Our first show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week here in New York really set the tone for our week. The Timo Weiland runway show of their Spring/Summer 2013 collection was a fresh take on crisp classics and reeked of a “cool kid” charm. With the likes of Zombie Boy, Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller and the sisters/designers of DanniJo all sitting in front row, this was the place to be.
→ Fresh color combos. When a stranger asked me what I thought of the show, I instantly answered her by saying, “It was so fresh!”. When I thought about what part of it was fresh, it had to be the sweet color combinations. Neon yellow was paired with a muted gray, soft corals with small black accents and nude were patterned with white to liven it up. A favorite of mine was the classic trench with a bold neon yellow houndstoothprint; a must-have next spring!
→ Whites. Despite the fact that winter whites will reign this year, it seems that whites will still be cropping up in it’s favourite season. All-over whites were made less blah with mixing in of sheer whites and black piping details.
→ Man shorts. For the men, it was all about the awesome outerwear: bomber jackets, drawstring anoraks, hoodies and varsity style cardigans. But the one repeated element was the men in shorts. It’s an item that few men know how to approach but Timo Weiland went ahead and boldly paired it with everything.
→ Beading. The show transitioned from fresh spring colours to darker military greens and navy blues and the evening dresses all featured intricate beading embellishments.
Makeup was done by Nars and looks were natural and glowing, save for some blue liner on the upper lid. Luckily, it also seems that bold brows are here to stay! Hair by L’Oreal featured a few twisted cornrows and thick crimped ponytails on the ladies, while the men rocked Deep side parts and sleekly combed hair. After seasons of over-the-top talons and nail art, it appeared as if models on this runway rocked nude tips done by Dashing Diva
As a bonus, the jewelry was designed by none other than Pamela Love and the womens’ shoes were all new designs from the TSUBO and Timo Weiland collaboration.
