John Galliano a/w 2012/13 collection by Billy Gaytten takes inspiration from NY ’30 gangsters and military style. It comprise trenches, coats, furs, fur collars, all enriched with belts which are the key point of this collection.
Dolce and Gabbana
In the Dolce and Gabbana aw 2012/13 collection clothes have a history, the fashion show starts with a cape coat and goes on with single breasted and double breasted jackets, velvet, golden embroidery and frogs.
Leather trousers and fur, have become the ubiquitous staple for next season. Margiela shows them in faux leather and styled in seventies shades suits. Black and camel are the main colours of the collection but a bright of red is allowed. The trash bag used for the the duvet signs the ultimate winter coat.
Dries Van Noten
Astrakhan fur collars and revers, military coats, psychedelic forests and paradises printed on the textile of pants and jackets show Dries Van Noten willing to risk.
Tweed caps, double breast jackets and coats meet field jackets. It’s a collection for the city man who wants to feel his country side.
Yves Saint Laurent
Stefano Pilati resent a collection made of monochrome colour palette (gray and black), different fabrics with a huge presence of leather and fur collars.
Red, brown, blue and black – this is the palette that R.Tisci decided to use for this collection. Stripes and stars, leather, furs and skirts take part in his perception of the next a/w.
Kris Van Assche starts from military style. We have simple lines in military green and the eagle made camouflage melting with black and khaki colours.
Johnny Johansson mixes black leather , white socks, brown, blue and military green in this collection. He also puts cardigan over the blazers. Astrakhan coats and collars always on the first line but fabrics and materials were all faux.
Astrakhan, velvet, black, dark red, khaki, blue and brown, exotics skins, smoke on shirts. As accessory: the bag under the arm!
The main shape you can notice are the round shoulders and high waist trousers.
Fun blue collection in a sea scenery made of jellyfish printed trousers, water ripple print jumpers, slashes of neon and lobsters woven into jumper collars. For young sea dog!
With this collection Doma uses prehistorical references and ethnic references. He ntroduces the fur gilet to the modern day man and I love the contrast between the fur and light blue and red of the long sweaters.
Rick Owens plays wit the black and white color block. Importance is given to the waist with the dark trousers in contrast with the upper of the body embraced with soft or translucent fabric.
White shirts were embroidered with tartan and monotone Lacroix signature crosses as well as two toned white and tartan button downs. Kaleidoscope prints lead the experimentation in this collection. Red lacquered distressed leather was the choice for a single-breasted button down over coat with tartan lining.
