PARIS MEN'S AW13 - DAY ONE

16th January, 2013

VALENTINO

What a perfect way to start the Paris Men's AW13 than Valentino.

 

Piccioli and Chiuri, the two designers now at the head of Valentino's creative design, re-explored outerwear combining it with new sartorial elements.

 

Again, dual-fabrics garments were the key themes, especially in all those coats with inserted leather panels at the hem or at the waist.

 

It was also the feast of ties under sweaters (don't tell us we did not advise you already about this few months ago...) and of polished black shoes.

 

But also bow ties were taking over the catwalk towards the end of the show. 

 

Sartorialism was once again the main character of Valentino's male representation.

 

 

But there were also few bad drops in the collection...

 

We picked up two of those here below, and you will simply notice why they simply do not fit with the rest of the collection...

 

RAF SIMONS

 

Raf Simons' AW13 show was delicate and quite controversial under different point of views.

 

Maybe it was the yellow colour coming out in different shirts and trousers, the quite elongated sleeves of shirts and jumpers, or the outerwear with the open angular ties at the troath, or finally the subtle inspiration to cartoons.

 

Here below are our favourite picks.

 

 

MUGLER
