In a time where the fashion world is rapidly evolving, it was no surprise what New York Fashion Week displayed last week. A unique and one of a kind event that took men’s fashion into a new realm. Fashion is no longer a forecourt for women only, in fact, New York Fashion Week: Men’s proved a league of its own.
Various styles, runway shows and A-list designers took stage over a 4 day display of male dominance.
The shows offered distinct styles and different trending looks from recognisable designers like Polo Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein to less mainstream designers such as Perry Ellis.
With that said, there were a few designs that drew more attention than others. Some of which I could picture myself wearing and what a thought that was. Nick Graham, Thom Browne and Tim Coppens were my personal stand outs. The details within each piece were intricate and designed for a particular type of gentlemen in mind.
Thom Browne’s structured suits were reinvented for the modern day man, tailored and fitted with an edge. Something a little more outside standard protocol. Fifty Shades of Grey was a different translation amongst the models of this runway show.
Winter coat prints featured amongst Tim Coppens, turning what can otherwise be a ‘plain’ look into an up street vibe.
It’s good to see men’s fashion paving way, resulting in their own right to celebrate new seasons and new crazes.
