Hot! Gallery Sneak Peek: Ann Taylor Spring 2013

For spring 2013, the Ann Taylor gal, will travel to an enchanted garden peppered with darlings and sophisticated wares.

Lisa Axelson, Ann Taylor’s senior vice president of design, explained to WWD’s the spring 2013 offerings juxtaposes the “strong, confident, modern woman with the idea of pretty.” The resulting collection, which we previewed last week, of work appreciate ensembles are stylish and true to Ann’s design aesthetic. The pieces feature highly structure silhouettes paired with preppy and pretty florals prints. The offerings continue with a mesmerizing selection of sunny pieces. There’s everything from a bright lemon coat, to a teal top, to a gorgeous pink pant.

Overall, the Ann Taylor will be pleased with what she sees. We certainly are. Take a gander through the collection. What do you think?

  1. The Spring 2013 line is such an unfortunate departure from what Ann Taylor used to represent. Even the beautiful models didn’t look good in the gaudy, cheap looking mix and match prints. If women that beautiful can’t make those outfits work, the rest of us don’t have a chance. The models looked embarrassed to be photographed in the clothing. The fashion industry has gone crazy with the “it’s okay to mix and match prints and colors that don’t go together” trend. It may be considered high-fashion and on trend, but in a few years when women look at photos of themselves dressed in that manner, they will feel regretful. Ann needs to go back to the classic, tailored clothing that made her the go-to store for affluent career women and leave the casual, teen and college-aged trends to Loft. We still look at photos of Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Katherine Hepburn and Jackie O and think how beautiful they were and how beautifully dressed they were. They were elegant, sexy even, and far from frumpy or dowdy. They wore classic, well-cut, beautiful clothing made from real materials such as wool, cotton, and silk. That aesthetic never looks old, outdated or embarrassing. Ann Taylor needs a major overhaul or it is going to lose its best customers.

  2. Wow! R we looking at the same collection? Yes, the collection is fresh but I still think its Ann Taylor. I do see how the mixing of prints can be annoying but that’s a styling choice. You obviously don’t have to wear it that way.
