Metallic Gingham Menswear to Heavyweight Champ Couture

 - Aug 17, 2012
These Spring/Summer 2013 Menswear Styles display the wide spectrum of the season's offerings.

The menswear runways have a decidedly optimistic mood with the highly imaginative exits that came down the runways in Paris, Milan, New York and even on the streets of Pitti Immagine Uomo. With the varied garments, the SS13 shows saw minimalism and functionality contrasted by otherworldly and eclectic styles.

A standout collection was definitely the always sublime Thom Browne presentation in Paris. Being described as "preppy on acid," by due to its kaleidoscopic prints, the garments boasted an air of decidedly non-human allure. A polar opposite to Thom Browne SS 13 was the ‘LADS’ Collection FROM BRITTEN P/L, which played with clean-cut textures and boyish references in its tailoring. With such a vast array of contrasting fashion stories, it will be interesting to see how men incorporate these imagined styles into their Spring wardrobe.
