Calvin Klein Brings Sexy Back / Teatum Jones Equals Perforated Colour / Superdry Becomes High Fashion

As mentioned earlier on in the week, I've been soaking up the AW13 collections through the various press days that have been popping up. On Wednesday, I was invited to the Modus showrooms, one of the bigger PR brands, & got to see some of the clothes from the catwalk, up close. I think possibly my favourite line at the moment is the Calvin Klein AW13 one. I've never been a dedicated fan of Calvin Klein, preferring his simplified, raw Kate Moss years, but the latest collection, full of leather & raw hems, slits & sharp lines, totally sold it to me. Sexy, but in a tough, modern, don't-mess-with-me kind of way.

The other high-end line competing for my affections this season belongs to Pringle of Scotland. To me, the collection kind of splits in two. There's one half which has been worked on through collaborations with Central Saint Martins design students, & the Princess of Monaco, to create a collection inspired by the iconic Grace Kelly. The other half is a representation of white through the creative use of textures to create shadows & perforations & folds. Some of the knitwear has been developed to look like it has been taken straight from the animal, such is the creative use of weaving and knitting. Plus, how cool are the skirt/dungarees that I'm holding up?!

The colours & perforations from Teatum Jones were simply stunning:

...& Toast, a brand beloved by both country-folk and Hollywood alike (Kirsten Dunst adores them):

Skulls always make for good motifs:

... & finally, I also popped by the launch of the new Superdry line, a collection with more of a high-end feel than we're used to, designed by Timothy Everest. It's sort of Japanese branding meets utility meets 1950s housewife meets Jack Wills:
