One of the highlights of New York Fashion Week is the New York Men's Day. This year there were 12 emerging designers who presented their Fall/Winter 2015. It's a feast for the eyes and there is so much energy as all the editors and stylists are running from one presentation to the next in one building and across the street. Here are a few of my favorites from NYMD.
First off is Mexican designer GARCIAVELEZ
, this is my first time viewing his collection and I immediately loved it. The color palette of black, grey, and navy were right up my alley. The collection has a strong architectural influence and he juxtaposes different fabrics and textures.
Next is CADET
, their F/W 2015 collection was inspired by wartime in the 1940's. You'll find single and double breasted suit, jackets and trousers. Their collection is all about form and function.
Last but not least is LUCIO CASTRO
, the collection took cues from the made-for-tv movie "Ubu Roi" by Jean-Christophe Averty in 1965 (It's ok, I've never heard of it either) it's based on the play by Alfred Jarry. "We were taken by it tension between serious and playful, innovative and primitive. And also a sense of alluring repetition that is so relevant right now through the extensive use of gifs and memes."
Very different concepts and source of inspiration but that's the great thing about fashion and the growing number of menswear designers. You will be able to find something that speaks to you. As for me these designers are just some that spoke to me and have me looking forward to Fall 2015.
