Attention-Seeking Extras From The Spring Runways

-------

Many of us here at Style.com are focused on streamlining our wardrobes with pared-down pieces for 2013. But the showy street-style set? Not so much. For those looking to attract the attention of Tommy Ton and Co. at the collections next month, more will still be more, particularly when it comes to accessories. Chanel’s oversize hula-hoop bag, the Alexander McQueen beekeeper hats, and Miuccia Prada’s towering Geta platforms are just the beginning of Spring’s offerings. How about Stephen Jones’ shattered-glass headpieces for Giles? Or the fabulously rococo bow-trimmed boots at Meadham Kirchhoff? Either of the above would surely whip the photobloggers into a frenzy. As for the colorful mink pumps Phoebe Philo put on her Céline runway, we’re betting on them as this season’s answer to Balenciaga’s ubiquitous Egyptofunk sweatshirts.

Ta-Ta, 2012!

-------

It’s been quite a year. The world didn’t end (hurrah!), but it was shaken up by fashion feuds, historic designer switch-ups, and the roiling of the runway, the red carpet, and the street. (And that’s not even counting the election, the world economy, and the intricacies of the current geopolitical moment.)

We here at Style.com are taking the next few days off to gear up for what’s to come in 2013. We hope you’ll join us in putting on your best party dress (or suit, like this sequin number by Meadham Kirchhoff) and raising a glass to ring in the new. If you need any suggestions, our archive is your oyster: all the fashion the runway has to offer. Happy browsing. Here’s wishing you a very happy New Year; we’ll be back Wednesday, January 2.

A Cautionary Tale, By Meadham Kirchhoff

-------

Ed Meadham and Ben Kirchhoff are two designers who know how to deliver a real show on the runway. This season, the Meadham Kirchhoff recipe for success included parlor scene vignettes (custom-made by the team at de Gournay), cupcakes, lavish bouquets of flowers, and clothes injected with a dash of nostalgia and glamour. Here, Style.com shares an exclusive video from the show. “There is something so exclusive and privileged about catwalk shows, and we try to make them an intimate experience for the audience,” the design duo tells Style.com. “The film should be a reflection of that moment.” Watch that moment come to life in the video above.

Exclusive: Meadham Kirchhoff Spring ’13 Preview

-------

Ed Meadham and Ben Kirchhoff’s Fall collection was rainbow-hued and full of sparkle, a look they said was inspired by a club they wanted to go to, if only it existed. For Spring, it appears the element of fantasy is still strongly intact. The Meadham Kirchhoff designers gave Style.com an exclusive preview of what is to come at their London show tomorrow, and Meadham’s sketch is pictured above. “I wanted this collection to take me as far away as possible from my own reality, and in particular from Dalston,” he says. “It’s about the dream of escape. It is a fantasy of opulence, decadence, glamour, and wealth.” Check back tomorrow to see the full collection and our review.

A Minnie Moment

-------

Last fall, it was Miss Piggy who had a serious moment on the fashion scene, thanks to her role in the Muppets film as a Paris Vogue editor and the resulting collaborations, editorials, and beauty deals). This season, however, there’s another lovable starlet who is set to stage a fashion week comeback: Minnie Mouse. British Vogue reports today that Minnie is getting a style upgrade, courtesy of designers including Richard Nicoll, Giles Deacon, Piers Atkinson, and Meadham Kirchhoff. As part of the Disney collaboration, the designers will be creating one-off garments (called the Minnie Mouse Must Haves), inspired by her signature bow and polka dots, during London fashion week. Afterwards, the items will be auctioned off on eBay to benefit the Fashion Arts Foundation. Whether we will also be seeing her cohorts, like Mickey Mouse, Daisy Duck, and Donald Duck, also hit the runway, remains uncertain for now.
