A good suit is a staple for any fashionable gent. As luck would have it, the runways were overflowing with chic and trendy suit options for the Spring/Summer 2013 catering to all tastes. While Prada experimented with color-blocking in various 60s-inspired silhouettes, J. Lindbergh stuck to more classically tailored monochromatic suits with a hip, urban flair. The Alexis Mabille Spring/Summer Men’s 2013 collection was checker-chic, fusing gingham-patterned suits with sporty details and accessories like Converse sneakers and baseball caps.
Meanwhile Balenciaga took us back to the 80s with exaggerated proportions and suits with bold pops of color. For the truly risk-taking gentleman (with a nice pair of Glam gams, perhaps?), CarinWester explored a new territory with ‘pointless men’s suits consisting of knee-length double-breasted suit jackets occasionally paired with matching shorts. Whyred gave the pleasant surprise in a slew of contemporary mod suits with clean and classic shapes paired with graphic black-and-white patterns.
