At the Haute Couture Shows F/W 2012/13 in Paris, we have seen a Jean Paul Gaultier who payed homage to Amy Winehouse. He sent his models down the runway to her songs "Back to Black" and "Rehab". The styling was Amy-inspired with big beehives, dramatic black eyeliner, cigarettes, even Marilyn-moles. The colours were mainly black and nude (the "skyrocket bust" corset) with pops of neon and bright colours for the 'new look'. The feminine dresses and corsets remembered of the 50ies. Edgy black suits and leather reminiscent of the punky 80ies. A rebellious mix from different decades.
The Lena Hoschek collection at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Berlin F/W 2012/13 showed elements and silhouettes of the 40ies. Metallic shimmering materials, pleats and lace constitute a modern material mix. The attitude was cool - a bit of french chic with barretts and deep red or black lips. In 2012 we have the medium lenght in skirts again. Here you can have a closer look at the collection from Lena Hoschek. Very wearable.
