Ah, the absolute nadir of winter. A time wherein dreams of iced coffee and Vitamin D could NOT be any more tantalizing. The fashion world knows our strife, and knows we're try'na escape!

+ Karen Walker's newest capsule collection for Anthropologie is an ode to anchors, bowlines, and all things nautical. One of our favorite Made In Kind collabs, Walker says this collection is "inspired by Victorian seaside holidays," and isn't the sound of it just magnificent?

+ Remember how Mary Katrantzou's Spring '13 line was all about travel motifs, passport stamps and continent-hopping? Now her iconic prints come in the form of jeans, shorts and jackets c/o her latest collab with Current/Elliot.

+ Kendall Conrad's Spring '13 accessories line channels the free spirit of the sea with simple, functional elegance. The Santa Barbara designer nails it with muted colors of faded wood and sea foam, creating pieces that are perfect for lovers of the sun, sand, and staples.

+ Rebecca Minkoff takes cues from the best coast as she teases her Spring ’13 campaign, which stars Hilary Rhoda and an unjustly stunning California backdrop.

+ Saturdays Surf NYC team up with Colette to create a unisex (! Saturdays is usually reserved for dudes) and delightfully polka-dotted beach line that basically demands we pick up and go. PEAYCE.

Even if that delightfully unseasonal weather has you all "spring forward," this week we're uncovering some gems from yesteryear.

+Naomi Campbell reminds us that actual supermodels, not celebrities, used to dominate the covers of fashion mags (think: House of Style era). It's apparently time to restore some order.

+From Grace Farady to Bonnie Parker, these are the most glamorous (fictional) gangster girlfriends that pillage can buy!

+Did you know that until the early 18th century, high heels were a DUDE's fashion? Lolz.

+With two clothing lines to her name, Lauren Conrad tells us how she really feels about those denim capris from her Laguna Beach days.

+Once upon a time, Coco Chanel met the diamond and, casually, redefined the world's most precious gem. What have YOU done today?

Doth our eyes deceive? This week, a few style stars bear striking similarities to things, well, not themselves. Intentional or not, we're calling them out!

+Ke$ha attended an inaugural charity event in a patriotic Paul & Joe pantsuit, which just happened to be spangled with blue sequin stars, include a bedazzled headpiece and expressly bring to mind Wonder Woman.
{via Just Jared}

+Willow Smith ran some errands in a draping black leather ensemble and is apparently Neo's protégé. Who knows, whipping one's hair back and forth COULD be the new Matrix move?!
{via Oh No They Didn't!}

+Catherine Zeta Jones stepped off a plane looking like a straight up Pilgrim. Buckle hat and all.
{via Coco Perez}

+ Katy Perry channeled a seksi (but not TOO seksi!) Uncle Sam in a Johnny Wujek creation that she wore for the Kids' Inaugural Concert in Washington, DC.
{Us Weekly}

+Kerry Washington also hit up the nation's capital, but appeared curiously international in a red tartan dress. Fer real though, only she could resemble a Walker’s Shortbread box and still look flawless.
{The Cut}

+ And Adam Levine, you deserve a moment of pondering because...we don’t even know. You're a Hershey Kiss alien who got attacked by paint balls and only lives once?

Even though we're keenly aware that the collision of fashion and technology is nothing new (think: Nike Fuel Bands, the Google Glass, and, notably, Snooki’s “fashion you can hear”), this week we swept the tech-minded corners of the interwebs and found some of the latest, greatest, and totally wackadoodle projects in high-tech fashion!

+Behold Shapeways, the 3D printing marketplace that facilitates manufacturing of YOUR great ideas by simply uploading a design file. Check out the mind-blowing video in the link, and get to steppin' on your own best-friend necklaces, sunglasses, Gothic candelabra, whatever!
{via The Creators Project}

+IBM released an algorithm that predicts steampunk will be a major force in the future of fashion. I mean, Bieber's rocked it before (and we respect his stewardship), but we can't reaaaally imagine clocks, pipes, and moving gears dominating the runway.
{via Refinery 29}

+The world's first fashion hackathon O_O is coming to Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Top engineers will compete to create a digital concept (perhaps an app?!) for the industry. Can't wait to see THIS crowd brush shoulders with the fashion week regulars!
{via Decoded Fashion}

+Burberry's flagship store in London boasts some crazy tech: the world's tallest retail screen, 550 hidden speakers, screens that turn into mirrors, and a hydraulic stage (for impromptu in-store gigs, of course). Guess you can teach old brands new tricks?
{via The Guardian}

+This year's Consumer Electronics Show showcased I'm Here, a GPS tracker connected to social media platforms and small enough to fit on your clothing. Great for losing a sock, not so great for a losing a stalker.

With the impending hysteria of the Fall/Winter 2013 collections, it's high time we remember that fashion ain’t all that serious!

+Ryan Lochte inked a reality series deal with E! this week, prompting whispers on the street that his fashion line is, jeah, a real thing. It's set to consist of shoes and "glitzy" accessories. Jawesome.
{via Entertainmentwise}

+Even with unparalleled red-carpet game, Emma Stone thinks it's hilarious that Vogue named her the best-dressed gal of 2012. It's all about the LAWLS.

+Jerry Seinfeld sacrifices his trademark white sneakers for the dear Mrs., who finds them "jarring."

+Check out this tri-colored Jason Wu bag that totally looks like a Poké Ball. Chalk it up to coincidence, but for $1700 it better come with a Charizard and Mewtwo!!
{via Refinery 29}

+Model David Gandy launched “Blue Steel Appeal" this week as a part of the UK charity Red Nose Day 2013. His announcement came complete with a screening of Zoolander and plenty of pouting.

+ Clover Canyon's Spring '13 collection positively STUNS with near kaleidoscopic colors and prints that channel the alfresco beauty of the brand's California home. Each piece leaves something to unpack, but is still so wearable and we wish we had a billion $$$ to buy it all.
{via Clover Canyon}

+ It might not be a cliff in the outdoorsy sense, but you've likely heard the term "fiscal cliff" floating around for a few weeks. What does it mean for the fashion world? (Also, just what does it mean, period?)

Karlie and Joan cover Vogue

In 2012, House of Style co-hosts Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss became bonafide mainstays on the pages of the fashion’s heaviest-hitting publications. Karlie and Joan are individual powerhouses, but this year they really became a gruesome twosome. We'd like to think that House of Style solidified their BFFL status, but other iconic moments together included storming the runway at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show and landing individual covers for W Magazine's July issue. With a glowing (and growing) CV, it comes as no surprise that BOTH Karlie and Joan ranked among Vogue's top 10 featured models for 2012.

Here at MTV Style, we're not under any pretense that the fashion world is shy. But this week it seems like no one wants to hold their tongue!

To celebrate Lacoste's 80th anniversary, the pioneering polo brand created a video in which stylish contempos traipse city streets in self-tailoring, color-changing, and sleeve-growing polos.

"Image is powerful" is a statement that is as undeniable as it is ubiquitous. How we perceive and how we are perceived by others drives much of what we do. Our success, confidence, and happiness are directed by this authority that we can’t even touch. It’s a force. Knowing all this, how do we even begin to CONSIDER dealing with it? Well, believe it or not, we turn to a supermodel! Not long after sweeping the runway in America’s most-watched fashion show, Victoria’s Secret model Cameron Russell decided to trade lingerie for lectures. The beauty AND brain unpacks her career for TED’s “Be Fearless” conference with an honest and inspiring discussion about the power of image not only in her industry, but in all of our lives. We IMPLORE you to watch the whole talk. It/she is so awesome. But in the meantime, check out some of our favorite takeaways!
