Martin Grant Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2013 Paris

“I like this collection so much, I’ve changed my name to Martin Grant,” one editor exclaimed at the conclusion of the spring/summer 2013 collection. He echoed the sentiment of many guests who exited the Beaux Arts after an exquisite series of silhouettes, that evoked the days when women were ladies and ready-to-wear was yet to be glimmer in a commercial mind.

Even seen in a flash as the models walked past, small details charmed- a delicate row of buttons on a cuff finished a puff sleeve, a short peeking under a micro-skirt was modest but also accentuated the play on proportions going on throughout the collection. Truncated full volumes created a conversation, accentuating a sense of poise. Sheer skirts hinted to the glamorous palazzo pants of the late 60s.

Particularly noteworthy was a V-neck halter dress in a geometric red, white, and black print with a shortened 1950s full skirt; a high neck halter maxi dress that flowed to the ground in a color-blocked mat silk fracas of raspberry, coral, black and white; a perfectly elegant black wrap shirtdress. Hats and Christian Louboutin strappy sandals completed a sharp, graphic look.

Martin Grant manages to conjure not only a vision of beautiful clothes, but does so with a sincerity and integrity that embodies what fashion should stand for.
