The New Suburbia: Richard Chai S/S2016

At Skylight Clarckson Sq. in NYC Richard Chai showed his 2016 Spring/Summer collection during New York Fashion Week Men's. I was able to go backstage and have a quick word with Aveda Guest Artist Frank Rizzieri about the inspiration behind the hair styling. Rizzieri said "I used the thickening tonic to bring about a spirited and youthful fulness to the hair, and then the grooming cream and control paste gave the look an edge with the cool tousled style." As he spoke about the products he was using to achieve this look I was surprised to hear that he also added grooming cream and just layering in spots. I never thought about putting hair product in just a couple of spots instead of evenly distributing all over the hair. You learn something new every day!

Cadet Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

One of the things that I look forward to is what time period and place will Cadet take us next season. For next summer they will take us to France preceding the invasion to Normandy by the paratroopers in the demolition section of the United States Army. You'll find black, olive, and khaki in addition to slate in the collection. I'm really digging the great styling with the belted blazers. What do you think? I came a bit early to the presentation and was able to catch the models being placed before the presentation officially started.

It's great to see the stylist in his element as everything has to be perfect for the presentation.

And yes, there was a female model amongst the male models. I think it was great. Sneakers- Greats

These aren't your common place jackets. Look at all those details.

Setting the mood, the live music was a nice addition in the studio.

David Hart Spring/Summer 2016

The David Hart Spring/Summer 2016 collection was inspired by the Bauhaus and it's artists during the inter-war period in Germany. This makes the collection even more special because a time of war inspired such a beautiful interpretation of menswear. The first thing that came to mind when I entered the space of the presentation was stained glass with all it's different colors affected by the sun. You'll find suits made from Irish linen, merino wool, and even an iridescent tuxedo. Take a look and find the next look that will make you the most memorable at the party for all the right reasons.

Close up- What do you think of the necklace? Would you rock it?
These are seriously one of my favorite combination of looks. I think the sunglasses have something to do with it in addition to the rich hues.
Bold suiting and tuxes were seen throughout the collection.

La colección de David Hart primavera/verano de 2016  es inspirada por Bauhaus y los artistas de ese período en Alemania. Esto hace que la colección sea aún más especial ya que una epoca de guerra inspiro esta interpretación tan bella de ropa de hombre. Lo primero que me vino a la mente cuando entré en el espacio de la presentación fue vidrieras con todo los colores diferentes afectados por la luz del sol. Encontrarás trajes de lino irlandés, lana merino e incluso un esmoquin iridiscente. Echa un vistazo y encuentra el look que te hará el más memorable en la fiesta por todas las razones correctas.

What I Wore: NYFWM Day 1

One of the main factors for what I'm going to wear on a certain day is the weather. That's very tricky in a place like New York where the weather shifts from day to day. Luckily, what I had in mind to wear on Day 1 of New York Fashion Week's Men was right on point. These cargo pants by Original Penguin are awesome! The fit is called Rogue and someone at the shows told me he thought I had them tailored because of how well they fit. The shirt from The Tailory NYC I've featured before but thought it was perfect to wear to the shows. Considering how warm it was I was comfortable and looked put together. Score!

Uno de los factores principales de lo que me voy a poner es el clima. En un sitio como Nueva York eso es algo bien importante por que el clima y la temperatura cambia día tras día drasaticamente. Afortunadamente, lo que decidí ponerme para el primer día de New York Fashion Week's Men shows resulto ser lo ideal. Me encantan como estos panatalones cargo por Original Penguin me quedan. Alguien me dijo que pensaron que los llevo a una sasteria por que me queden tan bien. La camisa de The Tailory NYC ya la he mostrado en el blog pero pensé que era perfecta para un dia caluroso y para los shows.
