In the spring summer 2013 collections designers paid tribute to all elements of nature: the sky, the sea, the land and flora of all shapes and sizes.

Armani said his spring 2013 couture collection would display “an echo of different cultures. As if you’re touring the world and taking different references from different cultures and you obviously make them more for today’s world.” Armani translated this into a collection of mostly streamlined looks in high-intensity, high-shine fabrics, the exotica rendered via a moody palette shot with red, nonspecific tribal-esque patterns and bold accessories, including the ubiquitous fez hat.
The Emporio Armani team took a trip to the seaside for the Spring/Summer 2013 campaign video when photographer Michael Roberts shot models Anais Pouliot, Daga Ziober, Patricia Val Der Vliet, Marlon Texeira and Arran Sly lounging on the boardwalk and lazing in the sun. Take a look at the shoot, from behind the scenes.
