The 3.1 Phillip Lim Spring 2013 collection was a veritable mixed bag. The designer showed quirky, cool, '90s-inspired pieces that were equal parts Blossom and My So-Called Life, with a dash of Clarissa Explains It All thrown in. It definitely got us excited to inject some grunge-cool pieces into our Spring wardrobes. Watch the entire show now, and let us know what you think of the collection in the comments!
A clean, monochromatic palette; wide vertical stripes; and an overtly '60s-driven Edie Sedgwick vibe took precedence at the Marc Jacobs Spring 2013 show — and, quite frankly, we're totally digging the throwback to mod wares. In addition to the longer, fluid silhouettes Jacobs presented, he also sent out refreshing bursts of quirkier pieces. The Mickey Mouse-printed cropped sweatshirt, for one, tops our list of things we didn't know we needed but just have to have.

Zac Posen's Spring 2013 runway show was a lesson in 1940s glamour dressing — Naomi Campbell opened the show in a floral wiggle dress, and the rest of the looks followed suit with gorgeous, curve-hugging silhouettes and a romantic palette of navy, cream, burnt orange, and sea-foam green.

Lela Rose has established herself as a go-to designer when it comes to sophisticated yet youthful clothing — and for Spring 2013, her unique brand of glamour was on full blast. Look to her playful use of black spider lace — which found its way onto the waist of crisp white sheaths and the sides of silky pants and was draped over chiffon dresses — as a standout case of evening glitz with a twist. Also worth keeping on your radar? Lela's feminine take on the camouflage print — it's bright, fluid, and eye-catching. Check out the collection in full — click play now!

Alexander Wang never lets us down — his sporty, easy-to-wear separates make our hearts sing every season, and Spring '13 was no different.

Six words for Hervé Léger's Spring 2013 collection: sexy silhouettes and even more harnesses. Not that we're complaining — quite the opposite, actually. If there's one thing we can expect from Max and Lubov Azria, it's a solid lineup of body-con fits, meant to evoke the ultimate in femininity and sultriness. The time around, the husband-and-wife design duo crafted an army of cutout dresses and skin-baring monokinis, all decked out in Southern-inspired patchwork prints, appliqué, embroidery, and — oh yeah — slick leather harnesses and wide, cummerbund-like belts. See it to believe it — here's your front-row view of Hervé Léger's Spring 2013 runway show. Watch it now!
