Always seeking innovation across its successive collections, Valentino chose British tailoring as its inspiration for its 2013 fall/winter collection. Grounding the collection in classic nobility and luxury with its use of leather, silk wool and boldly-dyed leathers, we see some departures from the upright styling with more daring items like the Prince of Wales cape. The tonal navy blue suit and obligatory urban camo jacket aside, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli explore the often overlooked midsection of menswear with some of the jackets and as one might guess, they would choose to do so carefully, using hard lines and contrasting materials to accentuate without softening.
