Monochrome springtime shocker

As a colour enthusiast I'm not usually a fan of monochrome, but I could not be happier to see the Black and White takeover of the Spring/Summer 2013 catwalk. What a refreshing change from pastel florals, who'd have thought- black and white in spring!

Another springtime shocker was the dominance of geometrics on the catwalk from diagonal stripes to the checkerboard designs championed by Louise Vuitton. Designers seem to have all shared a desire to return to the 60's in their SS13 collections. Many used bright, borderline garish, pops of colour to brighten up their designs (Issey Miyake, Balmain, Unique and Holly Fulton) yellow being a particluar favourite.

The best from the high street:

A disappointing lack of yellow, but, let's be honest, yellow isn't the most commercial of colours as so few people can wear it well. Still a promising response to the catwalk from the high street stores. As it's my birthday weekend I intend to indulge myself with a little monchromatic shopping fix. 
That's all for now x
