The theme of the collection was based on pre-Socratic Greek philosopher Heraclitus’ two word philosophy "panta rei" - literally everything flows, meaning that everything is constantly changing. True to its theme, the collection was indeed a cosmic flow, a journey to far lands for inspiration. The collection with an undercurrent of Himalayan (read Mongolian), Japanese and North European inspiration was meant for someone who is a world citizen with a bohemian edge.

Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 was all about connecting to the Sicilian roots and celebrating religion and faith. Once more for this season, the designer duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana chose ordinary Sicilians as their models. The designers said that the collection was dedicated to devotion. The collection with images of repeated haloed Madonnas, crucifixion of Jesus and scarves edged in gold fringe had a strong religious tone to it and was indeed a sartorial devotion to faith, belief and roots.
After metallic silk bomber, it is the turn of spicy and playful animal prints for Burberry men. Chief creative director, Christopher Bailey called the collection “I ♥ Classics”, aptly titled as he kept the house’s heritage alive in the form of trench, cashmere overcoat and signature check but at the same time being more technology oriented while developing fabrics and infusing youthful, modern and bold graphic animal prints and playful heart motifs in a classic colour palette of navy, camel, bone, olive green, purple, black, burgundy and Windsor red.
