Despite having a late entry into the fashion industry, Victoria Beckham has given well-established designers from across the world a run for their money. Being one of the most awaited events of New York Fashion Week, Victoria Beckham did not disappoint fashion lovers. Her Fall line for 2012-2013 boasts class and sophistication, satisfying those who are avid fans of clean lines and impeccable tailoring. Her staple midi-dress was a focal point of the fashion show as models strutted the ramp in bold ensembles that had added detail resonant of military style. Capturing the true essence of fall, the fashion show models had their hair straight and sleek to further emphasize the straight line silhouettes and sophistication of this line.
Launching the “It” trend for Fall Winter 2012-2013, Ralph Lauren was among the most in demand lines as it directs the direction for fashion in any given season. This line was no comparison to the others as it pretty much captured the epitome of sophistication and high-end fashion. The Sherlock Holmes inspired line attracted the attention of celebrities and models alike as they were more costumes than everyday wear for work. The Ralph Lauren collection touched on the fashion of the 1920’s era, however the twist was integrating the male fashion into female wardrobes. Tweed, flare trousers, patterned socks and art-deco sweaters paired with ties and bowler-style hats made Ralph Lauren’s show a hit amongst fashion gurus and enthusiasts.
No fashion showdown can be complete without a glimpse of the sophisticated elegance that Gucci provides, year after year, decade after decade. With each collection being a step in the right direction, the Fall Winter 2012-2013 line of Gucci was no exception. The collection has been designed by Frida Gianni and was launched at Milan’s Fashion week this year. Whenever anyone mentions sophistication, we think of elegance and class, however Gianni’s interpretation of romantic sophistication was clearly a level that other fashion brands are yet to reach. The show was fittingly themed as ‘Opulent Romanticism’, providing exactly what it promised – opulence intertwined with romance. The use of rich and heavy material such as velvet and brocade added to the elegance and glamour that was projected in the show.
