    Fall 2013 Fashion Week Runway Recap

    Fall 2013 Fashion Week Runway Recap

    Fall 2013 Fashion Week Runway Recap

    As spring unfolds, the top fashion houses are unveiling what they have dreamed up for fall. From New York and London to Milan and Paris new shapes, patterns, and colors erupted onto the runway. Just to keep you up-to-date on the trends we are coveting for Fall, here is a bit of a recap of whats in store.

    Glinted Sunset Dress

    Cushine et Ochs, Creatures of Comfort and Rachel Comey all had a similar take on the season’s it pattern, “sunspot”. The hybrid between tie-dye and all over print is updated and oh so chic. Krimson Klover’s Glinted Sunset Dress (available August 2013) gives you a taste of the hottest pattern in luxurious and elegant wool with one of the kind hand-painted fabric.  Every dress is painted individually, making each piece unique.

    Fall is about sweaters

    Fall is all about sweaters and some of our favorites were seen on the runway from the likes of Christopher Kane, Theyskens Theory, Alexander Wang, Rag and Bone, Mulberry and 3.1 Philip Lim. Across the board knitwear is a must-have item. All the designers delivered a structured take on knits. The loose turtleneck was seen on many of the models and the tunic shape was also prevalent. For a dressier version of the loose turtleneck you can slip into the Beatrice Dress, another member of our hand painted line.

    High Neck Turtlenecks

    High neck turtlenecks were also moving down the runway from Todd Lynn,  J.W. Anderson and Issa London, to name a few. You can wear these high neck turtlenecks as base layers or wear them as a stand alone piece; in fact you can start right now with our Skye, available online and in magnificent new colors and stripes next fall.

    Bold Colors

    Bold colors and geometric patterns will be everywhere this fall, as exhibited by Matthew Williamson, Daks and Paul Smith- the brighter the better. Give this a try in our Sergent Pepper, Captured Dreams, Poetic Verse and Cool Cat sweaters (available August 2013).  With funky patterns and bold colors these sweaters allow you to update your style- throw them on over another bright color for an up-to-date bold bright mixed color look. The styles that continue to roll down the runways are exciting and interesting and we are eager to try out all the trends for ourselves. When the leaves start to turn you can stay warm and on trend with any of KK's elegant Fall 13 styles.

    Fall 2013 Styles to Get Excited About

    SIA and OR were a success for the KK team.

    Everyone was coming to check out our new booth, chock full of amazing ultra fine merino dresses, skirts, sweaters and accessories.

    Bolshevik sweaters and Ridley skirts

    The space dye trend is still on fire, as far as, top sellers you can look forward to wearing the Bolshevik tunic sweaters and Ridley skirts. Both fabulous warm chunky knits are available in three colors. These designer knitwear pieces will pair perfectly with leggings or our great Cable tights.

    Our patterned skirts were also top sellers at the shows, they pair so well with our Stripe in Time turtlenecks for a fresh mixed pattern look or with the Skye turtlenecks for a more subdued, but equally chic look.  Personally, I can’t wait to rock the sassy and chic patterns next winter.

    Merino wool sweaters

    Merino wool has never looked so good and the crowds agree. The Lola Grey-straight off the runway- was a big hit, with its flattering tunic shape and bold geometric pattern. This dress is a perfect day-to-night piece.

    Space Dye Trend

    Krimson Klover brought the space dye trend over to the sporty side with the Cool Cat zip up sweater.  Après attire will be a cinch in the fresh fun colors that coordinate seamlessly with the bright hues seen in ski wear for Fall ’13. 



    Keeping with the obsession with accessories, we really upped the anti on our line up this year with tons of printed tights and fun socks, as well as, exciting and fashion forward scarves. Come fall we can bundle up in style.

    We are so excited for these fantastic designs to hit the racks in August!

    It may still be winter at home in the Rockies where Krimson Klover comes to life, but that doesn’t keep us from looking forward to warmer weather and spring fashion!

    Bright Colors

    With the rest of the world, we are looking forward to bright colors, breezy fabrics and showing a little bit more skin… and maybe some temperatures in the double digits.

    As models walked the Spring 2013 runways, macramé and cutout clothing were everywhere. We might not be ready to bear our midriffs, but in the Penelope and Mayflower sweaters you can show a little skin and stay on trend with everyone from LA to New York. This fun texture play is the perfect way to transition your style from all bundled up to breezy layers just in time for spring.

    Stripes are back for another season and Krimson Klover has got stripes of all sorts. For the traditional stripe there is the Little Dipper top - comfortable and lightweight, easy to wear from spring to summer. For an abstract take on stripes in vibrant colors we have such styles as the Atypical Situation and the Heart Breaker. These fresh new takes on stripes will add interest to any outfit, and will be the perfect staple for spring fashion, as well as, a summer cover-up after watching the sun sink behind the mountains.

    Tory Burch and Donna Karan proved that “lady like” is very in this season, with a bit of a sporty side. To bring your own laid back “lady like” attitude to your style try the Curves Ahead dress. It’s a perfect combination of feminine and easy to wear.  Available in the of-the-moment color Smokey Blue (one of Pantone’s 10 top colors of the season), a classic graphite and Sangria, because a red dress will never go out of style.

    So go ahead embrace the trends in designer knitwear that you can trust, Krimson Klover has got you covered!
