London: After last season’s candy-colored Californian extravaganza, Holly Fulton went in a more dark and dangerous direction for F/W 13. If summer was Frenchie from Grease, Fall is Rizzo with its black and red color palette, lashings of leather and spunkier attitude, from the models’ spiky top knots and bold red pouts down to their buckled Beatle boots. The M.C. Escher and Dalí-esque prints Fulton has become known for featured heavily, and new this season were photoreal tiger faces and a polar bear pencil illustration. On paper it all sounds like a bunch of disparate elements, but Fulton pulls references, textures, shapes and prints together effortlessly, like the accomplished collage artist she is. — Natalie Shukur
