NYFWM AW16 Day Two

Ovadia & Sons:  Brother duo, Ariel and Shimon, always have one of my favorite shows of the seasons. From the sleek lines to the oversized silhouettes their pieces are ones you can easily translate from the runway to the street – something that’s not often achieved.  Nautica: Honestly, never wanted to be a sailor until the brand’s NYFWM AW16 show, and it more than likely has a lot to do with how handsome most of the guys were in the show, but equally as much with how well the brand has positioned themselves as a more fashion forward version of their former selves – just like their counterpart Perry Ellis. Even though it was their first show in a few years the brand didn’t miss a single beat, and it was hands down one of the best executed shows of the week.  Carlos Campos: We all know that I’m not one to wear a suit, but I think i’d make an exception for Carlos Campos. From the sleek navy and black paired suits to all white looks that I’d never be able to leave the house in without getting stained there wasn’t a single piece that walked down the runway…

NYMD AW16

Matiere: Always a crowd, and personal, favorite Matiere makes even the most laid back, casual piece look the part with it’s expertly tailored pieces. I never realized I wanted a white, fuzzy hoodie until Matiere made me realize that actually, I do need it in my closet.  CWST: I’ve never felt personally transported to a space outside of NYC until I walked into CWST’s presentation at the NYMD AW16 shows. The brand is a mix of west coast vibes and east coast mentality. It’s chill and laid back, and most of all – insanely comfortable, but it also takes a nod from NYC in regards to it’s color palette. You’d be just a swell suited wearing any of these pieces no matter which coast you’re on.  Lucio Castro: I’ve been a fan of the short suit for awhile, and Lucio Castro reminded me why in this season’s presentation. While the majority of the collection isn’t something I would wear on a day to day basis the fits and fabrics he chose would fit in quite nicely in my closet at home.  PLAC: When in doubt, always wear black, and when black doesn’t cut it – throw in a few shades…

NYFWM SS16 Day Four

Not gonna lie, Perry Ellis blew me away again this season, and their collection was hands down my favorite of the NYFWM SS16 season. The color palette was fantastic, the styling was spot on, and I love the direction Michael has taken the brand. Keeping my fingers crossed some of these styles make it into stores, because I’d honestly see myself wearing almost everything that walked down that runway.

The New York Gent

Ray-Ban Sunglasses | Feathers Tank | Your Neighbors Shirt | H&M Shorts (similar here) | Marmol Radziner Cuff + Ring | Sperry Slip-Ons (similar here)  And just like that the first NYFWM is over and done with. I’ve seen some great runways shows and collections, met some incredible people, and actually made a pretty big decision. If all goes according to plan I’m going to be subletting an apartment in the city in September for Fashion Week, and then to try out my hand at living in the city once the shows are over. The New York Gent kind of has a nice ring to it, right?
