Malan Breton Spring 2014

If you were living the life of a luxe Barbie doll, how would you choose to dress?  Malan Breton's Spring 2014 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week answered that question for me.  The elegant presentation at Lincoln Center was a mix of icy pink silk, electric blue, black, red and frosty white.
The ladies wore exquisitely tailored suit jackets with cigarette pants that grazed the ankle.  Dresses were young and upscale, like a prom straight out of Gossip Girl.  The gentlemen wore dapper suits with an interesting play on proportions.  Shorts could be mixed with long jackets, double breasted coats with shimmering silk pants.  They were definitely in brighter (and shinier) colors than your average American man is comfortable with.

However, Malan Breton himself is far from the average man.  He is a Renaissance gent who has built a reputation on costume work and television.  However, Wikipedia also makes note of his writing, photography, directing, musician and mentor in addition to designing his own fashion label.  With all of that, he also finds time to dedicate work to charities like amFAR and Care and Share India.

What drives a man to work at so many endeavors at once? Is it boredom?  Is it curiosity?  Maybe it is just a love of life.  I hope to find out some day.
