Black and Cream
H&M keeps it simple in their latest Spring 2013 look-book, working with interesting silhouettes using predominately black, cream, and splashes of red. The variety in shape and structure is refreshing (though not necessarily new). It’s nice to see a mass retailer willing to experiment with — or “borrow”, some might say — the oversized jackets and thick, embroidered sweaters we’ve seen designers whipping up over the last year or so. We’re excited to see these looks out in stores. One question: Will 2013 be the year we see the return of the bolo tie?
