Reinventing dapper style with a modern twist, the new Martin Lamothe Fall/Winter 2012 collection was presented on the runway of Madrid Fashion Week. Directional lines, slender silhouettes and avant-garde tailoring were all used subtly, but served as key features in this refined collection of formal wear.
A black, buttonless blazer with a postmodern esthetic was one of the line's most couture pieces, while a textured, red and white jumpsuit was my favorite item in this sophisticated offering. Bold geometric patterns, color blocking and interesting textures and materials were also trademarks of this diverse, but unified lineup. And, unlike many other collections seen this year, this one doesn't shy away from using color. So if you're looking for a suit that is both modern and elegant, look no further than the Martin Lamothe Fall/Winter 2012 line.
