Loewe Spring 2013
An organic color palette of black, sand, and rust set the stage for Loewe's Parisian-chic Spring 2013 collection. Designer Stuart Vevers brought a crisp minimalism to the runway, offering up chic bra tops, formfitting pencil skirts, hooded leather jackets, and sleek laser-cut suede lace pieces like trench coats and shift dresses. Vevers found inspiration for his collection in Gala Dalí, the wife and muse of Surrealist painter Salvador Dalí — a woman whose mystery and sex appeal was trumped only by her sense of adventure. The designer captured that fearless spirit in travel-worn utilitarian pieces like a low-cut suede safari dress and artfully draped hooded coats and introduced a new spin on ladylike dressing. It also makes perfect sense that the Loewe Spring '13 collection was styled by another strong, daring woman with a glamorous edge — Carine Roitfeld.
