Levi’s Made & Crafted AW13 Lookbook
Beyond Fabric x Purificacion Garcia #1
Following my previous introduction to its SS13 collection, I got a chance to style some looks for Purificacion Garcia using my favourite pieces for the season.
Starting with what might just be my first choice among all the garments in the collection, and one of the season’s essentials, this suede bomber jacket instantly earned its way to the top spots of my wishlist. The beautiful taupe shade with chambray lining and orange/burgundy highlights on the pockets and zippers, set the mood for the whole look. A contrasting pale blue crewneck sweater underneath, dark denim with contrast orange stitching and supple suede boots pick up the chromatic and texture themes. The stripped knit tie adds a dash of color and pattern to the mix..

Meltin’ Pot AW13 Preview, Firenze
Although during Pitti all the attentions are mainly focused on the Fortezza itself, the truth is Firenze becomes stage for numerous parties, cocktails, showrooms and previews. After the fair closes its doors, there’s still a lot of activity going on scattered throughout the city center that’s worth taking a closer look: that was just the case with the Meltin’ Pot showroom…
Set in a unique “Wild Wild West meets underground punk gothic” scenario, Meltin’ Pot presented its AW13 collection resorting to a healthy dose of revivalism, through creative director Leopoldo Durante’s re-editions of some of the most renowned models. Inspired by over 19 years of historical archives, the result is a mind blowing array of options focused on details, fit and versatility - fully reversible two colorway versions, pipe stitching, special washes and finishings, unique fabrics, the works. See the wooly pants on the bottom pic? They’re actually made from heavily brushed denim giving it that soft texture and feel: brilliant…
To top it off (pun intended), beautiful earthy toned knits with plays on texture and a selection of jackets ranging from fitted wool peacoats to lightweight waterproof technical parkas.
