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 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.
