New York Fashion Week Spring 2013: Viktor Luna

Power couples. That’s how Viktor Luna presented his spring 2013 collection. Couples that covered the gamut in styles and stories ranging from the punk rock duo to the bride and groom. There was also the two that could rev up a cocktail party and your stylish city dwellers that pulled off his heavy metal print in a raincoat and pant in harmony. Informed by summers spent on Mexico’s coast, his music days and the eclectic energy of New York, the looks are a fit for the modern man and woman as it balances a subtle touch of edge with sophistication for life’s most important and everyday occasions.

In his first set, a man in a sharp black tuxedo jacket with intricate Spanish-inspired ribbon embroidery covered throughout proved that detailed craftsmanship was his forte. On his side, his demure better half in an ivory crepe georgette wedding gown and veil. Using neoprene, seemingly the material du jour, a black cocktail dressed embroidered with a heart motif and embellishments paired with the same material in a jacket and pant for her male counterpart, he showed a twist on the familiar.

There were some looks that went solo. The Volcano dress cut in a sweetheart bodice and curved yoke at the hips accentuated the body in all the right places. In a radiating orange reminiscent of lava with a Rorschach inkblot-like repeat, it stole the show. The print also worked well in other silhouettes like a jacket for him and a slim fitting trouser for her.

Swarovksi Crystal Elements were placed in all the right places: the neckline of his gorgeous navy pinktuck evening gown, bow ties and waistbands and offered the right amount of detail to enhance and balance out spring.
