Runway Shows - New York Fashion Week

 

WGSN, the world leading fashion forecaster and Official Trend Sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, has announced today their runway forecasts for 2013 womenswear fall styles.

“This runway season we expect to see a reinterpretation and continuation of some key trends from the spring season, such as the 1960’s mod classics, 90’s grunge, and overall androgynous dressing,” said Jaclyn Jones, US Womenswear Editor. “The color palettes, print and pattern, and key details will define and differentiate the season.”

WGSN expects to see several key item trends on this year’s runways including:

 

  • Sweatshirts: The new staple top, with four distinctions: all-over printed, feminine, collegiate, and big animal graphics
  • Pleated mini-skirts: An expansion of the classic straight mini skirt, the pleated mini references the collegiate school girl
 
Scene B Seen is back!

I’m pleased to announce that Scene B Seen is back – it’s revived and I couldn’t be happier. Due to just everyday life I’ve been terribly behind on this website, and life hasn’t been the same without it.

This is my commitment to all of you: that you can check back every day for your dosage of fashion, beauty and music, things that make life easier living, and with it you’ll stay informed and stylish. Feel free to send me whatever suggestions you have to make this website more enjoyable, because that’s what Scene B Seen is all about – you, the reader.

I began writing for Scene B Seen almost three years ago. Since then we’ve still kept the black, white and red color scheme along with our chic girl logo. The only things that have changed are the writers and the fonts, but the coverage is still the same.

So raise a glass to the relaunch of Scene B Seen! Thank you for staying true to us and welcome to our new readers. It only gets better from here.

 

Cheers,

Nicole Zak

 

 
Carlos Miele Spring/Summer 2013 Review
Written by Roderic David
Runway Shows - New York Fashion Week

Welcome to the Jungle. From the very first look, Carlos Miele transported us from the Stage at Lincoln Center to a “hallucinatory jungle” filled with vivid and colorful jungle prints. At the start of the show, the model peered out into the spotlight in a phosphate blue giraffe print silk chiffon caftan and yellow tiger print dress, waving her and arms and moving gracefully like the wind.

In the 30 looks that followed, there were an eclectic mix of patterns, prints and materials, highlighting very different jungle spirits, while all the while maintaining Miele’s signature aesthetic.

 
Michael Kors SS13

Opening the show, a classic American couple made their way home from a vacation in Tomorrowland. The clothing represented the archetypal but modern businessman with striped button downs, bi-color blazers, and suits. The housewife dressed in sleeveless collared tops, bottoms that cut off right at the ankles or mid thigh, and one piece swimsuits with side cutouts. Oversized transparent plastic sunglasses looked as if the models were ready to pull out a blow torch and become Mr. Fix It at any given time.

"For Spring 2013 the Pamella Roland collection is inspired by the iconic American artist Ellsworth Kelly. His stark black and white paintings are part of a body of work that resonate in particular because of their clean almost severe lines that speak to a harmony between the shapes that they create."
