Basil Soda presented his Fall Winter 2013 ready-to-wear collection at Hotel de Crillon, place de la Concorde. I unfortunately couldn’t see Basil there as he had already flown back to Beirut by the time I went to the presentation but here’s a review of what I could see.
Light blue, black, fuchsia and rose bonbon were the colors for this collection. I was glad that he went for this very girly shade of pink because Basil rarely does so. It was like adding a little breeze to the collection and winter mood. As usual, we could find Basil’s touch in the detailed embroideries. I love how he always mixes pearls and other materials together, it gives another dimension to the dress. The shapes were very interesting, from classic cuts to his more modernly tailored ones. I couldn’t resist a black short dress and I tried it on, what do you think?
