New York Fashion Week Men's 2017 continues to build momentum. This season brought new designers and exciting collections. NYFWM kicked of the fashion week season here with NYFW following on the 9th. As we gear up for another hectic season we start things of with a flurry of presentations from some innovative designers. We chose eight presentations around Manhattan, to start things of. Samuelson, V.K. Nagrani , David Naman, Robert James, R. Swaider, Maiden Noir , Private Policy, and WOODHOUSE
The presentations were unique in style and concept. Here’s a brief breakdown on what inspired what.
V.K. Nagrani – Inspired by the notion of the past and the essence of masculinity, VK presented a collection that offers functional and stylish pieces. The designer showed 12 complete looks, each representing their own version of Bruce Wayne.
Maiden Noir – What does the world look like through the eyes of a painter. The fabrics for the collection are a mixture of warm natural wools in loose oversize over coats. These are paired with lighter hued shirts.
WOODHOUSE – The start of a newer attitude towards how men present themselves
R. Swaider- Inspired by the suave and functional Parisian man; Swaider provides an experience to luxuriate in.
Private Policy - Everyone should make their own rules. We are not trying to make fancy s*** for people, we rather make Public Policy, just some cool stuff for our friends.
Over the last few seasons we have seen the runways and showcases reflect much of the issues we are facing in society these days. This season was no different bold statements were everywhere. One of the most interesting influences came from Robert James who brought the protest to his presentation. His designs conveyed a futuristic, post-apocalyptic sensitivity. His models all carried placard signs that could have come straight from any of the numerous marches, and protests taking place in the United States and other parts of the world. There is a lot going on this season, and a lot to see. It’s only just begun, stay tuned for more Posh fashion coverage.
