London Men: Lou Dalton SS13.
Lou Dalton certainly set the bar high for her contemporaries as she was the first designer to present her S/S13 in the first ever London Collections: Men. Dalton showcased her excellent eye for a luxurious, casual tailoring with a sports edge. It was a mixture of modern varsity style jackets in silk, boxed shoulder sweaters with an american jersey style neck in metallic with panels. There was also a great deal of mesh fabric, cleverly used as panels on blazers and the wide legged basketball type shorts. Although it was not Dalton’s most innovative collection, it certainly was a mature and restrained collection that will have a great deal of support from Lou Dalton’s ever increasing list of buyers.
