I don’t know about you but I need fashion to keep thin. Otherwise I’ll eat everything in this house.
Billy Reid‘s collection is a well curated array of cozy manly lodge/cabin winter attire. Plush furs, chunky patterns and well tailored pants…oh and velvet!
J. Crew is a one of few mass retailers that doesn’t duplicate high-end collections but constantly refreshing classic American men’s attire. This collection is clean, exact with strong versatility. Always preppy always, always dapper and always Americana. A utilitarian collection inspired by the 1940’s workers scene of New York.
Custo Barcelona is a flamboyant collection that never seems to have a clear direction yet we love everything that comes down the runway. I think the originality and his genius ability to mix prints, color and fabrics is what makes Custo Barcelona shows/collections awesome. From the half zebra camel coat to the half tone suits these are just exciting luxe garments. Not for the fashion enthusiasts addicted to black. Not to mention the tailoring is incredible and precise that it plays well with the textiles.
Kenneth Cole Collection is the result of taking street/gangster chic from the 20’s, 90’s and today. A very Gangs of New York and dope boy fresh meet city slicker. A sleek dark collection that is dapper and relate-able. Sometimes a collection like this can one be don by one type of man but the creation and styling of these garments are sure to evoke many a style to pull from this show.
Mark McNairy always perfectly blend hipster, hip hop and dandy in his collection. This is a really fun and smart collection that has everything to stand out during the dreary months of fall/winter: prints, color and weather appropriate textiles. This collection isn’t as verbose as his previous collection however, the smokey mysterious undertones manage to say a lot. Never passing up a moment to use camo print the fur coat is the bee’s knees. Side-note: Mark McNariy and rapper Cam’ron are to collaboration on a cape line soon, hence Cam’rom finale walk.
Ovadia & Sons had it’s first runways and this just happens to be my first time viewing their collection. A punk sportswear collection infused with relaxed suits and separates. I enjoy every single look. This collection has a cool feel to it that is young but professional, rough but stylish.
Opening Ceremony collection is the ideal fashion collection for any BMXer, Skier or Motocrosser. I love how Carol Lim & Humberto Leon Kenzo influences are all over this making the two collections look more like siblings than overtime production of two lines. The color blocking is simply great, the paneling and geometric shapes are slimming and the cuts and monotone prints are righteous!
