NEW YORK, Feb. 17, 2013/ FW/ — Entitled ‘Nanette Lepore Discusses her Fall/Winter 2013 Collection’, for her Fall 2013 collection, the designer, Nanette Lepore drew inspiration from all of the excitement surrounding the landing on Mars.
Fashion Windows catches up with Nanette Lepore to discuss her Fall 2013 collection and her radiant hologram-effect and glistening, nature-inspired ensembles evoking Lepore’s inspiration of the landing on Mars.
Fashion Windows: What was your inspiration for your Fall 2013 collection?
Nanette Lepore: For my Fall 2013 collection theme of the landing on Mars, I took inspiration from a section of Earth, and starting designing my collection with a granite-printed texture, then re-arranged to a watery garden print, then I took inspiration from a midnight garden to create modern, futuristic silhouettes. These Fall season looks are familiar to one another and therefore, create an emotional tie, but this season’s looks are also fresh and diverse in light and color.
FW: What fabrics and colors did you use for your Fall collection?
NL: Hues for the Fall collection included black, deep olive, midnight violet, and turquoise, as well as the collection included hologram hues of orange and blue that glistened against the collection’s textured pieces.
As for textures, we introduced a lot of new fabrics and surface textures this season, including a new rubbery-coated plastic fabric, and for the first time we featured a new quilted texture.
FW: What is your favorite look in your Fall collection?
NL: I am really excited for the coats in my collection, particularly a gorgeous swing coat.
I am also excited about our sexy dresses and new suit looks with elongated jackets.
FW: Anything else to add regarding your Fall 2013 collection?
NL: I have to add lastly that what is so great about this collection is that this season’s looks can transcend from day to night, so women have the best of both worlds wearing Nanette Lepore ensembles.
Nanette Lepore also recently re-launched the Nanette Lepore Fall 2013 shoes and handbags line, so the Fall 2013 collection included booties, belts, handbags, and camera bags in hues of black, olive, as well as these pieces came in hologram shades of orange and turquoise.
