Candice Swanepoel Shows Off Juicy Couture’s Fun, LA Spring Style


Juicy Couture Spring 2013 Presentation

Not only did Juicy Couture bring back its signature tracksuit with an evolved, more mature fit at Wednesday evening’s Spring 2013 show at Lincoln Center, but the brand debuted a glitzy, fun video showcase, highlighting the best of the collection donned by South African fashion industry darling Candice Swanepoel.

Though the show represents Juicy Couture’s official debut at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week, the spring video features absolute Los Angeles allure.  Directed by actress/director/LA native Zoe Cassavetes, with music by the band Best Coast, the film is flirty and upbeat.  Swanepoel dances in polka-dot cut-offs and a printed boho jumpsuit.  The “mini-film” (could this be a new genre, we wonder?) even pays homage to Twitter’s 140 characters, limiting itself to a timeframe of 1:40.

The show, and the pieces highlighted in the video, were inspired by Fifties pin-up fashion reinterpreted in a fresh, contemporary way.  Juicy Couture’s Creative Director, LeAnn Nealz, says “the collection has a subtle sexiness carried throughout — but still feels Juicy and fun.”  We couldn’t agree more — and we can’t wait for spring to snag that short romper, perfectly emblematic of the look, which Swanepoel sports in the film.
