Perfectly fitting the British Summer, James Long showed a SS13 collection that featured chunky sweaters. Shorts to the knee in every look created an easy breezy silhouette which served to relax and complement tailored shirts and jackets. Many of the shorts were executed with pleated panels creating both modern and masculine tailoring. Linear prints and patterns ran throughout, sometimes in what appeared to be random squiggles, sometimes in strategic checks and at others in perfectly pattered squares, all appearing on hand-knit sweaters, tailored shirts and fitted bomber jackets. Long achieved a remarkably slick Spring/Summer collection that achieved great impact in its simplicity and perfect execution.
