Trend-spotting F / W 13.14 ; Type and Rebellion


The influence of Punk has been found in all areas of fashion, majorly due to the fact that the Metropolitan Museum of Art has chosen it as the theme for the yearly costume institute. There were a mix of different interpretations on the Fall runways — one being graphic / punk-esque slogan t-shirts. Whether with abstract letters spelling out in-your-face text – as Jeremy Scott’s ‘Rescue Me’ jumper — or a design that’s more subversive and sequined — Ashish presented a top reading ‘i’m having a shit day thanks’ — typed out tops are sure to be a major trend for the coming fall. It’s a great way to channel that punk attitude without feeling like you are donning a fancy dress costume, and these pieces can surely be conversation starters. Or, in the case of the aforementioned Ashish shirt, perhaps a conversation avoider —

Here are some more examples of rebelliously  inclined graphic t-shirts from the international runways ;

Runway review — Altuzarra Fall Winter 2013 at NYFW










Femme Fatale ; Altuzarra Fall Winter 2013

inspired by Altuzarra’s muse – the ingenious Carine Roitfeld, this collection picked up on her her love for fur and leather and looking powerful and sexy on a regular basis. Manon Leloup opened the show in a woman-in-charge worthy suit with padded hips and leather shoulders.
Dresses were spliced with zips left undone to reveal shear under-skirts
Accessorizing motorcycle jackets in black leather, fur mittens in black and white made an impact. The resulting look was something of a strung-out, post modern Cruella de Vil.

A beauty look that was almost heroin-chic topped off the rock and roll worthy runway looks inspired by cool paradigms Patti Smith and Kate Moss.
Makeup artist Tom Pecheux described the collection as “fucked up french ladies going shopping on the Avenue Montaigne” which hit the nail right on the head. In order to create the messy smokey eye he used MAC’s Fall Forecast Eye Palette. Hairstylist Paul Hanlon called the look ‘stringy’ emphasizing the grunge aspect of Altuzarra’s vision.
