Three Designers We Adore: NYC Fashion Week 2012

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

 

 

Todd Snyder

At first glance, one notices similarities in this line and Gilded Age for fall. But rest assured, they are very different. One thing to notice is the rolled up pants in several designers’ shows (we’ve also seen it in the last post about Alexander McQueen, Burberry, and Armani). Todd Snyder’s line shows up yet another way to pair this “rolled up pant look” with an outdoorsy flair, albeit another layered one, with pops of unexpected color, like rustic orange, in between the browns, greys, and khaki colors.

What we love: the working man’s boots, layered cardigans, rolled up fitted pants, fur lined coats, fingerless gloves (especially in olive green) coupled with a simple beret. All amount to one sexy, effortless look for fall.

Joseph Abboud

GQ Reports: “In his first fall collection for Joseph Abboud, newly-enlisted designer Bernardo Rojo goes in for the kill. First up, details, lots of them: flecked wool and houndstooth trousers, slick Glen plaid and flannel suits with wide lapels, luxe trucker and cruiser jackets, chunky turtlenecks and cable knits, and one well-groomed mohair suit jacket. These unlikely combinations mingled with equally curious colors, from pinkish brown to you-stay-classy burgundy to winter white. Blended together, it all became a two-pronged look: one part super-fly businessman, one part tree-chopping outdoorsman.”

Gilded Age

This upcoming fall season, Gilded Age (GA), it seems to be all about layering (well of course) and the mixing of textures. In this ultra modern, yet throw back to the 90s with a nod to sophistication, GA sends a rough, refined message to viewers (and wearers). We Love: the well-worn leather jackets, chunky sweaters, layered fabrics and textures, soft leather boots without adornments, and pops of unexpected color on hemlines.

GQ Reports: “Racing stripes were subtly woven into scarves and sweaters and the subdued, dusty grays and blues used throughout ensured this season stay on the softer side of chopper culture.” So that’s the unexpected color pops we love?
