A protégé of Jean Paul Gaultier (and lead designer for the Gaultier diffusion line from 2009-2011) designer Atsushi Nakashima has the keen eye for design, and sharp attention to detail required to become a world wide fashion force.  For his Spring 2013 collection, the designer really showed off  these talents with an artfully executed collection of pieces that struck the perfect balance between traditional design and an ultra modern point of view.

Here are a few of our favorite looks from the collection.
