BALENCIAGA MEN’S SPRING/SUMMER 2013 – PARIS FASHION WEEK
Posted on July 14, 2012
Check out the images from the Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2013 menswear showcase at Paris Fashion Week with some of my key notes on colours and influences below.
A clear influence from Japan in terms of cut, volume, form and simplicity with an emphasis again on a relaxed oversized yet tailored look for summer. The minimal colour palette consisting of grey, charcoal, black and white was uplifted with bold injections of ochre, red, purple and bright tropical motifs on black shirts. The primary focus here was on the oversized outwear, sharp minimalistic suiting and overall simple combinations which were uplifted by some beautiful embroidery work. Let us not also forget those shoes and chelsea boots complete with a flesh baring cut-out.
