Matches recently held a press day for bloggers and journalists alike to view the SS13 collection first before anyone else! C+S were fortunate enough to get an invite to the exclusive event which is great because Matches is one of our favourite shops. The SS13 is an eclectic mix of couture with global brands such as Jill Sander, Isabel Marant, Maison Martin Margiela and Versace – as well as contemporary brands such as Iro, House of Holland and Kenzo.
The themes ranged from Couture Remix to Sheer Delight (a personal favourite – delicate fabrics with plenty of embellishment and detail), Geometry Class and Global Magpie – A mix of ethnic prints, fabrics and vibrant colours.
Matches SS13 trends and themes will include unset hues of reds, pinks and burnt oranges. There is a huge 1990’s influence too with relaxed style sportswear and easy to wear jerseys. See my favourite pieces from the preview below:
