ELSA ADAMS | SPRING / SUMMER 2013
Elsa Adams Spring / Summer 2013 was made for the ultra-feminine. Its dusty stone palette was set in fine lace and set off with exquisite beading and embellishments. Although her Spring / Summer 2013 line included a handful of sweet ensembles, there was a clear focus on the comfort and ease that comes with a signature one piece.
Her dresses, beautifully crafted in 3D effect fine French lace, led the way for the Spring / Summer 2013 collection and were accessorised with chunky stone bracelets and necklaces. The collection could almost be described as a line for the high fashion earth mother. Elsa Adams’ lace, often made with two or more different coloured threads, looked like the roots of a tree and gave the collection its earthy feel. It had an easy and wearable feel even amongst all the painstaking embroideries and shimmering embellishments.
The show began with two-pieces; a wrap around white skirt was matched with a round neck zipped lace jacket, wide-leg, floor-grazing white linen trousers came paired with a white lace sweater and a pair of silvery grey shorts were worn with a silk camisole. The ensembles were closely followed by Adams’ dresses; an A-line shift dress came in that same silvery grey lace and was embellished with intricate bead detailing around the neck and a dusty pink one shoulder maxi dress made a lasting impression. Pinks were seen elsewhere in the Elsa Adams Spring / Summer 2013 collection, with a breezy sheer dress echoing the underwear as outerwear trend that has been steadily flowing throughout designers’ collections over the past few seasons.
The show was complete when two flower girls scattered white rose petals across the runway to mark the entrance of a Grecian-style bridal dress with a beaded waist belt and thigh-high slit, accessorised with two statement silver cuffs.
