THE GENTLEMANLY ARTS
London: Rake’s inherent sophistication was on full display for F/W 13, as designer Clive Darby brought forth a collection inspired by the work of artist Gunter Sachs. But this wardrobe was more art collector than artist, full of gentlemanly corduroy pieces in light neutral tones and rich velvet, suede and fur outerwear. Every ensemble carried a refined formality, but Darby did not produce any matched suits, preferring mismatched monochrome tuxedos or bright silk twill bottoms beneath belted smoking jackets.—Nina Stotler
