Drawing inspiration from the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival in California, Chadwick Bell's Fall 2013 collection is the embodiment of the au courant power-woman. While applying primary colors to straightforward shapes, he created a sophisticated assortment day-to-night separates. Painterly shades of red, blue, emerald, and gray took form in everything from cropped jackets to cowlneck blouses. A leopard print fur jacket, metallic cocoon coat, and satin emerald tent dress say "I was once a folk enthusiast but now work for the Guggenheim." The colored socks paired with sandals? Those really seal the deal.
