Alan Paine Spring/Summer ’13

Giving traditional clothing a new and modern feel can be a tricky business. However, British Heritage brand Alan Paine have accomplished just that with their use of nostalgic imagery and contemporary fabrics.

For Spring/Summer ’13, the label has pushed its personal boundaries and given their most cherished styles a sprinkle of colour.

Most impressive though, is the introduction of innovative fabrics, blending Supima Cotton and Clima fibres to create a texture that manages to withold heat and yet still allow the wearer to remain cool in hot weather.
