Springing Ahead: Modern Vintage

As I sit on the train under my New York City layers, I find myself dreaming about Spring and it's upcoming trends. One of my favorite trends for this Spring season is the modern take on some vintage looks. Designer Stacey Bendet, for Alice + Olivia, did her own remake of the "mod" look using her fun and playful feminine aesthetics. While designer Joy Cioci made a splash with her own take on 1920s and 30s decades.

Reasons to love that the Mod look is making a comeback this Spring: 1. Lots of A-Line and Fit and Flares which look great on anybody type 2. more modest hemlines make outfits chicly appropriate for the office.
Stacy Bendet is no stranger when it comes to beautiful feminine frocks and this season she nailed the mod style perfectly with pastel colors, body flattering dresses, and bold prints. Also her undeniable flare of making clothes look young, new, and playful. This collection has everything a woman needs in her closet-- clothes that take you from day to night, weekend wear, and beautiful evening wear. It's really hard not to love this collection from head to toe to handbag.

Stepping into Joy Cioci's Spring 2013 preview was like stepping back into the 1920s/30s. Cioci gave a huge nod to the synchronized swimmers of this period with her swimmer bonnets. Whether you would personally wear one or not you can't help but appreciate the details in the design. Some adored with pearls and lace others simply made with lace and fabric. Maybe these won't be as a big of a hit with the everyday woman, more like with the Anna Dello Russo crowd, but her Spring 2013 collection is for the woman who isn't afraid of being bold. Contrasting prints are seen throughout the collection along with lace and skin bearing clothing.

What do you think of these collections? Are you ready to mix some old decades in with the new?

  1. The Joy Cicoci collection is gorgeous, I love the fashion of the 20's. I think the floor length lace dress is my favourite, so delicate & beautiful, but I love the pearl encrusted back of the pale blue one too!
