NYFW Menswear Recap


That’s a wrap for Men’s NYFW. From July 10-July 13th, the fashion industry has been introducing menswear collections for Spring/Summer 2018. The old and the new came out and presented collections in a fashionable manner.

Menswear is booming here in New York City and the energy is increasing each year for men’s fashion. Each season, we’re in awe of how far menswear has come, and we can’t wait to see how the menswear for Spring/Summer 2018 trends develops in street style.

While we loved many collections, we’ve put together a list of five of our favorites we saw this past week:

Deveaux is a New York-based luxury menswear label, who made its debut on  the  runway for the CFDA’s NYFW: Men’s at EN Japanese Brasserie on July 12th, 2017.  Their inspiration came from the complex yet beautifully simple works by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, playing with depth and visibility through the use of color-blocking, embroidery, and trompe l’oeil detail. The color scheme featured blacks, beiges, greys, whites and olives.

Palmiers du Mal debuted their latest collection, 2018.01, “Palm Wednesday,” at the Rose Bar at Gramercy Park Hotel on July 12th. The collection was inspired by universal, unisex shapes and dove into a deeper narrative set around the idea of dismantling authority. There was shown an exploration of colliding worlds, with brash Dalmatian print splashed against a creamy velvet, a wild French made African tribal mask textile, exclusive to the brand, with soft silk rose piping atop sumptuous ecru French Terry Cloth.

On Monday, July 10th, Christopher Lowman introduced its SS’18 collection to a crowd of fashionistas at the HGU New York Hotel. Inspiration came from the modern day college student battling the everyday chain of emotions such as financial instability and mental health issues that leads to the possibility of becoming a college dropout. It created a classic and refined fit for the modern man with a highly individual sense of style to bring together Christopher Lowman’s SS’18 collection called HARVARD PUNK’D.

David Hart’s SS’18 collection was full of striped blazers, buttoned high, over Huaraches made with Toms; neck scarves worn sash-like; pocket squares and Panama hats; banana prints; and knitted polos. Its inspiration derived from a Cuban traveler in spirit due to the designer’s trip never occurring. He channeled the panache of Habana Vieja, mixing a quiet mid-century ‘swagger’ with a sense of contemporariness.

Emily Bode’s label, which is now just a year old, launched its SS’18 collection and revolved its setting around a familiar one: one’s own home and history. Bode used older materials in ways that modern stories could be told. Through floral patterns and relaxed stripes, it conveyed a message of a collection that is at ease at home, which is why the models were presented on beds.
