Jonathan Saunders showed his collection S/S 13 'as a showcase
Today concludes the first edition of the ' London collections: Men', with the proposals for the upcoming spring-summer 2013, the gateway of the British capital, formerly known as London Fashion Week.
And so far this time, certainly today was the day more interesting, but meanwhile and as yet remain a few shows, we take stock of theday Saturday.
In this second part of the special of the London Gateway, we are left with the designs of four collections. E.Tautz , James Long , Rake and Jonathan Saunders . We told you why they are our elected...
E.Tautz: Relaxed tailoring with touches of neon
Patrick Grant - responsible for design of E.E.tautz - He is inspired by the British Explorer Wilfred Thesiger, and colors and wildlife of Ethiopia. A collection of cuts clean and purified, the prevailing basic garments.
For sporstwear, he opts for simple sets in which Bermuda and sweaters knitted more raincoats (as irreplaceable outer garments) are the musts essential in the House. While committed to the dress suits straight cut anthracite in gray tones almost black, with crossed American or simple three-button (the most classic of all).
Splashes of color in neon shades such as turquoise or yellow; or pastels as the blue or pink, cheer outfits (as a general rule) of dark base, usually in black. Special mention deserves the coat layer of cashmere in bubblegum pink, simply stunning.
Rake: In sartorial but with humor
Clive Darby for Rake has filed a formal collection tailoring pieces, but casual in terms of styling and playful general air of carefree silhouettes. A style 'dress' but carefree and nothing hard, but with a great sense of humor, which include pieces such as the American double flap, or the cute dress- short in salmon.
James Long: The effect skirt-pants
James Long is one of the favorites among the Londoners more 'modern' , and his style is bold, often very dark, but especially unconventional rage among young (and not so young) of the English capital.
For the upcoming summer season is quite clear, his most notable is the knee Bermuda by wide cutting and exaggerated pleated tweezers mode, creating a skirt’s effect. This piece looks in different versions in all and each and one of the looks of the show, but yes, made in various materials, the most spectacular in the skin.
For top opts to shirts (many short-sleeved), sweaters and jackets, all worked with prints and applications that create eye-catching graphic effects panels. A collection very neutral in terms of colors - black and white, more grayish scale, with the odd touch of gold - but rich in detail.
Jonathan Saunders: Aire sixties
The Scottish JonathanSaunders has preferred this year to show his collection as an exhibition rather than catwalk, a showcase where models posed in front of a decorated coated with images of campaign.
Tailoring of perfect cut and adjusted to not ultra slim silhouettes, classical essence but very current. They require attention the printed type wallpaper with polka dots, for example, and the prints of striped. Impossible not to mention the elegant (which not discrete) shoes pointed, and sunglasses to the Lennon. Without a doubt the most pop and marked the London air sixties collection.
