|Tim Walker for LOVE Magazine Issue 9|
I had already been planning a post on spring's mod resurgence when I spotted these photos by Tim Walker on his site. Published in LOVE Magazine's latest issue and featuring iconic '60s model Peggy Moffit, I now feel completely validated in my fashion forecasting.
To be honest, though, the trend was hard to miss. Marc Jacobs was just one of many designers dabbling in mod for the S/S '13 shows, with a black and white graphic namesake collection and bright, checkerboard prints for Louis Vuitton. Even the ever-colorful Proenza Schouller boys featured an abundance of all red, white and black ensembles on the runway. And then, of course, there's Banana Republic's latest Mad Men collection.
Pulling off the trend in real life can be tricky, but the right pieces will add some drama without verging into costume territory. Give these a try...
Just remember not to wear them all together, and you'll be set.
