Autumn-Winter 2012/13 - Formichetti produced a modern take on the suit and showed many variations of the look. Focusing on the uniform of a marine, he modified and innovated a new take on the classic ensemble. “A modern-day man can wear it to the office, then into the street,” Formichetti said. A very confident man that would have to be though with these garments more like that of what a superhero (or supervillain) would wear, showing caped jackets in full and over one sleeve only, thick jacquard with embossed floral or feather motifs in red and pink and waxed cotton trench coats. Fitted sleeveless shirts that are long in front, more like a dress than a top and skinny grey jodhpur like trousers gave an armor like feel, enhanced by the rounded shoulders and cropped style of some of the jackets, rubber and plastic textures. This is not the suit of a businessman or dandy, this is the suit of an indestructible man.
