Jockum Klenell captures Italian label Scapa Men's expansive FW15 lookbook, showcasing the sharp tailoring and chic sportswear, all worn by Arthur Gosse, Alexander Vander Stichele, Hannes Gobeyn, and Simon Van Meervenne.
Steven Meisel and Karl Templer shot and styled a sepia-tinged campaign for Coach's Fall/Winter 2015 men's collection, starring Benjamin Allen and Niels Trispel.
Deconstructed tailoring was the focus of Raf Simons' FW15 collection and those sublime coats are front and center in the Belgian designer's latest campaign starring Artur Chruszcz, Jonas Boons, Luca Lemaire and Niels Trispel, all shot once again by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Olivier Rizzo.
Nautica's new men's designer Steve McSween took the label's heritage in sailing and swimwear and mixed with wearable sportswear and tech to create a collection that turned the venerable label fashionable again with sharp tailored jackets, utilitarian coats, and a plethora of covetable swimwear options.
Michael Maccari is Perry Ellis' new man in charge and he clearly got the note that one of SS16's biggest trends is transparency. There were super thin and lightweight layers at Ellis' SS16 show like cool knits and shirts that are perfect for layering or just letting it all hang out for the world to see. The idea of freedom was also seen throughout the collection, like bolder patterns and roomier silhouettes but also the label's freedom from being associated with stodgy department store wears. It should also be noted that the models wore the label's new compression layers underneath, as evidenced by some of the athletic looks, with a peek at the tights worn under shorts.
Stripes, Rock n' Roll, and a canopy of umbrellas above was how John Varvatos concluded the inaugural season of NYFW:M. The formula at Varvatos has always rang true and hits the right spot for his legion of followers and customers. The collections are often similar, with a new bag here, a bold new pattern there, a switch of weight of the suit fabrics but the essence is the same. With Varvatos being one of the most venerated designers showing a full show during this all-important expo of American fashion talents, it's easy to see why he wouldn't want to fix something that isn't broken and proves why he works with some of rock's biggest names like Kiss and Jimmy Page.
Texture and pattern were front and center at Lucio Castro's latest collection. Ethnic patterns, halos, and weaved fabrics flowed together to create a street-friendly collection.
Volume and softness mixed well at deTROIT's SS16 collection, full of roomy and chic layers, in mostly muted tones of grey and blue, with a yellow short suit thrown in to lighten the moody collection, full of smudged eyeliner and a hint of a hangover after a raucous nights partying with rock stars.
Loris Diran's SS16 runway show was set in a music hall with great acoustics. The parallel between the paneled walls and ceiling that reflected back the sounds of the music played in the room with Diran's reverberating collection did not fall on deaf ears. Slim tailoring was mixed with street elements like drop crotch pants to create a duality between casualwear and boardroom dressing.
