Spring 2013 Menswear Collections: Part I

Posted by Elizabeth Mollo on Fri, Jun 29, 2012 at 3:53 PM

Going through the Spring 2013 Menswear Collections, one will notice common elements throughout most of them: Prints and polka dots, shiny fabrics, and bold color, even if just little pops of it in a seemingly monochromatic look/collection. There was also an interesting thing going on around the waist in some of the collections. Many designers decided it should be a focal point, whether subtly with a cummerbund, as at Les Hommes, or WWF/gladiator style as at Versace. These collections are pretty daring, and much of it would never be seen on the streets of Portland. I do, however, think the men of Portland could take a few of these trends and incorporate them into their everyday look, even on a small scale. And no, plaid (as in flannel shirts) does not count as a print. My favorite overall collections of this first batch include Gucci, John Varvatos, and Salvatore Ferragamo.

Here are some of my favorite looks:
