Charlotte Ronson’s Spring 2013 was a packed house, filled with anxiously waiting attendees and some celeb sightings, including Rachel Zoe and her husband Roger, Kimora Lee Simmons, and Tinsley Mortimor.
The feeling was electric as we waited for the show to start, and only intensified as the first models sauntered down the runway in crop tops, jumpsuits, and trumpet hems . Athletic touches and sporty details were a prominent theme throughout as Ronson incorporated mesh, color blocked running shorts and, the star of the show, sheer plastic varsity jackets.
Ronson’s strong athletic theme was reined in by soft and romantic touches including soft pastels like canary yellow and baby blues, flowing hems lines, and pretty cutouts. By the time the lights came back on, I and everyone around me wanted to be a Charlotte girl: ladylike with a twist of athletic and a dash of plastic.
Trend forcast: Canary yellow (second time we’ve seen this hue!), ultra sheer seperates, sporty asthetics, and the varsity jacket reinvented.
