Ann Taylor Spring 2013 Preview
Last Friday, at their spring preview in New York City, Ann Taylor presented a covetable collection of sleek dresses and fresh prints that will be sure to brighten your work wardrobe in just a few months. “For spring I was really thinking about the idea of this modern, strong woman who still wants to be pretty,” Lisa Axelson, Ann Taylor’s senior vice president of design, told us. “You’re going to see a lot of florals, but it’s not the garden-variety ones. They’re stronger and more modern.”rnrnAt the presentation, held at the Ann Taylor headquarters in Times Square, models stood in front of walls decorated with thousands of fresh(!) flowers wearing snazzy head-to-toe prints, plenty of colour-blocked separates, and classic coats in supersaturated hues. Floral suits, fitted shift dresses and sharp cropped trousers rounded out the rest of the collection, which will arrive in stores starting in January.
