Spring 2013 Menswear
June 24, 2012 Milan
Canali tends to put everything it's got on the catwalk. The results can feel a little episodic, and its Spring 2013 collection was no exception. The through line was, as always, tailoring, tailoring, tailoring. The show consisted of several subsections. A dandy group favored sorbet colors and bits of punctiliousness, like matching a model's evening scarf to his pocket square to his hatband, while a retro series hit the thirties moment that's been an undercurrent of the season, with pinstriped suiting and fedoras. One section felt links-appropriate, with flat caps and more scarves, and another looked younger—think chinos is vibrant colors and side-zip high-top sneakers. A trio of evening jackets in metallic botanical prints ended things on a high, if daring, note.
