New York Fashion Week: Men’s Review by Jesse Bluma

New York Fashion Week Men’s Review

New York Fashion Week originated with Eleanor Lambert, a publicist during the 1920s and 1930s.  This is the first year since the 1990s there has been a standalone showcase for men’s wear.  During the 1990s men’s was combined within the week of women’s shows.  The Council of Fashion Designers of America brought back the men’s week this year showcasing brands such as Todd Snyder, Thom Browne, Public School, Robert Geller, Michael Kors, Carlos Garciavelez, and Calvin Klein.  Although, this caused more travel and expense for industry insiders, buyers, and press.  The week was presented by Amazon, Cadillac, and East Dane, and others.  

Trends:  monochrome, white, army green, stripes, light-washed out colors.  While classics are the way to go in wardrobe, incorporating some of the trends from designers will give you some variety.  Monochrome was well established within the fashion lines, including executions of black and white and varying tones of a single color.  White was another common color presented on the runways, especially white shoes.  Army green or olive green military inspired jackets was another prevailing item.  Stripes.  A lot of stripes.  In traditional and creative designs.  These may be suitable for a fashion show, underscoring show, and may be incorporated into your wardrobe in a well thought out manner.  Light-washed out colors also made an appearance in shirts and shorts.

I curated the looks above to provide an overview of New York Fashion Week:  Men’s.  The models in these looks represent some of the trends and best of the lines.  You may see the same or similar looks in stores within the next year.  

Todd Synder’s collection stood out as one of the most well focused.  The clothing from shirts, jackets, pants, and shoes were fully sustained and consistent in design work and quality.  His show was clear and effective in its vision, providing a strong beginning and finale.  Todd Snyder began his career working in a haberdashery in De Moines, Iowa.  After years of apprenticeship and work he designed for Ralph Lauren, the Gap, and J. Crew.  He then went on to launch his own brand and his collections can be found at Bergdorf Goodman, Ron Herman, and Neiman Marcus.
