Sandro Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection
Displayed in a visually striking format, Sandro release their AW13 lookbook. Demonstrating the continued influence of the monochrome trend, the French label have brought in fresh-faced British model Thomas Penfound to display their new collection.
Whilst remaining almost entirely within black and white confines, pops of oxblood and royal blue make a welcome appearance in the form of knitwear. With a timeless palette at the root of the designs, altered fits and experimental cuts give the range a much needed modern edge.
Keeping the silhouette slim and refined, shirt lengths are extended and trousers shortened to allow for creative layering and added visual depth. Maintaining that classic French chic from one look to the next results in a polished collection with unexpected versatility. Simply designed knitwear and trousers allow for colourful accessories and statement outerwear to deliver a personal touch.
Bold contrasts run throughout the offering and are strengthened by the mix of fabrics. Leather jackets, waxed cotton and metallics each offer texture to the looks whilst extending the collection’s accessibility.
Stand out pieces from the range include the crisp white shirt, the linear printed shirt and the knitwear. However, the sharp cut blazers deliver a contemporary, fashion forward take on a wardrobe staple, which could find a home in many a gentleman’s wardrobe.
Overall, a focus on clean and classic means this French giant has delivered yet another highly desirable collection of versatile wardrobe essentials.
