Kicking off NYFW:Mens and the morning shows, New York Mens Day fw17 gave us a perspective into the minds of the emerging talent of New York. Like seasons past, NYMD has become the spot for editors + bloggers + influencers to view the collections and catch the menswear vibes. From young minimalists to streetwear attitude to smart suiting, all was here: Uri Minkoff, Max’n Chester, Krammer and Stoudt, Kozaburo, Bristol, and David Hart.
Uri Minkoff brought the city boy out in his fall winter collection. Ribbed leather jackets, camel trenches and of course the classic herringbone pattern on blazers and trousers were on full display complete for the everyday man. If that was not enough, the accessory game was as strong. Models sported giant leather totes, minimalist backpacks, and a matte black bicycle.
Max’n Chester definitely brings the prep boy coolness for fall winter. For the men it was gray tone billowing cardigans, sweaters and overcoats embellished with oversized buttons mixed with bohemian patterned suits layered under parkas. The collection was key for transitioning from the cool temps of fall to the bitter weather of winter. Pairing the carefree looks with a classic shoe wear gave the collection a casual chic vibe.
Krammer and Stoudt wanted to make you go and explore the unknown with their plaid button ups and heavy knit parkas and sweaters. Layering was a key elements to all the looks whether the belted suede over coats or the glossy bombers. A dash of female models wearing a mash up of denim and tartan completed the collection.
The Kozaburo collection brought a fresh interpretation to menswear this season. The spotlight was on shades of blue matched with a leather jacket trench, an oversized turtleneck, and a reworked tuxedo jacket embellished with white fringe and paired with cropped flair trousers, a silky tee and a beret giving us the frenchmen meets punk vibe.
David Hart brought a rare mix of Scottish tartan meets high fashion suiting magnificently. The fusion brought a fresh vision to the vintage tailoring. The fantastical suits were paired with high gloss lace ups and black velvet bow ties making it perfect for a black tie event.
Playful loungewear are the first words that come to mind when thinking about the Fall Winter 17 Menswear Collection by Bristol. We have been seeing a lot of yellow this season, so it was no surprise to see it fused here with a navy tee shirt set paired oversized culottes, and a burgundy knit sweater. Plaid trousers and pussy bows for men gave a new look for practical daywear.
