Givenchy Pre-Fall 2013 Lookbook

This Pre-Fall 2013 collection sticks with the tried and true Givenchy formula, on display is an assortment of shirting, bombers, argyle knits and trousers. What Givenchy has really come to be known for are the prints and this collection delivers in that department with a new Doberman print (following up on the success of the Rottweiler collections) and a HDG monogram (Hubert de Givenchy). Also notable is the numbered neoprene Pervert shirt which is giving me flashbacks to the Les Plus Dores fashion team shirts.

I’m sure that these new items will fly off shelves when they hit stores next year. In related news Givenchy head designer Riccardo Tisci was named GQ’s Designer of the Year.

The Soloist by Takahiro Miyashita SS13 – Symphony # 0007

Takahiro Miyashita presents his Spring/Summer 2013 collection for The Soloist, Symphony # 0007, with a lookbook comprised of subdued black&white film photography. The clothes themselves harken back to some of Takahiro’s earlier work with Number (N)ine.

The range reintrepts classic men’s staples such as gingham check shirts, trench coats, and parkas. The design is meant to marry functionality and design and the formal with casual. We’ll be focusing on specific items from the collection in an upcoming post.

Undercover SS13 Men’s Collection

Undercover Spring/Summer 2013 Men’s Collection

We present the latest Undercover Spring/Summer 2013 collection; a follow up to Pyscho Color which is in stores now. Jun Takahashi continues themes from the Psycho Color and Open Strings collections combining elements of streetwear, dandyism and technical wear. Since the Spring/Summer 2012 collection, Jun has continued experimenting with a varied color palette and this collection contains a bright array of oranges, greens, olives, and purples. The styling in this collection must be commended for mixing these colors effortlessly down to little details such as the buttons and socks. Some of the pieces seem like all too familiar riffs on men’s basics but there are definite standouts: the olive cape, the burgundy suit the all white looks, and the electric blue knit blazer. Look for more coverage on Third Looks as more images leak and the product begins to arrive in shops early next year.
