Elliott Evan FW13 NYFW
The Elliott Evan label made a New York Fashion week debut with his ‘NEVER FOREVER’ collection for Fall/Winter 2013. Designer Elliott Giffis made some power plays with this intriguing menswear showcase. The styling was impactful, and needless to say the decision to include high-caliber models brought added attention. Opening the show with model of the moment, our fdmLOVES boy-wonder Willy Cartier kicked the collection into high gear for our viewing pleasure.
Giffis shared some of his creative process:“NEVER FOREVER is deeply influenced by the form of the male figure. That is what initially took hold of this collection, while developing, in the pattern process, and delving into what makes a man masculine – it took a turn at a certain point during the study, and the emphasis began to evolve into a shape which breaks barriers while maintaining what makes a man strong… ”
The new collection had some edgy moments with high collars and very exaggerated draping and exposed zippers. the (sort of) masked men walked with sandy white sprinkles faces and hair buns – love. Still, the selection of fabrics of with handcrafted execution got our attention with the artsy vibe. We’re watching this young designer and looking forward to seeing what is to come. fdmLOVES Elliott Evan FW13 selects by Brigitte Segura, Written by Sarah A. Freiseis.
