Dressing for a space-age escapade to Mars with Nanette Lepore for FW13. The collection held true to its feminine appeal, but the mission driven looks had a more structured statement to make. There was a healthy dose of mixable ensembles and dresses.
Military greens and exposed zippers made sense without taking over. Prints, all over, or on a blouse paired with pants added an earthiness on one hand, and a bright punch in the other. Leathers made sense and revealed a little tough girl underneath is all with sturdiness, as did outerwear meant for an active lifestyle.
Flashy accessories complimented the fashions and lent a back to the future boost. The holographic leather belts, bags, and shoes wowed in sea green hues or shades of dusty pink.
