The Rue du Mail Spring/Summer 2013 Women’s Ready-to-Wear Collection brought together a curious mix of ‘60s-inspired shift dresses and totally new millennium looks. Beginning with a series of monochrome sheer georgette silk shift ensembles that came studded with little disc appliqués, Martine Sitbon led her audience through what appeared to be a journey back in time with geometric vinyl-esque bits laced through dainty dresses.
Rimmed in embroidery and sci-fi inspired lacework gave the dresses an added dimension while interesting silhouettes kept the number peppy and contemporary. As the show progressed, the circular motif evolved into abstract floral designs with Japanese woodcut-like outlines throwing in a hint of Asian influence into the collection. Still continuing with the abstract patterns, the collection was then led into more cherry blossom-like hues though monochrome schemes dominated the line by far.
The line included something for every kind of girl with cutout pencil skirts and sheer printed blouson jackets for the businesswoman, laser cut leather dresses and sleeveless band leader blouses for the club-hopper, oversized blanket coats and sheer sheaths for the fashionable college girl and stiff t-shirt dresses for the naughty but nice girl next door. The collection was accessorized with graphic metal brooches, peep toe sandals in a metallic finish, cap toe high heeled sneakers and sheer ankle boots that offered plenty of lookbook inspiration to the everyday fashionista.
