The Pierre Balmain Spring Summer 2013 takes inspiration from the glamorous and suave side of old Hollywood.
The model, who is stylized to give off a James Dean feel, exudes classic sophistication. Most of the photos are captured in black and white, which gives it a further retro feel and also allows for the colored photos to really stand out. Classic menswear staples such as tailored suits and button down shirts in blacks and whites are present as are more loud prints such as the large polka dotted suit ensemble. The designer took inspiration from Jacques Demy’s 1963 film 'La Baie des Anges' as well as the French Rivera to create this fresh line of contemporary menswear.
The Pierre Balmain Spring Summer 2013 collection demonstrates that its well constructed and luxury pieces can make any man look dashing and debonair.
