fashion: it’s all about the ‘shorts’ @ FROM BRITTEN P/L menswear SS 2013


Although it is a summer collection, one would wonder why there is not a single pair of trousers in the whole collection. That aside, FROM BRITTEN P/L‘s SS 2013 offers young, street-smart and modern looks through its fabrication and detailing. The layered shorts with the hidden button plackets (see above) is fresh and it could definitely be the dressier alternative to a pair of regular “walk shorts”.

DRIES VAN NOTEN womenswear AW 2013 | dissection 0.2: FEATHERS



Dries Van Noten‘s embellishments for his womenswear AW 2013 comes in the form of feathers. The brilliant plumage adds femininity to the masculinity of the boyfriend coats and wide-legged trousers. This also adds volume to the straight-cut dresses and a bit of excitement to the relaxed silhouette.

DRIES VAN NOTEN womenswear AW 2013 | dissection 0.1: LAYERING

Dries Van Noten AW 2013

Dries Van Noten‘s collections, as well all know, are characterised by his use of prints, colours, fabrics and the combination of the masculine and the feminine. Layering is one aspect that is also associated with the brand’s style, which is evident in his collections, season after season. For AW 2013, tiered pieces cleverly multiplied its layering effect, in the form of long tiered skirts, dresses and skirted trousers, giving the silhouette shape and structure.

selection: YOHJI YAMAMOTO menswear AW 2013


Don’t let the faux mustache and facial hair distract you, Yohji Yamamoto‘s menswear AW 2013 collection is fun yet very smart. It features men in kilts and long skirts in dark colour palette, which is something he has done before. As always, loose tailoring is evident in the collection as well as the baggy cropped trousers. It also includes oversized knitwear and aprons, which I think is great for menswear layering.

selection: DRIES VAN NOTEN menswear AW 2013


For autumn/winter 2013, Dries Van Noten menswear collection features paisley prints on dressing gowns and pyjamas, boxy tops and ribbed hem trousers, which looks effortless and comfortable. Some are worn with studded leather trousers for a grungy and youthful look. Layering and mismatching prints are on show but as always, Van Noten does it with ease (without looking over the top). It also includes tunics and wide shouldered blazers, which is quintessentially Dries Van Noten.
