Kaelen Spring '13

Nancy observes the Kaelen Spring 2013 Collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week 

Judging from the Kaelen Spring 2013 Presentation, peplums will be on trend for at least another season. I suppose if they are as well made as the ones below, this fad can still be fresh for Spring 2013. 


The clothes fell into the category of closet staples for me; it consisted of well made, tailored pieces in neutral basic colors. The only color was a bright pop of yellow seen in the shirt dress below, which we're seeing a lot of this Fashion Week season. Fun color, but not digging the egg like shoulder pads. 


While the vertical patterns seen on some of the dresses and flare pants intrigued me, there was nothing particularly striking or memorable in the collection. Most pieces remained simple, delivering clean cuts and flattering lines. On trend, Kaelen samples the pattern on pattern look we will be seeing a lot of, on the left. The dress on the right, however simple, would be my personal favorite piece of the presentation.
