Trends - Modern Reflections - By Sidney Rhule.

The trend concept 'Modern Reflections' was developed to illustrate and inspire the wide spectrum of creative influences driving the new season, FW13 

The concept highlights the need to understand a new world order. 
New values of creativity and experiment. The celebration of authentic history through tailoring and the extravagance of opulent materials.

There was a sense of drama, adventure and exploration, where luxurious materials were highlighted in outerwear, sinister moods moved carefully through evening wear and elegant accessories, rich tapestry and ethnic twists, adorned casual jackets, leather and denim. While modern layers of reflective coatings and hyper colours in prints, made exciting playmates, in scuba inspired tops and urban sweatshirts. 

The silhouettes were oversized and rounded in the shoulders. 
Fabrics expressed new textures and a new sense of expressive decoration.
With a key statement in slick, refined tailoring and outspoken outerwear.

I created 5 themes to highlight the most dominant trends. 
Urban Metropolis, Love & Shadows, Global Pioneers, Pilgrim Shelter, The Treasure Box.
