Tom Ford embraced monochrome in his SS13 collection

Tom Ford embraced monochrome in his Spring/Summer collection

There are always so many trends to come out of fashion weeks that you never know where to start. But for me, one colour trend that stood out in the SS13 shows was how many designers used monochrome so prominently in their collections.

I loved how designers used this simple colour combo to reference so many eras, from the sixties (Tom Ford, Marc Jacobs), to the futuristic (Alexander Wang, Gareth Pugh) whilst others used it to simply make outfits look sexy, sophisticated and fresh.
