Tomorrow’s fashion today: PROENZA SCHOULER Spring/Summer 13
It is nice to be a jetsetter, travelling the world, and hopping from one capital to the other – especially during fashion week time! But not everyone can be, and that includes me – at least not full time.
That’s when the Internet comes in handy for all of us – wether we want to know about the latest trends worn by our style heroes across the world, or we want to shop for a certain designer we love – everything is made so easy these days. And by connecting with the right people, magical things can happen – like they happened to me, when I met Aslaug Magnusdottir, CEO of M’O – MODA OPERANDI and her fantastic team during my short stay in London at Fashion Week time. To give you an idea about MODA OPERANDI and what they can do – for you: On the web site you can look at trunk shows of hand picked designers, including Zac Posen, Philipp Lim and Marc Jacobs. It means that you are able to shop the very latest looks straight from the run way, those collections that may hit the stores almost half a year later – or actually never. If you found a piece you love, you can pre-order it and the designer will start working on a piece that is exclusively made for you!
Just imagine you need this one special dress for this one special occassion – and you have a designer you absolutely love and adore making it for you! It’s like a dream come true…
What caught my eye immediately was the very artful industrial appearing prints as well as the chain link trim on the accessories. I also love how they are bringing in the tribal theme but with a very modern twist. The mixture of exquisite and contrasting materials is adorable. In terms of colour fluorescent colours paired with down-to-earth shades, like grey and black set the tone in their ready to wear collection. The prints Proenza Schouler use in these amazing dresses are out of sight, it seems that in this collection the designers where buzzing with creativity – think photographs of pool scenes or voluptous tree scenes. The complex pleating details on tops, skirt and dresses are showing PROENZA SCHOULER’S unique workmanship – let the images of the collection inspire you for your own fashion future:

Please note, that this is a personal selection of my favourite pieces from the trunk show. You can view more pieces and different colours on the MODA OPERANDI site. The trunk show will be available until October, 3rd. I found a video of the whole show on VOGUE Germany here, it’s an absolute must see!
Are you blown away by this collection, just as I am? Wether you are just marveling at this wonderful pieces or are going to shop them right away: Which look has taken your breath away?
I hope you are having fun with my style forecast for the next year!
