TRENDS: Love Is In The Air
Earlier this week we offered up Orla Kiely’s heart-infused Resort 2013 collection as evidence that “love” was in the air and would likely see its way into the back-to-school season as well. We were right. In fact, heart-shaped graphic are just a small part of 2013′s Fall/Winter trend hot for the “heart on your sleeve” theme.
Burberry Prorsum, Lanvin, Milly, and Honor all peppered their F/W 13 runway collections with variations on the season’s affection for affection with graphic heart-shapes and lip prints adorning dresses, coats, sweaters, and shoes, and cursive love print showing up on chunky necklaces and rings. Fast fashion was also quick to jump on the “love” bandwagon, offering up their own take on accessories like an H&M’s heart-stitched purse and Urban Outfitters gold cursive ring. The look is surprisingly more playful and less girly, with urban prints and quirky accessories taking center stage — so leave any sugary sweet notions of “love” you have behind and belly up to what is stacking up to be 2013′s hottest fall/winter trend.
