Collection of the Moment: Valentino Spring 2013 Menswear

The freshest and sober collection I have seen so far in menswear. Clean, athletic, realistic, easy.

I see that Phoebe Philo's influence seeped into menswear--I know she bases most of her inspiration from menswear, so I guess it comes to a full circle at this point--as seen in the striped trousers that are pressed to perfection, the crisp white shirts with drop shoulders, and the colorblocking on jackets.

As for the accessories, all are understated and stripped back to sleek shapes, sizes and details. No ostentation of any sort; just beautiful, simple clothes for the understated man with a generous bank account.
