Clash picks out ruffles as a trend for SS13.

One of our favourite trends from the SS13 shows has been the ruffles! Out came show after show with ruffles, ruffles, ruffles. Each had a similar feeling but reminded us of something totally different. Givenchy's ruffles had a sci-fi vibe while Isabel Marant's were gypsyish and JW Anderson's reminded us of a catholic boarding school's cheerleading squad. Mother of Pearl's leather ruffled skirt is like a bed valance and Balenciaga's ruffles remind us of an expertly removed orange peel.

So the rule-it seems-is the more ruffles the better, remember there are no cheap frills!
