If sports are referred to as global religion, fashion must run a close second. This season, Spring-Summer 2013 is truly monumental in sheer number and variety of styles. If anyone had to single-handedly attend all shows, they’d pass out from exhaustion after 2-3 days–despite the excitement and adrenaline rush the week brings.

Colorful prints are out front in everything from florals to geometrics to experimental designs. Not to be left behind the pack, animal prints and camouflage are appearing here and there in subtle, and not-so-subtle interpretations.

But by mid-week, another trend was starting to show form: Ladylike. Yes, there are more than a handful of designers who are looking at that 1 percent for inspiration. Think back to the day when women dressed up to even get the mail; well, lifestyles have surely changed, but dressing with aplomb still stands.

The difference today is that elegance doesn’t have to be too formal; it can actually borrow from sportier looks and even rehabilitate old prototypes.

Looking at some of the new collections it also becomes clear that the first collection of Raf Simons for Christian Dior provided a strong reference point for some designers. In this case, when Mr. Simons’ first collection fell in the middle of the fashion forest many did hear the resounding boom!

Of course there are always innovations and creative gems that not only excite the press, they also contribute to fashion’s own evolution. One of these takes is a somewhat BoHo meets high-tech vibe; one could see it as a sleeker, more polished reformation of past looks which, when wisely reworked, reads original… if not a little avant garde – something the editors live for.
