Impeccably tailored garments and a mix of luxurious textures took to the stage at the Christopher Bates Fall 2013 runway presentation at World MasterCard Fashion Week. The designer's latest line of menswear proved to be classically elegant thanks to its European aesthetic. From streamlined silhouettes to Bates' modernized reinterpretations of retro fashions like suspenders and high-waisted trousers, this collection makes for a seamless transition from day to evening.
Models walked the runway in debonair ensembles that were reminiscent of those worn by 007 agent James Bond or by a character out of a bestseller by Bret Easton Ellis, the designer's favourite author. A wide range of the designer's sophisticated staples varied from prim work attire to hunter-inspired outerwear that gained praise from an audience of onlookers. Shining a light on crisp fabrics and incredibly cut collared shirts, the Christopher Bates Fall 2013 collection proved to be a bold and luxurious choice for the style setter with a keen eye for quality.
Before seeing the latest from Christopher Bates hit the World MasterCard Fashion Week runway stage, THE BRUNETTES caught up with the designer earlier that week and posed with some of his models after his show.
