It’s that time again. You know, the time when we all gather together to gawk at all the latest fashions to hit the runway. Just as new items hit the stores for spring, our minds are already on the fall. Crazy, isn’t it? Oh, well. Such is the world of fashion. Let’s jump right in to the men’s fashions New York Fashion Week.
On day 1 the fall collection from Joseph Abboud graced the stage. The show had an emphasis on 3-piece suits with pants that were fitted in the thigh and tailored at the opening of the leg. There was a great selection of outerwear as well as a rule-breaking collection of whites sprinkled throughout the looks. Don’t worry, we won’t say anything. WWD has the full scoop on this fashion show.
Day 2 treated us to a showing of Tommy Hilfiger’s men’s line for the upcoming fall/winter season. The scenery definitely had the well-branded vibe of prep school, but was juxtaposed by the rather military leaning garb that walked the runway. There were unique touches to every piece (such as a few asymmetrical zippers, extra fabric hanging off, and tuxedo-esque stripes on the side) that kept our attention until the last look. One of our favorites was the green jacket shown midway through the show. Yeah, it was bad-ass.
We also saw designs from General Idea walk the stage. This was an urban-chic collection with a variety of forms and colors. There was definitely something there for any guy in the market for a good look for the weekend. Cvan Sieczkowski of ibtimes.com said the collection “…was inspired by winter athletic wear turned into street wear suave.” Check out the article and video of the show here.
Finally, on Day 3, we saw some men’s designs along with the women’s in the Lacoste show. Needless to say, the women’s designs were much more interesting than the dark, monotone styles for men. However, there were some garments that we’d be happy to make space for in our closets.
So, now that the first half is over, we stand ready to receive the remainder of New York Fashion Week. Will there be any surprises? Always in fashion.
