Christian Blanken Spring Summer 2013
When it comes to fashion week collections sometimes we are truly excited about an aesthetic within part of a collection. For Christian Blanken Spring Summer 2013 this is exactly what happened.
The first half of his collection showcased a ‘futurism noir’ feel. Structured and strong sharp cuts were prominent with beautiful crisp monochrome.
This was certainly an aesthetic we were instantly drawn to. The fitting of the garments was simply stunning, combined with the fine cut and you had a luxury active feel with plenty of noir thrown in for good measure.
An absolute favourite of ours was of course the somewhat ‘armoured’ pvc white jacket, as if a barrier against the elements. Although of course, being Stylenoir, we would have preferred it in black.
