London Fashion Week SS13: Expect the Unexpected
It seems that Spring/Summer 2013 is the season for trying something new: designers such as Erdem and David Koma have created clothes that are a step away from the norm for next season.
At Erdem, where we are used to seeing pretty floral dresses in classic silhouettes, (which you can still find for SS13), it was a nice surprise to see that he has worked python into his newest collection. Python – merged with shades of lemon and dove grey. Sounds awful, but looks oh-so-good. At David Koma, where dresses are usually bold, fierce and perhaps a little dangerous (think oversize metal accents of seasons past), things are a lot more wearable with a collection that is distinctly sporty and luxurious.
Girl Meets Dress is the perfect forum for trying something new – you can test run a new look, without the risk of losing money spent on a new dress, which might only tickle your fancy for one season.
