SS13 TREND REPORT / WOMENS / SHEERLY NOT

I love a bad good wordplay almost as much as I love a bit of sheer panneling. Sheer used to remind me of those awful nylon babydoll things you see on market stalls up and down the country, worn by middle aged women who flash the milkman. Here’s an example of what I found when I searched ‘sheer’ in tumblr (tastefully edited to spare your blushes).

But thankfully, sheer doesn’t have to equal trashy. An incredibly wearable, versatile trend, there are lots of good sheer pieces available on the high street, more of which in another post.┬áSS13 showed us the versatility of the sheer trend through subtly sexy panelling at Helmut Lang, sporty at Preen, romantic at Jason Wu and boyish grunge at Prabal Gurung.

PRE-FALL PRE-CUM: PART ONE

The pre-fall collection is a relatively new concept, only picking up momentum over the past 10 years. Along with resort and cruise, it breaks up the gaps between traditional spring/summer and autumn/winter collections.

Hitting stores in May, this year’s pre-fall collections feature some of my favourite things: leather, oversized, masculine tailoring and patterned prints. Here’s a look at my top picks this year.
