Frank Muytjen and team at J.Crew presented this week at New York Fashion Week, showcasing both their men’s and women’s offerings for Spring/Summer 2014. Here, we have all the men’s looks from the show, giving you the opportunity to check out the diverse range of styles the American brand will be releasing come next spring. Chambray will be seen on a lot of the pieces while you can also expect a few nautical striped tops in the mix as well. There are a few suits and blazers coming for S/S ’14, all hitting stores just in time for the summer wedding season.
Todd Snyder has displayed an unparalleled level of endurance since launching in 2011. Every piece is meticulously crafted with the utmost attention to detail. For Spring 2014, Todd Snyder brings in rolled short-sleeve chambray button-downs, crisp nautical striped tees, and a range of trousers pulling influence from sea and sun of the Mediterranean. Look for micro prints, shawl-lapel tuxedo jackets, a smart single-pleat short, and patterned knitwear.
Earlier today, designers Ariel and Shimon Ovadia debuted their Spring/Summer 2014 collection at their first ever New York Fashion Week presentation. The duo continues to impress with a slew of timeless offerings in the form of tailored suiting in sharp silhouettes. What really stood out is the outerwear lineup from Ovadia & Sons come next Spring. A lightweight reflective anorak stood out but the label’s neoprene moto jacket wins here. Look for a range of unique materials throughout the collection and a color palette that’s dominated with black and white but features pops of green and blue.
J.Crew presented their men’s and women’s collections for Fall/Winter 2013 at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, showcasing two very complete and wearable collections. The brand’s done an exceptional job raising awareness for the presentation through their various social and digital outlets, most notably Instagram and Tumblr. The hype was built and J.Crew delivered.
Frank Muytjens, head of men’s design, pulled inspiration from many places including wide-angled David Bailey portraits from the 1960s, particularly ones of Michael Caine, a visit to the Welsh countryside and a day-trip to Oxford, England. The designer reexamined classics – English tweeds, oilcloth, herringbones and black watch fabrics, but cut in clean silhouettes gave them a kind of strong, masculine heft. These rich fabrics are delivered effortlessly in J.Crew’s Ludlow suit fit while other complimentary pieces fill up the rest of the collection. All-in-all, we saw the suiting for F/W 2013 to be the strongest we’ve ever seen from the American label.
Last night, Public School presented their Fall/Winter 2013 collection at Milk MADE Studios and we on hand to check it out. Designers Maxwell Osborne and Dao-Yi Chow have always looked at Public School to find perfection in imperfection and so the theme for F/W 2013 is natural. It centers around destruction and reconstruction to portray the essence of breaking objects down to their core and building them back up. Fabric development is key here with wool blended knits and stretch skins, making way for a solid collection featuring some top-notch pieces. The lineup includes tailored jackets with leather sleeves, ombre and fabric blocking in everything from shirts to sweaters as well as a few motorcycle jackets we can’t wait to see in-stores come this fall.
All the looks were paired with Generic Man x Public School creepers.
Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen presented their F/W 2013 collection earlier today and not only did we get a chance to check out the label’s men’s collection, but today also marked the debut of its women’s collection. Micah looked to infuse the philosophy behind the Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen men’s line and translate it into a women’s collection. As for the men’s offerings, expect Cohen’s signature slim suiting, athletic-inspired knits and outerwear including baseball jackets and boiled wool overcoats. Taking a cue from his S/S ’13 collection, Cohen included more color than in previous fall collections, in rich autumnal colorblocking seen throughout.
Here, you’ll find all the men’s looks from the Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen F/W 2013 Presentation as well as a few of our favorite women’s looks.
Here we have a look at J.Lindeberg‘s Spring/Summer 2013 collection presented during New York Fashion Week. The label really aims to take it back to their Scandinavian roots and the “Swedish from above” theme for the season is spot on with the delivery. The offerings range from fine suiting in shades of blue and beige to nylon and leather outerwear layered effortlessly in the styled shots. S/S ’13 is also the first time the women’s line was showcased in North America and as the Swedish brand has really made some great strides over the years, the timing is just right.
Earlier today, New York-based Public School presented their S/S ’13 collection during an eventful Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week here in NYC. The inspiration behind their latest lineup is “structure” as they looked to classic architectural forms to help frame the collection both historically and figuratively.
We examined the concept of “structure” and how it exists contextually within society.We were very interested how a delicate balance and network of relationships helped to form structure and provide a base in which all law and order was supported.

Todd Snyder presented his Fall 2012 collection this week at New York Fashion Week.

Included in the lineup are tailored topcoats and a ton of more military-inspired pieces such as sulfur-dyed cargos, black indigo office sweaters, and oiled moleskin pea coats. Looks at the entire collection below.
