If last season was an exploration of the stricter side of things, then Spring 2013 may just mark a return to playfulness for Peter Som. Sure, there was a certain sense of underlying danger in some of those angularly cut floral-print dresses (the best of which were rimmed in dark lace), but right out the gate, these looks were softer, sweeter, and prettier than nearly anything the designer sent down the runway the season before. What really made these looks shine, though, was Som's killer sense for color, pattern, and detail. A pencil skirt in airy pastel tweed, for example, was given a tactile boost with the addition of a sexy little hip panel in lace, while a series of vivid chevron-patterned looks were actually made from panels of patchworked snakeskin.

Earlier in the week, the designer told us that the song that most defines Spring 2013 for him is "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out" by The Smiths. Thanks to these brightly clever looks, it's easy to see what he means.
