Carin Wester, Spring/Summer 2013 Collection

The Carin Wester Spring/Summer 2013 Collection for Women and Men, “A power suit’s diary,” was shown during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Stockholm, and you can see from the video that it was standing-room only.

Much of the clothing has a simple, clean look, though that has been a consistent thread through many of her collections.  I loved the skirts and the large handbags that were folded over.  There was also a thigh-length cut to the jackets that worked quite well.

The looks for men included short-legged pants and sport coats.  The buttons for the men’s jackets were placed at the bottom (and both sets were buttoned), and it seemed strange, at first.  By the end of the collection, it had grown on me and it was evident how they worked with the entire collection.

As will all of Carin Wester’s collections, there is a nice sense of continuity.  You can see traces of where she has been in recent collections, but she is certainly not designing more of the same for each new season.  I hope you enjoy the collection.

About Carin Wester

A graduate of Beckman’s Design School, Carin Wester began designing the Women’s collection for Paul & Friends. In 2003, she began her own clothing line and has been winning awards since. 2004 Newcomer of the year (Elle), 2005 Designer of the year (Elle), Entrepreneur of the Year (Ernst & Young), and the “Guldknappen” award from the Swedish magazine Damernas Värld are some of her recognitions, but in my opinion, her work speaks for itself.
