New York Fashion Week SS13: Creatures of the Wind, Douglas Hannant, Libertine, Marc by Marc

Creatures of the Wind is a fairly young line making a big leap forward with this collection. Their play on menswear shapes paired well with their signature mix of bold prints and vivid colors. Plus, the shoes are amazing. 

For Douglas Hannant, spring will be about whimsy. Hannant played with bright colors, adorable accessories, a variety of floral prints, iridescent fabrics, ruffles and lace. It was a joyful collection.

Libertine was a bit like a fashion acid trip with prints layered on top of prints then mixed with other prints. The collection gave you a sense that it was moving while standing still. (Though it apparently was presented as confusingly as some of the clothes look). But a closer examination shows a collection of delightful and unique pieces that would each stand out on their own.

Marc by Marc Jacobs drew its inspiration from 1982--all the varied parts of it. It may a slightly scattered collection, but the retro references still felt fresh and modern.
