Trend Report SS2013: Black Crows
Although during fashion season the streets are usually filled with the most extraordinary dressed fashion show visitors, the rest of the year the bigger part of the fashion professionals dresses up in nothing but black. Good news for those people ’cause even this summer wearing all black is the way to go. Lanvin, Etro, Saint Laurent showed it. And of course Ann Demeulemeester, Yohji Yamamoto and Comme des Garcons stressed their darker side. Now you might find this ‘Black Crow-look’ (as Suzy Menkes described it) a little boring, fact is black is always right. Or like Yamamoto put it: “Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious. But above all black says this: “I don’t bother you – don’t bother me”.” So keep that in the back of your mind when you’re selecting your full on black attire. And be sure to keep things interesting by mixing knits with mesh, cotton with sheerness and lace with wool for that unexpected 2013 twist.
