Retro Color-Blocking Collections

Alexander Lewis Pre-Fall Line 2013 Blends Color and Retro Styling

— January 23, 2013 — Fashion
The Alexander Lewis Pre-Fall 2013 collection is beautifully styled to represent strong, modern day working women, with a hint of retro appeal. From stunning tailored suits to 70s-inspired trousers, this pre-fall collection is the perfect combination of retro and modern styling.

Using a simple birch tree bark background, Lewis was able to contrast it beautifully with his collection using bold yet simplistic colors. His collection includes beautiful color-blocked shirts, knit sweaters, bold hats and sleek tailored suits. With lovely geometric-patterned jackets, and the combination of neutral, soft and bold colors, these pieces make for a wonderfully striking collection.
