After a busy first day of #NYFWM, we started Day 2 with a busy morning at the Skylight Clarkson North.
The morning kicked off with a great looking runway at the Joseph Abboud FW ’16 Show. From a far it was not noticeable, but a closer look at the backdrop of the runway, and attendees could see Abboud’s attention to detail with a herringbone pattern mixed in. While look in the collection were monochromatic, full of black, gray, and camel, the attention to detail continued. As more and more looks came down the runway, I fell in love with each look. As I venture into wearing more fitted suits on a daily basis, Abboud’s collection could definitely assist in preparing my closet. My favorite look was worn by model, Sean Opry and can be seen below. Joseph Abboud’s collection was based on the theme, “when romance meets masculinity.” The theme that was well portrayed with the ambiance, the runway, and every piece that was shown. And let’s talk about front row goals, check out the VIPs in attendance.
Next, the Stampd presentation gave a smoky urban vibe. The presentation previewed guest to the collection in a room where fog lined the floors and models were raised above the crowd to get a good view. Check out some of the collection below:
The morning continued with the Duckie Brown presentation. Prior to the presentation starting, the designers themselves walked around offering delicious Brioche to everyone in attendance. Along with showing a new collection, this presentation was especially exciting, as they introduced the new Converse Chuck II Sneakers. The crisp white walls and floors really helped one focus on the great collection and the details of each look.
To finish the morning of shows and presentations, Public School, gave us edgy looks during their FW ’16 show and had us obsessing over their leather jackets.
After a lunch break, the Robert Geller show caught our attention aong with the attention of attendees like Fern Mallis. Several of their pieces bring twists on old classics and show how women’s wear influences menswear. Trends that we noticed from other shows inlcude the trunks that were featured on the runway. The monochromatic looks below were some of our favorites that walked down the runway:
We felt right at home with Nautica runway show. Their runway rendering of a bridge reminded us of the Ravenel Bridge in Charleston. The looks from the Nautica show hit close to home with colors and pieces very common in our closets. Of course, Nautica has found new ways to mix colors, blocking, and patterns. Their FW ’16 collection will definitely find a good home in our closets once available.
Other designers showing on Day 2 of #NYFWM included: Carlos Campos, Zachary Prell, Ovadia & Sons, Brett Johnson, and John Varvatos.
