The return of Mercedes Benz Start-Up semi-finalist Christopher Bates was no shock to the fashion community. His tongue in cheek line for the competition in 2012 was well received by the audience and press.
As each model took to the studio floor for the F/W 2013 presentation, Bates narrated the details of each piece. A model decked in suspenders and a tailored white shirt was paired with grey thin pin patterned pants was a notable look during the show. Small details in the looks like classy silver ankle zippers, a blood orange collar on a blue dress shirt and blue driving gloves set the collection apart from the usual three piece menswear looks on the runway.
