Keeping Up With Karla: Bold Strokes

W’s Fashion Market and Accessories Director, Karla Martinez, takes note.

In thinking about the spring collections, the most vivid image that comes to mind is the opening look at Marc Jacobs: a striped T-shirt worn as a simple tunic top by newcomer Ruby Jean. It set the tone for a season that’s filled with punchy colors, graphic prints, and a slew of op art patterns. Whether it’s Michael Kors’s rugby-stripe knit shirt and pleated skirt or Proenza Schouler’s collage dresses assembled from photographs of protesters and people in a swimming pool, these are strong, streamlined pieces that command attention. Indeed, Fendi’s new tote, which comes with a classic Baguette attached in traffic-stopping red and orange, got mine. Two bags in one? Now that’s a bright idea.
