For Spring 2013, designer Victoria Bartlett stuck to the sporty aesthetic that always sets her apart from the rest. Baggy silhouettes, colorblocking, sheer fabrics, and VPL's signature bras made strong cameos on the catwalk. Models wore colorblocked sandals and harness-like headbands as eccentric accessories. The hooded anoraks, sheer jumpsuits, parachute-inspired maxi skirts, cropped sweaters, and drawstring dresses were all designed for the off-kilter fashion girl that has a major sporty side. The color palette was mostly neutrals with pops of bright yellow, orange, and mint. Solids ruled the VPL runway, but bursts of abstract stripes were a surprising addition.
