Street View – AW13’s future tends as seen curb-side

Posted on

Off-duty models, photographers, editors, buyers and general members of the fashion furore braved unappealing weather conditions this season to heat things up off the catwalk…

Camel

There was plenty of trend cross-over between the shows and the street. Neutrals were seen in abundance post-show, mostly in the form of fine wool coats, jumpers and jackets. Suede fedoras, wintry skirts, leather clutches and fur also got the taupe treatment, with darker shades of caramel mixed in for a subtle shift in shade.

He/She

Androgyny was a heavy-hitter, with boyish brogues, oversized wool coats and button-down shirts worn in anticipation of the masculine/feminine gender play that’s coming in for AW13. Those who dared to take the look to its logical conclusion paired up with matching partners in the ultimate show of boy meets girl.

Everyday Luxe

Brocades, lace, gold foiling and embroidery were worn with unapologetic aplomb. Gold jacquard statement trousers were paired with a grey t-shirt, fur was worn with sneakers, lace coats in powdery pastels with a knitted beanie. A full length dress coat in all-over metallic floral would have been more at home in a Venetian manor but was seen street-side worn with incredible ease. Fancy? Me?

Pop Culture

Colour was used sparingly for the most part, with black-on-black remaining a sartorial safety net. But when colour did feature it popped in acid brights, citrus and lime. Accessories were the easiest way to add a little flavour – oversized clutches, purses, scarves and hats elevated the mood, defying the snow and rain with brash brilliance. Coats in nectarine and neon gave otherwise laidback looks an OTT advantage while head-to-toe cobalt on a coat and cropped pants with matching handbag and blue checked shoes went all the way, making colour the main attraction rather than a highlight.

Model Behaviour

Grunge glamour and easy pieces thrown together with artful haphazardness continue to be a street style staple for models jetting between jobs. Torn jeans, t-shirts, slouchy knits, weathered bikers, boots, trainers and plenty of leather look to be a recurring theme for city girls with things to do and people to see. Twenty-six inch waist optional.
