While his autumn/winter collection was filled with luxe jewel-toned pieces and whimsical prints, Nicolas Ghesquière presented a more toned-down look for spring/summer 2013.
The show was a classic mix of masculine and feminine; subtly oversized suiting featured jackets left open to reveal flashes of white bra tops beneath and was worn with sleek high-heeled brogues, while more feminine looks made use of a striking monochrome palette to create delicate dresses with daringly low-cut sweetheart necklines.
Ruffles featured on hems, waists and in bell sleeves which added volume and a touch of Spanish spice that was kept modern by pairing them with square-cut cropped vest tops. Later looks paid homage to the 1960s, a decade seen frequently this season, with tweed mini kilts and matching blazers teamed with white shirts and co-ordinating cropped waistcoats.
While the finale looks played more with print, the overall collection was muted yet strong and a perfect example of the nonchalant sensuality with a splash of rock ’n’ roll attitude that the label, and its muse Kristen Stewart, wears so well.
