Spring 2013 - Red Valentino

{All images from}

Valentino's lower priced Red Valentino line caught my eye this season too! Mostly because of the gorgeously painted backdrop they used for the photo's as well as the flirty Spring dresses. Isn't that backdrop amazing? I love the soft and dream-like colors they used in it, to paint such a tropical story. It makes it look so much more romantic and whimsical. And aren't those printed dresses and flowery necklaces beautiful? Let's just skip winter and go straight to Spring, no?!?

Spring 2013 - Dries van Noten

 {All images from}

Good Monday morning! It's pretty dark and gloomy outside, which inspired me to share the Dries van Noten runway with you today. Gorgeous, luxe fabrics mix with deep colors, and combine masculine and feminine dressing - all of which is being labeled 'grunge couture'. Don't you just love all the print mixing?!? I love how the sheer floral prints layer on top of plaid peeking through...

I always pay attention when such dark colors are used for Spring - especially when it's from such a big designer. I'm excited to see it play out in the marketplace. When I think of how this relates to paper products, I think of using vellum's, a dusting of silver or gold over prints, navy, chocolate and opalescent foils.

Spring 2013 - Tucker

Tucker is up next for sharing Spring 2013 runway inspiration. This collection is very wearable and not very over the top like so many runway shows - although I happen to LOVE over the top! The colors are fantastic in this collection, aren't they? Greens and oranges with a pop of yellow + Teal with reds and berry tones = very sell-able color palettes!

Spring 2013 - Peter Pilotto

Next up on the Spring 2013 runways that I wanted to share with you is Peter Pilotto. This runway collection is digital printing at it's best! Such a visual feast! I love how they collaged so many prints together. Keep your eye'll be seeing a LOT more of the blue and red color combo as I continue to share. What I like about their use of these two colors is that they infuse other quirky and unexpected colors which make it feel less Americana.

Spring 2013 - Erdem

{All images from}

I've been spending the past few weeks taking snapshots of the Spring / Summer 2013 runway's, gathering inspiration, and I thought I'd start sharing some of them with you today! Especially with Winter upon us, I though bringing you some beautiful and fresh color might just make your Friday that much cheerier!

First up, Erdem. The glowing color palette mixed with the sheer fabrics, applique flowers and lace truly make this a gorgeous collection! Wouldn't you agree? I love the accents of shiny and mirrored silver metallic shoes and sunglasses (foil on products, anyone??!) and the neon-like color treatment to traditional lace. Now THAT is how you revive traditional elements! LOVE!
