Ovadia & Sons Spring/Summer 2014 Presentation at NYFW

Ovadia & Sons Spring/Summer 2014 Presentation at NYFW

Earlier today, designers Ariel and Shimon Ovadia debuted their Spring/Summer 2014 collection at their first ever New York Fashion Week presentation. The duo continues to impress with a slew of timeless offerings in the form of tailored suiting in sharp silhouettes. What really stood out is the outerwear lineup from Ovadia & Sons come next Spring. A lightweight reflective anorak stood out but the label’s neoprene moto jacket wins here. Look for a range of unique materials throughout the collection and a color palette that’s dominated with black and white but features pops of green and blue.

Les Hommes Spring/Summer 2014 Collection

Les Hommes Spring/Summer 2014 Collection

Les Hommes presented their Spring/Summer 2014 collection at this week’s Milan Fashion Week, with designers Tom Notte and Bart Vandebosch presenting one of the standout collections of the show. Tees and even bomber jackets are brought into what is predominantly a formal lineup, though they’re infused in a very fluid manner. T-shirts as well as the core suiting offerings get some leather infusion as well, which looks extremely wearable.

MBFW | J.Crew Fall/Winter 2013 Presentation

MBFW | J.Crew Fall/Winter 2013 Presentation

J.Crew presented their men’s and women’s collections for Fall/Winter 2013 at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, showcasing two very complete and wearable collections. The brand’s done an exceptional job raising awareness for the presentation through their various social and digital outlets, most notably Instagram and Tumblr. The hype was built and J.Crew delivered.

Frank Muytjens, head of men’s design, pulled inspiration from many places including wide-angled David Bailey portraits from the 1960s, particularly ones of Michael Caine, a visit to the Welsh countryside and a day-trip to Oxford, England. The designer reexamined classics – English tweeds, oilcloth, herringbones and black watch fabrics, but cut in clean silhouettes gave them a kind of strong, masculine heft. These rich fabrics are delivered effortlessly in J.Crew’s Ludlow suit fit while other complimentary pieces fill up the rest of the collection. All-in-all, we saw the suiting for F/W 2013 to be the strongest we’ve ever seen from the American label.

MBFW | Public School Fall/Winter 2013 Presentation

MBFW | Public School Fall/Winter 2013 Presentation

Last night, Public School presented their Fall/Winter 2013 collection at Milk MADE Studios and we on hand to check it out. Designers Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow have always looked at Public School to find perfection in imperfection and so the theme for F/W 2013 is natural. It centers around destruction and reconstruction to portray the essence of breaking objects down to their core and building them back up. Fabric development is key here with wool blended knits and stretch skins, making way for a solid collection featuring some top-notch pieces. The lineup includes tailored jackets with leather sleeves, ombre and fabric blocking in everything from shirts to sweaters as well as a few motorcycle jackets we can’t wait to see in-stores come this fall.

All the looks were paired with Generic Man x Public School creepers.

A.P.C. Fall/Winter 2013 Collection

A.P.C. Fall/Winter 2013 Collection

French brand A.P.C. gives us a look at their Fall 2013 collection which features a muted color palette that’s filled primarily with deep reds and blues, black and gray. There’s a collegiate influence here with the delivery of casual sweatshirts and a varsity jacket though the formal pieces aren’t forgotten. Look for well-fitting trousers and a navy double-breasted suit I was wish was in my closet yesterday.

PFW | Thom Browne Fall/Winter 2013 Collection

PFW | Thom Browne Fall/Winter 2013 Collection

Once again, Thom Browne blessed the stage of Paris Fashion Week with a phenomenal collection. The heavy wools and tweeds are delivered in a range of patterns while the models wore the pieces in boxy cuts. The New York-based designer brought out stars, squares, and stripes to really make the offerings standout from seasons past. All-in-all, the suiting, as quirky as the presentation was, stood out the most as we expect the gray and midnight blue color palette to really be a push for Fall 2013.
