Show Review: Duro Olowu Spring 2013
By Faith

Let’s face it: virtually every designer does prints. Out of all of the hundreds each season, I bestow Duro Olowu with the title of my favorite print master. He has a way of being fashion forward and bold, yet so breathtaking even the most timid would want to try his pieces on for size. He paired all of his latest designs for Spring 2013 with nude pumps to let his eye-popping dresses and separates have their own stage.

Though Spring is normally characterized by bare thighs and midriffs, Olowu kept the hemlines long and the silhouettes quite covered. Long sleeves played on printed contrast-pattern lapel blazers and no button was left undone on dresses where lengths fell slightly above the knee.

How many prints can one mix? There were no bounds here, creating a kind of patchwork effect with varying florals, abstract patterns, graphic prints and more.

Will any stylish stars be brave enough to wear his gowns on the red carpet? I would love to see Joan Smalls or Jessica Alba work them!

What do you think? Did any looks catch your eye?
