Harnessed In Time

The 2013 Spring/Summer designs of Leila Shams are incredible. The pieces seen on the runway during NYFW are definitely to obsess over. The seemingly simplistic garments each have intricate detailing and unsuspected surprises. To make things even better she brilliantly pairs the sheer lace 60s and 70s inspired dresses with rugged leather harnesses. Did I mention how OBSESSED I am. But wait, it gets better. The Leila Shams collection pairs girly lace tops with pieces ranging from denim cut offs, to fringe leather jackets, to tie dye denim. And I still have yet to mention the fabulous prints. Bottom Line...Leila Shams is a fabulous DIVA with an equally fabulously GORGEOUS collection. Check out some of my favorite looks from the collection below.

Hippie Chic: Spring 2013

Spring/Summer Collections are known for their use of pastels and brightly colored prints and patterns. Throwing the perfect balance of white into the mix makes for styles that even the least girlie ladies will appreciate. The 2013 S/S collection that filled the runway during NYFW at Rebecca Minkoff's seasonal debut was breathtaking. From tailored trousers, to denim shorts, to funky hippie dresses, this collection has it all. By creating intricate patterns on her garments with panels of printed fabrics and fantastic color treatments this is a collection at the top of my list for the season. Rebecca Minkoff’s playful and subtly edgy designs can be spotted on girls everywhere from downtown to uptown, in the US and abroad. The super pretty, girlie pieces accompanied with rugged 70s inspired hippie styles created looks that can only be described as as close as it gets to riding unicorns with fairies while eating mountains of ice cream sundaes in the fashion world. Okay, that might have been my 5 year old imagination coming back. Please disregard my foolishness. But by far, this is for sure a collection that every modern girl dreams of owning pieces from. Check out some of my faves below.

Printed Geek: Spring 2013

Co-designers Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein have used their mutual interest in European history, travel and a flair for dapper dressing to create this fantastic geek chic collection. With so many prints from houndstooth to aztec to abstrac stripes, dots, and flowers, vintage inspiration was definitely in their design studio when they decided to create this collection. Their awesome take on menswear with a feminine twist is reminiscent of the classic styles that frequent the fashion trend radar but their usage of contrasting silhouettes makes their collection one to die for. The sleek blazers, trousers, and collars give this sexy collection a bit of geek and makes it perfect for office bound work-aholics (like me).  This is one fab design duo that will be on my radar in the upcoming seasons. Check out some of my favorite looks from the Spring 2013 collection that came down the runway during NYFW.

I must admit that although the fabulous prints in this collection made me do more double takes than should be humanly possible, the jackets surprisingly were the reason I've been distracted at work entirely too long.

Conservative, Sexy, Cool: Spring 2013

Lace, Brocade Prints, and Modest Necklines are the epitome of vintage fashion. These styles have consistently been glorified in the world of vintage and were very present on the Spring 2013 Runways. Japanese designer Tadashi Shoji knocked it out of the park with his designs during New York Fashion Week. He took the conservative nature of vintage inspired fashion and sexed it up with sheer detailing and coveted silhouettes that even a flat chested, no butt, hip-less fashion lover like me could feel sexy in. With a background in designing for A-list stars of the 70s including Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Neil Diamond, The Jacksons, and Earth, Wind, & Fire, he is no stranger to creating amazingness inspired from the hippie vibes of the vintage eras. Check out some of my favorite pieces from the collection below.
