The Dino Alves Spring/Summer 2013 collection features a mix of sensationally striped garments that marry form with function. Inspired by constricted and enclosed spaces, the Portuguese menswear designer has created a versatile and wearable collection made of stunning separates.
Taking inspiration from furniture forms, the designer decided to highlight clean lines and easy silhouettes in this collection, saving his patterns as decorative details that are subtly bold instead of overtly ornate.
From corrugated and crimped textiles to other wrinkled textile effects, the experimental Dino Alves Spring/Summer 2013 collection features an innovative use of textures, deconstructed shapes and unexpected stripe variations. Both colorful and youthful, this runway show is all about the effortless elegance needed in every spring/summer collection.
