As Milan Fashion Week Spring 2013 comes to an end, it’s obvious who the key players are in influencing what will dictate the top trends of Spring 2013. The pieces you once thought were only Fall/Winter specific (ie. fur and leather)? Designers are very loudly telling you otherwise. In Milan this season, it looks as if designers have collectively developed a “go big or go home” philosophy with their use of fabrics, hefty embellishments and mannish silhouettes.

The truth lies in Paris where the Spring 2013 collections will get their final verdict. Certain trends that have dominated New York, London and Milan have obviously secured their spot next season but it will be interesting to see the Parisian approach to Spring 2013. As of now, it’s clear what direction fashion is headed in, but you never know what those French masters have up their sleeves—don’t start pulling out the leather and stripes yet, Paris may throw us for a curveball.
