On day 2 of NYFW Men’s the real action begins – and I had the chance to film more streetstyle looks. I believe streetstyle is, when compare to the shows, equally important to get a sense of what’s coming up.
One thing can be derived from New York’s streets – it’s not just about having the latest “it” pieces anymore, it’s about combining items from different seasons. Clothes, which you bought maybe a few years ago, but you picked them carefully and still love them. I think well made high fashion pieces are like art investments – they don’t get old, they become more interesting with time. When you buy something always ask yourself: “is it love”? If the answer is yes it will not just be a one night stand.
Now back to the “up to date” fashion:
The whole collection is very street, but didn’t really convince me. Carlos Garcia Velez shows Hoodies and Raincoats with graphic patterns – nothing really new but wearable.
This was probably the most anticipated (and visited) show of Day 2. The collection was dominated by a mix of a very shiny pink satin and a dull wool fabric in dark olive tones, that seems to be inspired by old military coats. But the interesting pieces in this collection are the accessories for me.
I especially love the epaulettes with shoulder tassels, which have been styled as layering pieces and will upgrade every look. And then there also were face masks in splashing colors like fuchsia. The whole collection had a military revolution appeal with the shoulder tassels, russian hats and face masks.
