AW 13- Saintly Chic

Oscar de la Renta SS13

Saintly Chic- This autumn pious turns pretty with saintly cuts and colors taking center stage. Aloha to the new way of dressing in contrast. From Valentino to Dolce & Gabbana, all paid a tribute to the spiritual side of fashion making the church look not just stylish but an absolute trend this season. The disciplined look was showcased from volumes to sleeker cuts with a monochrome palette. While JW Anderson had a more doctrine effect to the whole look, Dolce and Gabbana took an overt direct approach with saint figures and rosaries dominating the looks that sashayed down the runway.

Valentino added a bit of glamour with lace and a subtle hint of glitter on maxi lengths. What was interesting to notice in Valentino’s collection was mix and match of silhouettes and colors, charitable silhouettes mixing up with bold primary colors like blues and white. Do not forget the rosary is the prime accessory with this new development of saintly fashion.
For a truly edgy way to dress saintly this season, look to Alexander McQueen for inspiration and pair your white cotton shirt with your black corsets and skirts.
