Pierre Cardin Spring/Summer 2013 Collection
If those hazy warm days still seem far too distant, then the latest campaign from Pierre Cardin is sure to put a summery smile on your face. Featuring a flawless display of impeccable design and construction techniques, the images shot by photographer Nihat Odabasi effortlessly capture the wearable nature of the pieces.
Working in a varied nautical palette of red and blue hues, emphasis within this collection is placed on colourful tailored separates. As mentioned in previous FashionBeans articles, this is a trend that will be everywhere in the coming season.
The key consideration with statement pieces such as these is wearability, so look to pair bold tailoring with other classic muted pieces such as slim indigo jeans and seasonally appropriate white trousers. This particular technique is implemented to great effect within the accompanying lookbook (shown below), with bursts of print and contrasting colours also utilised in order to achieve an altogether more playful aesthetic.
Checks make an appearance within the collection and help to strengthen the timeless quality of the designs, whilst shorts and basic colourful tees aid in making the look more accessible. In terms of footwear, loafers and driving shoes are featured prominently within the shots and reinforce the overall Mediterranean influence.
With a formal yet wearable approach to summer dressing, this collection from Pierre Cardin boasts a variety of seasonally appropriate pieces and colours that will help you develop your own take on effortless chic this season.
