Mensweek Spring 2016
I love this guy. He’s so smooth. With all his collections. The monochromatic start of this show with the beautiful pajama style shirts and their oversized hoods that are seen throughout the collection are the perfect detail. Theres something military as well about this line. The sleeping reserves we could call them…from another land.
I love how he works in stripes slowly and then he works a layer of sheer black items over white suits. He takes to full on stripe suits, camels, then forest, and then finally a beautiful organic print on a white top and drop crotch summer tree green pant. He plays with fringe and becomes realistic with beautiful leather backpacks. Everything is loose fitting and realistic and yet seems fresh in a way for Spring 2016 with a few double dares that I hope a few of my friends in NYC will take. For me, this show is absolute success with each and every look and soothing on my eyes; a rarity in menswear.
