New York Fashion Week: Men’s, Fall/Winter 2016 Day 4

Eidos, Timo Weiland and Hickey Freeman Close Out NYFWM

The end of the men’s fashion week showed just how wide the spectrum for style is in New York. We started with Eidos presenting a moody, earthy-colored collection inspired by painter and writer Carlo Levi, then moved on Timo Weiland’s cheerful, 70′s tinged looks for fall. The day ended with a style 180 at Hickey Freeman, a presentation oozing with old- and new- money glamour. Scroll down below for the highlights of the runway, including exclusive front-row and backstage photos from our NYFWM special guest editor, Irving D of @thebrightesthour.

A Strong Grouping of Earthy Colors at Eidos 

Edios designer Antonio Ciongoli put out a collection entirely inspired by writer, painter and political activist Carlo Levi. Colors like taupe, sage, emerald and moss were pulled straight from his paintings and appeared on clothes that, while refined in materials and construction, referenced the style of the early 20th-century peasants Levi wrote about.

Traditionally structured garments like blazers and suit pants were cut looser and softer this season, a look that’s just right for the “the guy that works for himself”, said Timo. “It’s grown up, but still having fun.”

Hickey Freeman Designer Arnold Brant Silverstone

Hickey Freeman designer Arnold Brant Silverstone separated his fall/winter 2016 collection into three distinct groupings: The Highlands, The Strand, and Greenwich.

17-NYFWM-Hickey-Freeman-POV-Short

Tweedy Classics Were Rethought in Lighter Fabrics

The Highlands was a tweedy capsule of clothes you could image wearing on a shooting weekend in yes, the Highlands of Scotland. What’s new were lighter weight fabrics and knits, “updated for a younger generation”, said Arnold.

The Suiting Collection Gave Wall Street Power-Dressing a Modern Update

When the Hickey Freeman man isn’t away at his county estate, he can step into their suiting collection Arnold dubbed “The Strand”, a modern update on Wall Street power-player glam. His final grouping, named “Greenwich”, was a capsule of camel and cream vicuñas and zillion-ply cashmeres, just right for those casual Fridays or a Saturday lunch with the kids on Greenwich Avenue.

The “Greenwich” Grouping Featured Ultra-Luxe Materials Like Vicuña and Cashmere

Let Arnold Brant Silverstone personally take you through Hickey Freeman’s fall/winter 2016 collection at the Saks YouTube channel.

New York Fashion Week: Men’s, Fall/Winter 2016 Day 3

Men's Fashion Director Eric Jennings Catches up with Billy Reid, the Latest from Michael Kors, and More

Mid-week at the men’s New York fall/winter shows gave us two great perspectives on American style. First up was Michael Kors doing what he does best – super luxe, polished sportswear for the glam, urbane man on the go. Later in the day, Billy Reid’s runway show was a study in lightness and ease, but not without texture. Tweeds and double-faced wools were set down the runway in loose cuts and enveloping silhouettes, quite the earthy, vintage-tinged counterpoint to the Kors man. Scroll down below to see our very own Eric Jennings, Saks VP, Men’s Fashion Director, catch up with Billy Reid backstage, along with collection highlights and front row action from our special NYFWM guest correspondent Irving D of @thebrightesthour.

A Heavy Military Influence at Ovadia & Sons 

Raiding references from all branches of the military, Ovadia & Sons reworked Army camos, Air Force flight jackets, and Navy knits into their signature tailored menswear, a look that brothers Ariel and Shimon Ovadia personally endorsed when bowing out their show in matching satin bombers.

An Elegantly Macabre Tableau at John Varvatos

Over at John Varvatos, the designer stayed true to his rock ‘n’ roll ethos. Held at his downtown flagship, the old CBGB’s music club, guests walked into a surreal and gloriously macabre tableau of mannequins and models alike, dressed to the nines in slim double and single breasted suits, taxidermy animal heads obscuring faces. The hallmarks of Varvatos – shearlings, leathers, and tarnished silver jewelry, were in fine form under the red lights of this very fashionable haunted dream world.
