River Island SS13

SS13 at River Island looks quite promising, doesn't it? Especially the jewellery grew on me - all these colourful gems, embroidered fabrics and crazy combinations are what wowed me at today's press day. I am very happy that Mexican and Aztec designs are still sought after for next summer. Other favourites include the diamond/stud belt, the necklace with the three smaragd stones and the last one with the spikes (I love my spikes, I really do).

And there's more! Alexander Wang look-like leather cut garments and mesh dresses are set to be huge next year. It is fair to say that luxe sportswear isn't going anywhere.
Next up, we also have glam military, that is khaki colours mixed up with glitzy metallics and faux snake skin. The military trend has been updated successfully and will remain on the fashion front.
Lace in girly nude colours as well as flashy neon à la Christopher Kane was also present today. For next season, laser-cut techniques have been refined to create even more detail (is that a mini monkey I spy on the sleeves of the white lace top in the fifth photo?).
And then we'll get a cool 70s hippie boho look where earthy colours have been combined with raw denim and loads of studs.

All you gotta do now is choose, plan and buy. Simples!
Another thing; I went to the Valentino: Master Of Couture press preview today and I was blown away by it. I've been looking forward to this particular exhibition for months and it's one of the best ones I've seen. Over 130 of Valentino's designs are showcased and ready to be examined by fashion hungry minds. You have to go; it's open until 3rd of March next year.
