Spring ’13 Trend: Perforated Perfection

March 15, 2013 • Fashion Blog, Trends


Who would ever think we’d actually want to pay for items with holes in them? Yet, if you saw the Spring ’13 runways of Proenza Schouler, Reem Acra, Ohne Titel and even Tracy Reese you would know that it’s all about perforation. It actually makes leather look light and ethereal which are two words one normally does not use describing leather. Look for holes and laser cuts in apparel, shoes and bags. Isn’t it time to be a cut above all your leather clad friends? Take it to the next level. We even love perforated jewelry, so don’t overlook the metals. Here are 10 perforated items we are loving right now:

1. Jimmy Choo Malika Perforated Suede Sandals, $995

2. Marc by Marc Jacobs Mouse Ballerina Flat, now $131

3. Kenneth Cole New York Perforated Bomber Jacket , $98

4. Marni Perforated Top Handle Bag, $1300

5. Donna Karan Collection Perforated Suede Jacket, $3,290

6. Kelly Wearstler Cabochon Perforated Cuff, $295

7. Acne Olivine Hole Clutch, $460

8. Manolo Blahnik Sharifac Perforated Loafer, $725

9. Reed Krakoff Perforated Boxer Tote, $1490

10. Jules Smith Perforated Bangle Set, $110
