#2--Pastel Mania

For Spring of 2013, I hope to continue seeing pastels. Pastel colors were all over the runways for Spring 2012 collections which are currently hitting stores. While shopping the market place a bit here in New York City, it seems that customers are responding very strongly in a positive manner to these fun spring colors. In the Spring 2012 collections, pastels were mostly brought to viewers attentions through color blocking as shown below.

Calvin Klein Collection S12

Prada S12

I believe pastels will be brought into the Spring 2013 shows in a different manner. I think they will most likely make the re-appearance through patterns. Wheather they be florals or animal prints, I believe the consumers will welcome these fun color palletes as a change to the current neon trends and after such a drab winter season. Something more along these lines is what I see is yet to come for S13. Or patterns made of pastels.

Here are images I have found that have further inspired me to believe pastels are here to stay:


  1. Oh, I love the macaron-colored clothes! They look punchy and modern when colorblocked, and not at all like a wimpy pastel with a black animal print over it.

  2. Love the pictures! You continue to wow me with your selection of California style pictures- it's totally "your thing." I agree with your suggestion of pastel colors for Spring 2013. While I love black just as much- if not more, than the next person, there's something about these pastels colors that just make everything right in the world. It's bad enough that the economy is dragging many people down, but a little color in people's lives will go a long way.

    Keep up the great work!!

  3. I love your post! And I agree with the trend. Pastels are great and so are your pictures!
