GUESS & Marciano Summer 2013 Collection Preview


For Summer 2013, GUESS envisions a summer filled with shades of blue, crisp whites, tie-dyes, touches of neutral, dazzling prints and bold hues. The collection celebrates the brand’s strong denim DNA with short shorts and jeans that are studded, frayed, ombred, embroidered and printed. Along with denim, leggings, pants and dresses celebrate this classic hue in bohemian silhouettes and trendy tribal patterns.

While the classic denim hue dominated the summer 2013 collection, brights and neutrals are also presented. Bold orange is the dominate bright appearing in lightweight knits, striped tees, ombre and tie-dye denim. Neutrals are available in both classic hues and shapes as well as striking prints (a must have it the olive Military Jumpsuit)


While the GUESS 2013 collection highlighted tribal prints and blues, Marciano Summer 2013 presented colorful and bold topical, eye-catching floral prints and bright hues that make for perfect vacation looks. Island tropic and palm beach prints like hibiscus florals are seen in flowing maxi skirts and blouses, maxi dresses with sexy cutouts and asymmetrical hemlines, off the shoulder blouses, chic jumpsuits, and flirty dresses.

Want a more sleeker, edgier look for your summer nights? Marciano has some standout pieces like their studded leather and sequin jackets, embroidered, lace and crocheted tanks, pants and maxis, sparkling lurex shorts and skirts, animal print rompers, maxis, tanks and tunics as well as classic black and white looks.

Both lines have collections for every woman whether she’s enjoying a weekend away or a night out on the town. 

GUESS & Marciano Spring 2013 Collection

Enchanting spring colors and prints were abound at the GUESS and Marciano Spring 2013 Collection Preview. There’s been a change in GUESS or rather, a revert back to what made it the iconic brand it is today. The collection features 90’s washes in sorbet colors and denim blues, astounding prints such as colorful and tonal florals, tribal, tie-dye, as well as ombre and nautical-inspired looks. The collection also featured a lot of black a white, a trend that is a must for spring

Some of my favorite looks included a lot of the pastel offerings, especially the mint and salmon colored denim. While GUESS gave us the classic and playful sportswear silhouettes, Marciano continued with their more sophisticated body conscious styles.

What other GUESS and Marciano trends do I think will be a hit? The spring staple, Nautical-inspired looks, are sure to captivate and of course the graphic black and white looks

GUESS also introduced a Limited Edition Capsule Collection inspired by music festivals – expect to see these looks at the next Coachella, SWXSW or Bonnaroo music festivals

GUESS & GUESS by Marciano Fall 2012 Collection

GUESS presented a Fall 2012 collection filled with tons of downtown cool, casual chic and sensual on-trend looks. Super skinny jeans in various washes, short and sassy dresses, fun, funky, furry jackets, etc are just some of what GUESS is offering for fall – looks that will get you noticed.

GUESS by Marciano on the other hand oozed stunning sophistication and glamour. Long, elegant dresses, blazers with shimmering collars and lapels, chic lurex slim pants suits, a little white dress with contrasting black lace overlay and gorgeous blush colored looks were some of my favorites but my standout was the stunning long-sleeved, black deep V gown – very sexy, very striking.

I have a few items I’ve added to my fall wishlist, what about you ladies?

Guess Spring/Summer 2012 Footwear and Handbag Collection

There were so many great pieces at the Guess Spring/Summer 2012 preview that I had to do two posts; my first Guess Spring/Summer 2012 Collection post featured clothing, jewelry and watches, this one is all about shoes and handbags. For the footwear collection, Guess and Guess by Marciano featured lots of colors, color blocking and contrast color, mixed prints (love the snakeskin and denim print stiletto with the ankle buckle), and modern silhouettes

We see bold personality in the Guess handbag collection – lots of contrasting color. A favorite among several of the preview’s attendees was the herringbone group (featured directly below) – I love the idea of using color contrast basket weave to create the herringbone effect.

Another favorite was the handbag group with contrast piping, we especially fell in love with the grey bowler with seafoam handles and piping. The hardware adds a bit of edge to this modern silhouette. Of course bold colors are continued on into the handbag collection – we see red, cobalt blue, coral, rich caramel, etc. Keep an eye out for these eye-catching accessories as they will be available in stores soon. I can’t wait for spring.

GUESS by Marciano Unveils Vibrant Advertising Campaign and Collection for Fall 2011

Guess makes a bold statement with a return to color as seen in their Fall 2011 Ad Campaign. The two vibrant ads will begin making appearances in the pages of August issues of magazines, in GUESS by Marciano retail stores and on collateral materials, with pops of red, teal and bold animal prints dominating the spread.

The return to color (last seen in Spring 2009) marks a new direction in both the campaign and overall design of the latest collection. The campaign showcases some of the season’s statement pieces including silk tie-neck blouses, tweed capelets, rich midi-length dresses and demure animal print dresses that embody the perfect balance of a woman’s sensuality and provocative nature. For fall, GUESS by Marciano is all about the woman being a strong, daring and powerful figure, who always exudes elegance and sophistication. The men’s images portray the essence of masculinity; his alluring style and chiseled features set the stage for the seduction that is about to unfold.
