"The Return"

A Film by Karl Lagerfeld

Coco Chanel despised denim, Karl on the other hand made them chic once again.

Each December, Karl Lagerfeld chooses a city associated with the house for his special “Métiers d’Art” show and Dallas has more significance than the rest.  When Coco Chanel showed her 1954 (comeback) collection the American Press gave rave reviews, and Dallas department store Neiman Marcus was so supportive that she visited them in 1957 to receive an award. The Métiers d’Art show produced every year shows the craftsmanship of it’s ateliers, and unlike the other designer’s pre-fall collections, Karl artfully balances this show somewhere in between haute couture and ready-to-wear.

Menswear Summer 2013 ESSENTIALS

Summer 2013 is going to be the season of Prints, Neon Colors, and Lightweight vibrantly colored apparel. Instead of the dull/dry sandal this year, add a little print to it and STRAP it up. Another footwear choice of the season will be the monkstrap loafer. Tassels are hip, but lets face it, a double monkstrap is hipper. The top houses showcased their collections by offering a wide variety of intricate prints, definitive cuts, and unconventional pairings. Short sleeve (printed) button-ups reign supreme in lightweight materials such as linen, and pairing them up with cohesively printed shorts will most certainly be a winning combination. Finally if you’re dressing it up on any given occasion a lightweight yet vibrantly colored chino is the way to go, throw on a statement (BLUE) blazer and you’ll be the sartorial king this summer!

  • Minimalistic “Gladiator” (Flat) Sandals
  • Monkstrap Loafers (Brown)
  • Short Sleeve Printed Button-Up
  • SHORT Shorts (Printed)
  • Lightweight LITE Color Chino
  • Statement Blazer (Blue)
