NEW FRONTIER
Milan: Tomas Maier used the word “ease” to describe the fluid layers that made up his S/S 13 collection. An earthy aura permeated things; the palette evoked natural elements like clay, stone and bark, while simple lace-up tunics and the presence of suede fringe recalled authentic prairie garb of the early 1900s. All this was tweaked with a bit of luxury in the form of filmy organzas and lustrous silks. Tailored items also had a soft presence, suits featured a faint floral print which was blurred even more by a veil of transparent fabric. Overall, a lovely interpretation of feminine-meets-masculine — a key theme of this season so far.  —Anna Jane Davis
