The Gary Graham Spring 2013 Collection is a show of literary-inspired wear for the warm season.

The inspiration behind this collection came from the novel 'Our Lady of the Flowers' by Jean Genet. The clothing embodies a different type of Parian appeal that goes beyond tired beret-centered cliches. Instead, Gary Graham chooses to evoke the emotion that is reflected from the novel's bohemian setting, a cemetery in the Montmarte district.

The garments embody the moody feel from which he drew his inspiration. In a muted palette, Gary Grant layers fabrics and textures to create fiercely fragile spring attire. With inspiration that is so decidedly cerebral, it's exciting to see this take on spring 2013 that perfectly marries high-brow references with highly stylized ready-to-wear garments and looks.
