Next Season, Stripes Look More Like Bar Codes

Prada’s colorful horizontal stripes were the most ubiquitous trend of spring 2011, while more muted versions showed up in Chanel, Thakoon, and Doo.Ri’s pre-fall 2012 collections. Though the pattern will never really fall out of favor (the Breton stripe shirt attests to that!), spring 2013’s stripes are more supermarket checkout friendly — with a sixties slant. With its sequins, Marc Jacobs’s stripes conjured a modern-day Edie Sedgwick, while over in Milan, Les Copains applied the print to a body-skimming sheath. At Moschino, it was a mod world, with models in teased hair and graphic stripes.
