Trend Report SS2013: It's a wrap everybody!
As part of the Japonism trend wrap tops are popping up everywhere. Asymmetric, sheer, printed, silky or linen; the possibilities are endless. At Etro the ladies were wrapped up in floral printed tops that literally breathed the far east. Dries van Noten gave his versions a unique twist by making them sheer, by choosing gorgeous nature inspired prints and by mixing them up with his tartan hit-print. At Prada and Pucci the tops were shiny and silky, as Prada’s creations seemed only vaguely inspired by the original wrap designs. As it appeared even a regular blouse can get the same wrap treatment by tying it together with a Eastern inspired obi belt. And after going through all these images we suddenly feel the urge to start putting a belt on top of every outfit, ’cause it looks so damn cute. It’s a wrap everybody!
