Versus spring 2013

No half measures: hot pink, electric blue, red and yellow these are the strong colors of Versus spring 2013 collection. The main theme? Chains printed on dresses and used as decorative element. They are sewed around collars, on bags and shoes , they are necklaces, belts and then cover entire pieces of clothing like tops and skirts. Plastic chains are colored and light weighted; they can be a wonderful element to create a spring accessory.

 Fucsia, blu elettrico, rosso giallo:colori accesi senza mezze misure per la collezione primaverile di Versus.
Tema principale della collezione? Le catene riprodotte sulle stampe degli abiti ma soprattutto utilizzate come elemento decorativo. Adornano colletti, scarpe, borse, cinte poi diventano vere e proprie collane e cinte fino a ricoprire interamente top e gonne. Christopher Kane ci offre molti spunti per il fai da te. Le catene in plastica, leggere e colorate ben si prestano a diventare degli splendidi accessori per l'estate.

Cute idea, I think one can get chunky plastic chain on ebay or etsy. I had not checked but just think it would be easy to get...
