Beautiful craftsmanship should be the cornerstone upon which every stylish man builds his wardrobe. For Spring/Summer 2012 designers celebrated important sartorial staples. Dior and Iceberg presented paired down, timeless silhouettes that can be worn for both formal and casual occasions whilst Burberry and Lanvin gave us a variety of fabulous coats that make an (under)statement all of their own. Vivienne Westwood and Maison Martin Margiela added their own unique and directional twists whilst staying strong to the spirit of classic sartorial style. This season, accessories have a timeless nature which complements this return to elegance. Hand crafted pieces from Borsalino and SuperDuper embrace Italian artisan techniques whilst Alberto Fasciani and Officine Creative play with high quality leather and traditional shapes. Whether you wish to give your favorite staples an intelligent update or start investing in some serious tailoring, these key elements should be the basis on which you construct your wardrobe.
