ToBeFrank Menswear Spring/Summer 2013

Posted: Updated:

After showing her Autumn/Winter 2012 collection as part of the Vauxhall Fashion Scout calendar during London Fashion Week, menswear designer Frank Phillips opted to unveil her Spring/Summer 2013 collection for ToBeFrank the day before the opening of the inaugural London Men's Fashion Week in June 2012 in a disused retail space in central London.

Hailing from Rotherham, Phillips studied Fashion at the University of Huddersfield and undertook work experience with Anna Sui in New York and Topman in the UK before creating ToBeFrank, a label that is intended to address the sartorial needs of the modern gentleman who favours practicality over design. Guided by this notion, for Spring/Summer 2013, ToBeFrank offers a range of essential staples for men who want a wardrobe of pieces that are easy to select when it comes to matching colours and shapes.
