LV teaches math/geometry.


Louis Vuitton gives us a look at their men’s Pre-Collection Spring/Summer 2013 line. LV made a few re-adjustments compared to other drops with many of the pieces in this collection having a much brighter tone. The vibrant colors like the orange piece, pictured above really stand out and Louis Vuitton disappoints none as far as designing their cut and sew wear.

Raf Simmons ss 2013 presents retro ideas with ultra-linear cuts for menswear.


With his first collection for Dior approaching, this will not be the last Raf-themed post, and nor will that make me the only person. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in following his every move, when you’re this good fanaticism on this scale is to be expected.
