For SIX LEE, Spring/Summer 2013 was about traditional tailoring with a futuristic twist. Inspired by the paintings of plants and exotic animals by Argentinian artist Juan Gatti, along with the first drawings of the human body, the designer’s characteristically elegant silhouettes in rich materials returned in muted shades of pale blue, green, pink and grey. The fine clothing of the English aristocracy, meanwhile, along with the costumes of Ancient Egyptians and Greeks, and the uniforms of British schoolboys, served as reference points for the collection’s emphasis on sharpness, layering and transparency. Also of note were the light summer coats in thin wool and cotton - garments that played on this season’s juxtaposition of classic references and airy, forward-thinking designs.
