runway : Bibian Blue spring/summer 2013

Bibian Blue, a designer based out of Barcelona, Spain, is known mostly for her ability to showcase and, more importantly, reinvent the corset, taking it to all new levels of beauty, elegance, and edginess. Her recent spring/summer collection, aptly entitled Roses Lullaby, was unveiled at Valencia Fashion Week where Bibian Blue showcased an elaborate array of fun spring inspired designs paired tastefully with corsets. In collaboration with illustrator Victoria Francés, and influenced by the season, the designer elevated the humble floral print to new and excited levels of edginess. The girlish mood of the collection is set perfectly by the pretty pastels, and lovely shades of light vanilla and chocolate, that adorn each garment. Favoring light and airy fabrics like lace, gauze, and tulle, Bibian Blue features a variety of pieces from short skirts and pant suits to party dresses and break-taking floor-length gowns. Gloriously feminine, this collection is an excellent representation of girlesque charm, and definitely takes inspiration from the events of childhood. While the collection may be all sugar and spice and everything nice, it is clear that there is something a little darker going on beneath the surface, and that is what makes this collection so intriguing.
