Commune De Paris AW13
Sharp silhouettes with an unquestionable timeless quality are present throughout the AW13 lookbook from Commune De Paris. Shot against a dark backdrop of architectural ruins, this interesting offering delivers classic pieces with a noticeable nod to modern design features.
Featuring a muted palette of deep red, mustard and navy, this wholly accessible range will appeal to those wanting to add a touch of sartorial chic to their everyday look. With clear, defined separates at the forefront of the collection, pieces remain simple and wearable, maintaining the designer’s intended versatility.
Detailing appears predominantly in the form of contrasting hues, although impressive patterns also make the odd appearance – the brand’s twist on the current camo print trend being a particular highlight.
Being an autumn/winter collection, textures remain varied throughout, with wool (both fine and chunky) appearing alongside soft cottons and seasonally-appropriate leather accessories.
Key items within the collection include the bomber jacket and the mocha/navy contrast coat. However, the camo cardigan in camel and navy sets itself apart as a subtle statement piece. With a classic structure and modern design, this garment is ideal for the maturer dresser looking to add a playful edge to their wardrobe.
Targeted more at the everyday man than the modern fashionisto, the new Commune De Paris collection aims to kit you out not only for AW13, but for many more seasons to come.
