Earn Your Stripes

New York designers are showing their stripes next season, with a fresh, innovative twist on the classics.

Bold stripes appeared in lean languid shapes or easy menswear silhouettes. The most notable American designers embraced the trend, with dresses, tops and suits all earning their stripes!

Marc Jacobs is arguably the most directional designer in the world right now, and all eyes were on his collection, as editors looked for the next big thing. After seasons of excess, his Spring ’13 collection highlighted clean graphic interpretations of the 1060’s, while channelling the iconic Edie Sedgewick.

Tommy Hilfiger is synonymous with all-American style. His collection featured classic and deconstructed stripes in easy feminine takes on menswear.

Michael Kors also played the stripe card, with bold sailor stripes on clean modern shapes.

As you are packing away the last of your summer wardrobe and getting ready for fall, hold on to that boat neck striped tee for one more year. It is sure to be the center piece of your wardrobe next spring.
