Veronique Leroy S/S 2013

Paris: Veronique Leroy presented one of her most compelling collections for spring, an experiment in texture and geometric pattern. From felted wool to a range of cloqués to spongy bouclé, the mix of textures made for a rich visual experience. The designer also including a striking chainlink-patterned lace, which, in addition to similarly-shaped laser cutouts, was a new take on transparency. Wisely, Leroy kept the shapes simple, allowing for the fabrics to take center stage. A-line skirts, strapless sheaths, and duster coats were the foundation of the collection. Like Balmain and other Paris designers, Leroy opted for a wide-shouldered silhouette, an on-trend shape that made the textural looks all the more appealing. –Joanna Manganaro
