GARDEN PARTYING WITH THE ROCKET MAN
London: A colorful palette, playful motifs and bedazzled accessories gave Richard James’ “Urban Fete”- themed S/S 13 collection its festive vibe. Summer fabrics — linen, cotton and “cool wool” — and lighthearted styling lessened the mostly tailored assortment’s formality. Flamboyant prints decorated airy button-fronts and swim trunks, while pastel ties and glittering loafers accessorized more traditional tailored suits. The offbeat-elegant aesthetic was mirrored by front row occupant Elton John, who sat clad in a raspberry suit, metallic lime oxfords and yellow nerd glasses. -Whitney Kessler
