Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain Spring 2013 – IMAXtree
Stripes have never exactly been out of fashion, but this season it’s all about looking like a walking, talking QR code. It started at Marc Jacobs with a pantsless Ruby Jean Wilson done up in Sedgwick fashion and followed by a whole army of girls in eye-boggling combos of houndstooth, checks, and stripes going in every direction imaginable. In Milan and Paris, stripes manifested themselves in a whole spectrum of colours, but it was the black and white looks at Dolce & Gabanna, Balmain, and Issey Miyake that were the most striking. Match this look with silver basics and accessories for a Factory-meets-future mien.
