GUSMEN - The Gentleman Blossom…GUSMEN

The Gentleman Blossom…

How do we get there? To the point of male’s beauty no-return…
Dear readers, this is a season opening and this Fall-Winter 2012-13 is a celebration, an ode to men.
All the symbols in the world cannot define the infinity of the masculine great presence as it is depicted in this season’s collections.

The merchant banker, the neo-dandy, the blue-blood labor guy…
Tailoring takes its way to the front, sleek & polished on the go, vintage glam guarantee and a sartorial nirvana…
The jacket & the trench, the tuxedo & the butler’s jacket, the coats & waistcoats, all these emblems that became contemporary classics.
An artistic burst, as well…

Cuts are close to the body and far away from it, in a textures play starring leather, silk, velvet, cashmere, fur and techno-vibe sensations.
Traveling all the way from radical black & white pure, through sensitive regal red, to spicy colors.

This season is all about masculine emblems and the confidence that lies within.
Nothing ever stays the same but this feels like old landmarks with eternal savor…
