Vivienne Westwood and Creative Director Andreas Kronthaler envisioned a wondrous summer picnic while designing the latest Men’s Spring Summer 2013 collection. The inspiration came from Manet’s painting “Le déjeuner sur l’herbe” and was a send up of Westwood’s tongue and cheek humor featuring poet smocks, cardigans, school boy shorts, suspenders, and the iconic Union Jack on tops, loafers and even underwear with models donning floral head wreaths as an accent piece to strike the right note.

The collection began with a romantic white poet’s smock paired with slate gray cotton trousers which featured a tongue slit at the cropped bottom of each pant leg, and French Toile de Joie loafers. There were two and three piece suits made of silk, houndstooth, broadcloth, and a checkered country plaid perfect for a romantic afternoon outing in the country. The suits were worn with paper-bag high waisted trousers in checkered and gingham prints topped off by suspenders and gold insect jewelry pinned to the lapels giving off the essence of a handsome country gentleman.

The show’s ambiance drifted to a more playful mood as models donned casual pull-on pants, straw hats and bulbous bug brooches and necklaces. A cardigan worn over an bright melon shirt with brown trousers and lace up oxford shoes, appeared ideal for a game of golf. Another model sported a bi-color black and gold color-blocked English cardigan over striped shorts.

“We recycled the grass stain, when you sit on the grass or have sex on the grass or whatever,” said Westwood. It’s not a real picnic outing if you don’t lay in the grass and drink a little wine. A model wearing a white wine stained shirt and casual shorts displaying a game of Tic-Tac-Toe exemplified her sentiments exactly. This was followed by a grass stained white Safari jacket and khaki trousers which were right on trend.

Bottega Veneta Spring / Summer 2013 Men’s Ready-To-Wear Collection by Tomas Maier.

Bottega Veneta’s designer Tomas Maier embarked on a journey back to the 1970s era of the Beach Boys and The Doors with one goal in mind, to design a wardrobe that makes getting dressed effortless. The collection inspired by the ease and informality of the pull-over featured sailor sweaters, fisherman’s knit, ethnic tunics, and any garment that men can pull over their heads, along with the new athletic pull-on pant.

The 70s California Dreaming vibe included slouchy sweaters, suede separates and slim fit pants which were paired with T-shirts and cotton tunics. Buttons were replaced by lacing on shirts, sweaters and pullovers all rendered in ultra-light open weave knits and fabrics that are naturally perfect for the beach. He used what he called “women’s fabrics” silky, sensuous chiffons, organzas, summer leather and crepes to create ultra-light layers that contributed to the nonchalant attitude of getting dressed.

A buttery suede fringed tunic was paired with matching suede pants. Another model sported a Rastafarian style pull-over with both vertical and horizontal stripes in teal, black, brown and gray reminiscent of the original seventies hippie sweater paired with teal silk pull-on pants and comfy suede boots.

Maier also sent out beautifully tailored suits, single breasted, double breasted, slim fitting, some came adorned with printed florals. A single breasted two-button suit with a veiled organza layer over a floral print was paired with a shirt of the same floral for an inside out effect. Followed by a series of lightweight wool, safari suits printed with a deliberate feminine floral on the front that appeared faded or evoked the look of a stain. The slim, natural silhouette was enhanced by soft tailoring to keep the look casual and breezy with a retro sensibility.

Etro Spring / Summer 2013 Men’s Runway Ready-To-Wear Collection by Kean Etro.

Etro, a Milanese fashion house known for its beautiful colors and patterns has created a collection that is unique among menswear offering a sensuous, richly patterned Indian Raj inspired collection designed to thrill the senses. As Kean Etro explained, the foundation of the collection stems from “complex explorable tri-dimensional structures.” His models sported silky dressing gowns over baggy trousers that gathered around the ankles, and long, fluttering tunics inspired by the traditional salwar kameez, a traditional style of dress worn by both men and women in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India.

Using natural light-weight fabrics, Kean sent out luscious patterned silks and linens in royal shades of blues and purples enhanced by haunting rhythmic music. A periwinkle blue linen blazer atop a purple and blue paisley silk tunic is worn over dark silk flowing pants, with the tunic falling just below the knee creating a beautiful contrast between the paisley and the electrifying complimentary hues.

As the show progressed invariably bolder and more brilliant color ways made their way down the runway to the sacred chanting sounds of Eskimo shaman, Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq, spiritual leader of IceWisdom who created a sound meditation for climate change. Following the deep blues and rich purples, the collection progressed to warm hues of fiery orange and red silk paisely patterned suits presented among striped silk tunics and jackets accessorized with enchanting jewel toned scarves. More structured silhouettes included a linen red or white bandleader jacket with embroidered frogging detail across the front and back. Nuetral gray, green and earthy browns were next in the rainbow filled spectrum. An intricate paisley print trickled down a dark green tunic worn over olive green silk pants and was also seen on an elegant dark green tailored suit. Next, a bright persimmon unconstructed silk suit with a purple and orange patterned tunic was followed by a brilliant rosy magenta suit styled with a monochromatic lavender shirt and a long flowing paisley scarf.

The collection came to a close with the looks shifting to simple monochromatic black or white. Small embellishments of sequins and gold lamé conveyed the cultural richness of the Indian and Kashmiri culture which originated Etro’s beloved paisley print.
