NYFW Men’s Spring ’16

By Jo Phillips

NYFW Men’s SS ’16 Intro The much anticipated NYFW Men’s took place in July 2015, kicking off a new fashion week to add to our calendars. Established names but also up and coming designers showcased their SS ’16 collections with NY as their backdrop. A contemporary “all American” sensibility was clear from these collections that mostly focused on sportswear but with unexpected twists. Shorts have been reinvented with new length and width and often paired with blazers. The casual element was strong but perfect tailoring was also part of some collections as seen at Theory, where female and male models modelled the collection side by side giving a new fresh look to the suit. Even designers like Thom Browne moved away from his usual over-the-top pieces and kept it classic for this menswear collection, giving us polished head-to-toe looks. Although not as daring as lace outfits seen at Moschino, some NY based designers also incorporated intricate fabrics for new dimension and feel, as seen at Billy Reid. Overall the reinvented shorts, athletic wear, tailored suits made for a classic yet fresh approach to menswear. We have selected 5 designers to illustrate some trends seen for SS ’16 and what we expect to see worn around the streets of NYC come spring. So below are a few newer names for you to get to know along side a couple of old favourites.
