Trend Watch: Black on Black Pre-Fall 2013 “key looks”

Yes you’ve heard it right!  The new trend for pre-fall 2013 collections is black on black…. on black!  Literally it’s become a big hit this season.  According to a few sources, designers are featuring  “All things in the moody, classic shade.”  [WWD].  Some designers which have taken on this trend are Helmut Lang, Reed Krakoff, DKNY, Sportmax and many more!

Below is one of the looks from Sportmax’s pre-fall 2013 collection.  It’s a very detailed head-to-toe look that I  stood out amongst the others from the collection.  Everything from the hat, to the bag, shoe, pant and coat has a cool and easy sleekness.  This is great because this look can be worn separately into your wardrobe making them “key pieces”.

The look below is one from Celine.  A favorite among many, this look is very extreme yet sharp.   The collection this pre-fall season constructed beautiful statement pieces which again, can be worn separately.   The top is a peplum latex longsleeve worn over a high white collar, playing with shapes and structure.  The bottom is a loose flowy pant that balances the look into a complete innovative black on black Celine look!

Ending it off right, Helmut Lang’s collection was very etherial, feminine and classic.  Playing with texture, he kept the color palette very much in gray, white and BLACK family.  The look below showcases Lang’s brilliant take on a feminine look that is both dressy and casual.  The edgyness of the look is what drew me in.  It can be worn at night with a warm coat, clutch and a bright lip, or during the day.  Worn as is with a structured top and a fabulous black skirt with killer stilettos!  You’ll be sure to have heads turning.

Another day, another mind-bending celestial discovery. A sun-like star in our solar system’s backyard may host five planets, including one perhaps capable of supporting life as we know it, a new study reports. Sources say it may be a water world but it’s anyones guess at this point.
