Here, a breakdown of Fall 2013′s runway trends, inspired by the work of René Lalique and the rich detailing of Gustav Klimt’s portraits.

The Element of Surprise

Come a little closer — all the better to see the incredible embroideries, beadwork and appliqués. And perhaps a dragonfly in someplace unexpected (wrapped around the heel of a shoe).

Meet the Beetles!

And scarabs and dragonflies. The season’s major motif takes its cue from Art Nouveau’s insect infatuation. Just wing it.

The Shape of Things

A tale of two silhouettes — whether subtle volume in soft cocooning and ladylike waist definition or A-line and trumpet skirts.

Gilty Pleasures

From Lurex knits and glazed tweeds to paillette embroidery — shine on.

Jewel Intentions

Think rich when it comes to Fall’s palette of saturated jewel tones, plums, metallics and a bit of blush.

The Knit Parade

A wardrobe staple gets the luxe treatment, with shots of metallic shine, graphic geometrics and florals.

Surface Treatment

Laser-cut cloqué, velvet jacquard, tufted chiffon, beaded tweed are in the mix.
