New York Men’s Fashion Week AW16

Men’s ready-to-wear fashion week epitomises innovation and the new modish ideal. The fashion extravaganza is quintessential for the experienced and indeed adored fashion creative to showcase their most recent creations. Men’s fashion week is a truly exclusive reality to those who are lucky enough to experience the unveiling firsthand, and the week’s events never failed to surprise us with their contemporary designs. With a nod towards urban street wear, dark elements, and an androgynous ambience that’s currently dominating the fashion industry. This season of men’s fall collections surely stuck to its assurance of engaging and uncompromising genius, remaining devoid of the mundane. We’ve selected our favourite highlights from the Men’s fall collections.

Michael Kors

Fairly utilitarian with this collection, Michael Kors used wool to create many of the garments, creating textured outerwear perfectly tailored to the season. Black, beige and camel being the central colour palette, Kors achieved ultra-androgynous wintry looks with structured silhouettes offset by oversized coats and heavy footwear.

Gypsy Sport

Notoriously known for their illegal street shows before debuting at men’s first fashion week, gypsy-sport maintained their unpredictable reputation with designs emblematic of their unconventional strategies and aesthetics. Showcasing cirque-themed ensembles featuring androgynous models with painted faces and block coloured outerwear decorated with furs in cubes and stripes,. Their collection featured cropped lengths and mismatched layering centred around earthy tones contrasting against candu-blue hues.

McQ Alexander McQueen

The McQueen collection started off with an impressive unveiling of black on black, skin tight leather jeans or oversized flowing trousers, offset by heavy outerwear and thick soled boots, a slightly gothic influence was clear. The collection evolved into pops of colourful grid patterns and closed with a delightfully surprising reveal of bold Aztec colour and denim amid a sea of black lace up leather, which was a notable reference towards the inspiration for this collection, McQueens Scottish roots and his love of Phyllis Galembo photography.

John Elliott

Showcasing his third collection, John Elliott’s collection depicted his inspiration taken from the sporty, urban “ath-leaisure” aesthetic. Featuring an array of monochrome shades, unfitted elasticised garments and layering, John Elliott created textured fabrics and bulky silhouettes, reminiscent of his experiences adventuring around Berling and the Lower East Side, says Elliott.
