Some of the Pre-Fall 2013 collections are now out! It’s very exciting to see what the trends might be for the fall, even though it’s way too early to even think about next fall… Although if you are a big shopper it can be ‘strategic’ to know what the trends might be, not only for the coming season but for the whole year. Then you get yourself some great pieces that will last in your wardrobe. First out was Chanel and the brand showed a Scottish influenced collection with kilts, tweeds and checked patterns but also with obvious vibes of romance and details from 18th Century. Even the slightly odd, but beautiful combination, Chanel has achieved to create a collection that is very spot on of the trends that will become big for 2013 – the more sophisticated grunge trend. I believe we will see a lot of checked trousers and shirts, styled with loose-fitted pants in leather or jeans – a boy-ish and androgyne look, but yet very cool and sexy. My two favourite looks from the Chanel show are the these two. Love the checked slouchy trousers styled with an olive green over-sized tweed bomber, as well as the look underneath – checked patterns goes overload! Not only Chanel worked with plaid. Theyskens’ Theory showed in their pre-fall 2013 collection, a checked, plaided trench. I love the trend and I am very exciting to see more of it!
