For Spring/Summer 2013, Lou Dalton‘s archetype seemed to be the sort of every man who enjoys ’70s movies such as Taxi Driver, likes his silhouettes sporty and relaxed, and prefers pairing sneakers with his tailoring. Her collection of retro-inspired garments showcased a mix of classicism and refined tailoring that has become her signature, while also infusing those elements with modern, athletic touches. There were baseball-style tops, color-blocked suits paneled with technical materials and suede-accented shirts, along with shorts and trousers that veered away from too-short or too-skinny. And, as if to emphasize the wearability of the garments, black socks and athletic sneakers grounded each outfit, putting the finishing touches on a strong collection from British menswear’s newest starlet.
A selection of Lou Dalton’s collection for Spring/Summer 2013 is available now at our online store.
