MANICURE MUSE: Balmain Spring ‘13
For Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain Spring ’13 collection, the theme is go big or go home. And no, it’s not about the 1980s perm. Instead, its about the nineties power suit that generously welcomes the shoulder pad back with the series of oversize smoking jackets with a serious shoulder. “It’s the nineties, Latin-style,” Rousteing declared. The Latin part came by way of leather crop tops, oversized hoop earrings, harlequin prints, and the elaborate woven wicker pieces inspired by Cuba.One thing is for sure– Rousteing never fails at producing a show that sizzles. The glam-chic Balmain power woman is definitely someone to aspire to.

MANICURE MUSE: Peter Pilotto Spring ‘13
Appreciating Peter Pilotto takes some training, since it’s easy to get overwhelmed due to overstimulation. For Spring ’13, the masters of digital prints, Christopher de Vos and Peter Pilotto, innovate even further. This season they build patterns not only using prints, but also by using beadwork, embroidery, and sculpted knots. What I always appreciate season after season is how they are able to create clothes that move with a woman’s body using curvilinear color-blocking. This sweater is definitely one to keep your eyes peeled for. In the meantime, take a look at my picks of color-blocked sweaters for Fall.

MANICURE MUSE: Christopher Kane Spring ‘13
Monster goth goes femme for Christopher Kane’s quirky Spring ’13 collection. Frankenstein gets the runway treatment quite literally as the source of inspiration. Offbeat details like rubbery bows and black electrical tape (pictured here) make ladylike looks an edge, but it’s the Frankenstein screen tees that give the collection an electric jolt. I’m going to need one of those ASAP.

MANICURE MUSE: Proenza Schouler Spring ‘13
We can always rely on Jack and Lazaro to push the modern envelope, but leave it to them to design a collection that mirrors the information overload of The Digital Age. For Spring ‘13, Proenza Schouler looks to Tumblr for inspiration by featuring photo prints of random images found on the site. But it was the open patchwork and perforated leather in hi-def colors of electric acid green and red with black and white that stole the show for me. The recolored snakeskin and digital prints incorporated into the color blocking gives the collection a techno-feel. Call me “easy to please,” but somehow the beginning look of a show makes the biggest impact. I just can’t seem to shake how amazing this opening number is.

MANICURE MUSE: Diane von Furstenberg Spring ‘13
“Some fairy tales end with the girl marrying the prince… some start there.” And so began the DVF Spring ’13 collection that the designer explained was a reflection of her own personal fairy tale. Wouldn’t it have been a trip to capture the early days of von Furstenberg? Damn the technology that didn’t exist back then. Luckily, our favorite pioneer woman partnered with Google this season to create a glass-less lens glasses called, Glass, that actually capture the wearer’s experience. The collection is vibrant with Furstenberg’s signature Bohemian spirit. There are tons of pretty colors, bold print, and shine and sparkle that will be sure to make any lady feel like a DVF princess.
