We had such an inspiring journey covering New York Fashion Week: Men’s Fall/Winter 2019 shows. Here are some of our favorite presentations, runway shows, upcoming designers, and trends to look out for next season!
New York Men’s Day Fall/Winter 19
All was ablaze with Sundae School and their fiery line inspired by smokewear and Chinese influence. Traditional ceremony garb was mixed with leather accessories to hold a smoking device.
All of the lights, all of the lights. Krammer & Stoudt brought the psychedelic styles of California musicians and life in Hollywood to life. Slouchy suits and leopard print served as stand-alone pieces with fur coats that screamed classic rockstar.
Vasilis Loizides presented an androgynous Western-inspired collection. Mesh tops and cutaway pants were eye-catching and bold for the more traditional gentleman.
David Hart brought us back to the swingin’ styles of the ’70s with tailored suits and an emphasis on large lapels. The neutral colors and minimal styles were right up our alley.
The Descendant of Thieves collection made us feel part of a futuristic and bold world. Detailed prints decorated every piece from tailored shorts to button-up shirts. This line played up layering and mixing different fit types in each look.
A memorable presentation was put on by O.N.S. A line inspired by airplane attire. Lengthy blazers and durable menswear staples were a pattern throughout. Tons of sleek lines and slim silhouettes. We also couldn’t help but notice the Crash Baggage luggage on display, which is such a great spin on the standard carry-on.
Tanaka brought Japanese culture to the surface with inspired heritage design and a modern twist. Each piece looked pleasing to the eye as well as the touch.
Designer Chan Chit Lo kept up their eccentric youthful line with tons of distressed pieces. A younger demographic will appreciate the street-smart aesthetic with a dedication to precision and fabric details.
Ka Wa Key was such an interesting sight. Models changed out of loose hoodies, puffer coats, mesh pieces, denim and then some right in front of us! This presentation mixed the worlds of dance, fashion, movement, and sexuality.
It was easy to recognize the Tribeca influence of the Dear Miler collection immediately. This line features clean lines and muted colors with everything from zip-up shirts to cropped pants. The preppy and individual looks appeared comfortable and stylish. Think fresh, airy, minimal, and functional pieces that appear intentional.
CFDA Fall/Winter 19 Shows
Landlord is always a fun, high-energy show with a rebellious feel. The collection brought student chic with letterman jackets and stand-out car coats that reminded us of college fashion in our early twenties. Athletic wear appeared comfortable yet quality to match the designer’s unique style. We were also fortunate enough to be backstage and watch the dress rehearsal this season!
As lovers of history and fashion, we were enthralled with the Joseph Abboud voyage inspired collection. Immigrant Abboud showcased his vintage roots with fabrics such as tweed and leather to create three-piece suits that are already on our wishlist.
Nihl continued his flamboyant approach to fashion with designs inspired by gamers in a youthful, playful way. Shocking pieces included cutaway unitards and leather pants for a provocative view of Middle America.
Another Midwest inspired line was Todd Snyder. Nods to college interests and state colors immediately carry his overall theme. Such a huge fan of his elevated athleisure pieces which you can carry into almost all seasons.
The Bode collection brought out pop art pieces with apparel inspired by 80’s culture. We were enchanted by the use of color throughout their entire line, which really made them stand out. The retro vibes were refreshing yet super nostalgic.
The signature romantic style of Robert Geller and his collaboration with Lululemon took on an intergalactic theme with moon prints on top of his athletic gear. Sentimental monograms and performance pieces inspired us to get out and be active.
Charismatic TOM FORD brought glossy jewel tones to the runway. This ready-to-wear collection kept us wanting more velvet, deep burgundy, and metallic accents.
