Saks Fifth Avenue Reveals Spring 2013 Trends

As we approach the spring season, Saks Fifth Avenue is seeing an influx of collections notable for their playful colors, lighter weights, feminine charms and ethereal moods. Here, Saks notes a few of the most compelling trends we see emerging for spring.

SUPER-SATURATED COLOR

Spring’s most visible trend is the whimsical intensity of the color palette. Hues are overbrimming with pigment, with bold primary colors like red, yellow, and bright blue leading the way on the designer runway. Squint to avoid optical overload.

PRECISON FLORALS

On the more feminine side, there is an abundant array of realistic floral and botanical prints. These prints are different from the more abstract florals seen last spring. They are crisply drawn, vibrantly colored and digitally enhanced, bringing to life the true beauty of this season’s blooms.

LACE IN COLOR

To complement these pretty prints is lace, especially lace in color. Varieties of lace range from light, sheer and delicate types to heavier varieties in soft, muted tones and the brightest of brights. Lace in color is perfectly acceptable for daywear, and you will see it for jackets, tops, dresses, skirts and even shorts. In a more dressed-up silhouette, this idea will transition beautifully into the evening hours.

GEOMETRICS

To contrast these pretty prints and feminine fabrications, geometrics made a major statement on the runway. We saw a 1960’s mood and streamlined, architectural silhouettes creating a retro-futuristic vibe. The A-line shape is a favorite for skirts, dresses, and even jackets. Graphics include bold stripes, checks and a variety of oversized op-art patterns.

OPTIC WHITE

A pure canvas enhances the season’s bright pops of color, geometric lines and artistic details. Monochromatic two-piece dressing is at the core of this trend.

NEO MOTO

We continue to see the sport and utility direction with sporty jackets, track pants, shorts, and sexy body-conscious dresses, often with athletic mesh details. A great piece to rise out of this trend is the Neo Moto jacket. Brightly colored leather motorcycle jackets get spring/summer-appropriate updates via lighter weights, perforations and laser-cut details. The Neo Moto trend extends to novelty versions in denim and even prints and patterns.
