Jenny Packham Fall 2013 Collection took us back to 17th century Paris–affectionately entitled “La Salonnière,” Packham’s fall collection took its inspiration from the intellectual salons of 17th century Paris.
From that inspirational stand point, Packham sent out party and evening wear in shades of midnight blue, scarlet reds, and cinnamon. Hand-beaded and embroidered embellishments were found on a number of the feminine silhouettes. She started off strong with a lovely flowing peach confection. Sheer and flowing layers literally glide down the runway. Form fitting & figure flattering silhouettes capture the eyes and retain them. Ultra glamorous silk made a compelling appearance.
The collection is a blend of richly embellished fabrics that are full of delicate and abundant sequins and beading. Packham had a few interesting ideas, like creating a kind of flock pattern with sequins, and her dangling paillettes created a nice sense of movement. Stand out piece included the pairing of a billowing silk skirt with a textured, cropped & beaded sweater.
With elegant slim shapes and flowing silks and chiffon with sparkle aplenty, there were quite a few dresses that looked like they were made especially for a grand party. Packham provided a wide selection of glamorous options for those with busy social or red carpet schedules. Elegant yet contemporary, her collection is perfect for the modern woman who wants to look up to date yet timeless.
