Candela for Fall 2013 showed saloon inspired looks with hints of sparkle here and there. Think cotton sweatshirt with fringe down the back of the arms dangling down and made of the same sweatshirt material. Now pair that with a glass beaded skirt that was right from the Wild West.
Thing about showing a collection in a studio setting at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is that the room is a bit tight and getting photos can be a challenge. Fortunately, photographer Matthew St. James was able to capture some great detail shots from the collection and left nothing out. From printed tops to intricate pins placed on sweaters resembling anchors and crosses. Too cool!
The styling was not in line with how I’d like to see my ladies but in the end I understood the designers perspective an can see how the elements if western bar maid and sparkling stage girl played well together.
