Pre-Fall 2014: Dsquared²

First look from Pre-Fall 2014 is from Dsquared²! The collection was made for "the modern Twiggy." (source) I definitely got the strong mod vibe while looking at this collection, and when I think of mod I think of Vespas. And if it's a Vespa, it has to be yellow right? FLCL just so happens to be on while I'm typing this.

"For Pre-Fall, the DSquared boys showed a swinging sixties lineup full of mod silhouettes, micro-mini skirts, and equestrian hats that drove home the idea. Altogether, it felt like a comparatively clean and understated direction for the label known for its ultra-sexy wares. They suggested that DSquared's girl is more grown up this season, but she still knows how to party." via

Spring 2014 Pantone Fashion Color Report

A brand new post for the new year  :]  In short, 2013 was kind of a rough year. But now it's time to gather everything together and keep going.

I know I'm late, but I was looking through Pantone's colors for spring 2014 and realized... hey, some of these look familiar! I like the balance a combination of pastel-y colors and vibrant colors creates.

"Designers take a modern twist on the traditional for spring 2014 by pairing soft pastels with vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium. Inspired by a mixture of blooming flowers, travels abroad, and strong, confident women, designers use color to refresh, revive and defy conventional wisdom."  — Pantone

Happy 2014 everyone!
