Women’s SS13

For AR’s SS13 Women’s Pre-Collection, the designers developed the story by limiting themselves to three fundamental colors: navy, black and optical white. The collection expresses the depth of these classic colors, using different materials and textures. Shifting away from strict silhouettes, the fit became slightly oversized to give the collection a relaxed movement.

Each season, fabric selection is a crucial part of AR’s design process. For SS13, silk de chine was explored, bringing fresh life to garments with its beautiful draping qualities. Understated material blocking brought a youthful dimension that drew various statements from one piece, while chiffon was employed for its sheer and airy characteristics that add light accents of femininity. The leather pieces are also extraordinary, employing the finest materials to give The Collection a slight edge to its springtime softness.

The SS13 Pre-Collection clearly demonstrates AR’s aesthetic of timeless conception and impeccable tailoring. Find the complete collection at Aloha Rag.
