knee high peep toe boots are another interesting piece with a strong potential of defining the new trends footwear wise as they definitely helped the theme of the looks be properly reflected.
