Karl Lagerfeld's luxe version of futurism for Spring 2013 consisted of clean sportswear silhouettes, Bauhaus graphics, and one of the freshest color palettes seen so far this season. Pastel and bold hues — apricot, turquoise, ochre, baby blue, red, beige, and gray — were offset by crisp black or solid white, and when rendered in the form of thick lines (on the hems of A-line skirts) or contrasting panels (on button placards and on the inseams of pants) it all made for a sharp, optical effect. Leather, fur, and an oversized explosion print added texture and softness, while the house's colorblocked bags — stripped of all hardware — felt modern and fresh.
