Catching up on New York Fashion Week posts after finishing up taking street style and behind the scenes photos for Out, Latina and Logo TV, I wanted to share photos and favorites from Orley’s first official fashion week presentation.
For fall/winter 2014, the collection featured beautiful jacquard sweaters and accessories, including geo-patterned gloves that are lined with leather and feature a wrist strap.
Along with show and behind the scene coverage, I’ve been keep busy shooting street style for Out and Latina magazines. I’ll continue to add street style finds from this fashion week season, but sample some of the best menswear finds so far picked out from my slideshow on Out.com and as a preview of handsome gents I found for Latina.com—plus more of course:
Had the pleasure of spotting Nick Wooster almost each day this fashion week whether was outside, at the Details March issue party or a menswear presentation!
Just before New York Fashion Week officially started, Agentry PR and Cadillac put on the first bi-annual New York Men’s Day to showcase the collections of seven emerging menswear designers.
See preview for each below with more come soon:
Another New York Fashion Week season is among us, and it’s off to a fantastic start with Michael Bastian’s fall/winter 2014 presentation on Tuesday at the Rubin Museum of Art. Inspired by trips to Japan, Bastian’s collection ranged from casual to formal evening wear with different pieces and accessories made with kimono fabric (used in scarves, windbreakers and a kimono itself), or with ethnic and artful embroidery—such as a ‘Samurai armor’ fair isle turtleneck sweater, a track jacket with Mt Fuji on the back and a Godzilla cashmere sweater (which everyone will need right away).
Making Y-3’s Paris Fashion Week debut, Yohji Yamamoto presented the adidas collaboration’s fall/winter 2014/2015 collection in Couvent des Cordeliers. Yamamoto explained that he wanted to pay homage to the couturiers of the 60’s and infuse their spirit into the collection, and was also thinking clothing superheroes wear. He brought these two worlds together for his collection, “cut for an active and fighting life style”.
Bold primaries such as red, yellow and cobalt blue are mixed with black and army green in the sport-chic collection for both men and women, and it was presented in a black and white setting with a neon light backdrop as the models walked the runway to superhero music themes.
For WANT Les Essentiels de la Vie fall/winter 2014 collection, the Peart brothers were inspired by Japan’s design, colors and textures found in its bountiful landscape, and the “dichotomy of Japanese culture—one deeply rooted in time-honored tradition yet at once swiftly ahead of the curve, modern and restrained and its beautiful landscape”.
See the collection below, which features a strong use of blues, stripes and a beautiful mountain landscape print on their Kastrup backpack style:
One of the British menswear brands who kicked off the London Collections: Men today was Topman, who gave us some rainy realness (literally).
Chunky sweaters, topcoats, overcoats, mixed media peacoats and raincoats filled out its line up, and those raincoats were put to the test at the end when the models were drenched during the final walk. Watch the of the full show video at the end.
