Alexandre Plokhov has just taken Summer Black to a whole new level for his Spring / Summer 2013 menswear collection. With a palette of mostly black with a splash of white, the looks take on a dark and minimalistic approach to the season. Tailored pieces such as trench coats are layered over soft and deconstructed pieces like a mesh tunic with a plunging neckline. Love the layered proportion play in the outfits.... exactly what I would do and have done in my own designs.
It really is a collection after my own heart... perhaps it's time to put the quirky prep look I've been styling on hold and get back to this.... what do you think?
Many looks below:
