Spring/Summer 2013 Menswear (Paris Fashion Week) Top Choice: Balmain
After posting my top choices from Milan Men’s Fashion Week, let’s now proceed to Paris. For this post I was able to to choose only one as my top choice. Not because others are not good (like Lanvin, love it too.) but I wasnt able to cover the fashion week much. But still I believe Balmain Homme SS2013 deserved to be my top choice! It is perfection! Love everything in it! What more can I say!
Here you go! The full collection gallery of Balmain Homme Spring/Summer 2013!

Dr. Martens X Liberty
This collaboration brings together two beloved British institutions. Both brands stand for quality and craft but at the heart of this collaboration is an engaging discord. Liberty London brings to mind nature, beauty and a refined intricacy, at odds with the tough and rebellious ethos of Dr. Martens.
However, this partnership with Dr. Martens is entirely natural - hence the Wild Nature theme that will run through the collaboration. Youth culture first started hand-painting floral patterns on their boots in the early 1980’s, before the idea even became an official DM’s style.
The blending of these two brand’s styles can be seen on the traditional 8-hole and 3-hole Dr. Martens boots and shoes as well as the recently introduced Kensington and desert boot styles, offering a lightweight option for the warmer months.
The collection will be exclusively available in an area curated by Dr. Martens at Liberty of London’s iconic Regent Street store from 1st May 2012. From June 1st, it will also be available here on drmartens.com and from Dr. Martens own retail stores. (via http://www.dmusastore.com/t-liberty.aspx)

ATHLETENIQUE by Rajo Laurel
One of Philippines’ top designer (and one of my top fave too!), Rajo Laurel, unveils his new collection that everyone will certainly love and just perfect for the Spring/ Summer seaon. He named it "ATHLETENIQUE"!
The whole collection is inspired by Rajo’s new philosophy which is “fitness is fashion”! He always tweet this everytime he goes for a workout to motivate not only himself but as well as those who follows him. Its name originated….
"The name of the collection is a combination of the words "athletic" and "ethnic," a fusion of the abstract aspects of ethnic prints and the spirit of sportswear." - Rajo Laurel via StyleBible PH
The whole collection’s main trend is sportswear which is one of the emerging trends this season. The collection offers jersey, leather suede, mesh, and prints.
Athletenique is just one of the chicest collection I ever saw! You just have nothing to do but to love them!
