Todd Snyder has displayed an unparalleled level of endurance since launching in 2011. Every piece is meticulously crafted with the utmost attention to detail. For Spring 2014, Todd Snyder brings in rolled short-sleeve chambray button-downs, crisp nautical striped tees, and a range of trousers pulling influence from sea and sun of the Mediterranean. Look for micro prints, shawl-lapel tuxedo jackets, a smart single-pleat short, and patterned knitwear.

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.

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.

NYFW | Diesel Black Gold Fall/Winter 2011 Presentation

We’ve gotten our hands on a couple shots from Diesel Black Gold’s A/W 2011 presentation at New York Fashion Week. There’s much to be had here and I can say that with much confidence. The distressed leather jacket shown above is just one example how well crafted this collection truly is. Timeless staples such as a black peacoat are mixed in with slim fit suiting and must-have mid layer pieces.

NYFW | Billy Reid Fall/Winter 2011 Presentation at MILK

NYFW | Billy Reid Fall/Winter 2011 Presentation at MILK

Billy Reid had another successful showing at this week’s New York Fashion Week. The southern designer’s Fall 2011 collection is filled with gems and though we saw the offerings at (capsule) a few weeks back, the presentation puts the complete lineup into perspective and gives it some meaning. Some of the standout items to anticipate include an English tweed blanket lined car coat as well as a Hand-tailored navy four-harness hopsack double-breasted jacket.

NYFW | GANT by Michael Bastian Fall/Winter 2011 Presentation

NYFW | GANT by Michael Bastian Fall/Winter 2011 Presentation

We had the opportunity to check out the GANT by Michael Bastian Fall 2011 collection in person last week at New York Fashion Week and have to say we were thoroughly impressed. The gifted designer took much inspiration from a weekend getaway in a small cabin in a Nordic forest, blanketed in snow and isolated from the rest of the world. The result is a tremendously curated lineup, which infuses American heritage with the brand’s Scandinavian roots.

Key pieces include waffle knit thermals, patched and mended Shetland sweaters, ski and tracking-influenced outerwear, as well as washed cotton moleskin, corduroy and flannel tailored pants and other clothing.

Preview | Steven Alan Fall 2011 NYFW Presentation

Preview | Steven Alan Fall 2011 NYFW Presentation
Steven Alan presented his Fall 2011 collection to kick off New York Fashion Week and from the preview shots, we’ve got a solid lineup to look forward to. The styling is very outdoorsy this time around with items such as a mountaineering jacket, down jacket, and four-button blazer all added to the mix. The layering is really well done with cardigans and other fine knits playing a crucial mid layer role. We spied at least one pair of hiking boots so let’s hope they’re still relevant next fall.
