Belgian husband-wife duo An Vandevorst and Filip Arickx brought major drama to the Parisian runway with their Spring 2013 collection. All their models strutted with either black or white sheer hats that were tilted to the side, covering their faces. Some even had their faces painted gold. Leather, asymmetrical hemlines, and fringe were standouts in the show. Black, white, red, turquoise, and gold were the colors of choice, while fabrics ranged from leather and satin to silk and cotton. The most controversial moment happened when a model walked down the runway wearing nothing but white trousers and peep-toe boots — up top, her chest was painted gold in the shape of a strapless top.
July might be all about beaches and outdoor concerts but there's also Spring 2012 Berlin Fashion Week, which just wrapped up over the weekend. Colors were bright and silhouettes stayed modern, with prominent hues of blue, yellow, pink, and green splashed on a bevy of printed trousers, gowns, and playful separates. Check out our roundup of Berlin's best, spotlighting a range of beautiful to avant-garde creations from designers like Escada Sport, Iris van Herpen, Stephan Pelger, and A.F.
