FALL 13 MENSWEAR TREND: On Parade

 


From art to politics and beyond, runway fashion reflects the zeitgeist and accordingly, as long as scenes of war are prevalent in the media, the military trend will be prominent. This was certainly true of the recent European men’s runway collections for Autumn/Winter 13. As GQ pointed out, amongst the more predictable logan green great coats, camo parkas and fatigue jackets, a Napoleonic style is emerging.

Military looks have been popping up on runways for several years now, but Fall 2013 really seems to be about Napoleonic military style. With high collars, slim cuts, and double-breasted brass buttons, there is a real gentleman-officer-at-Waterloo vibe happening here. Canali had the most pronounced Napoleonic look with their bright blue topcoats that seemed to come straight off the 19th century battlefield. Giorgio Armani went for a lighter and shorter version of the jacket, while Gucci and Diesel Black Gold stuck with darker colors like midnight blue. All you’ll need is a good saber and you’ll be ready for the cavalry.
