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.
From New York clothier Ovadia & Sons comes these Italian indigo blue linen shorts finished in the label’s signature striped linen and fitted with a cuff to seal the deal. American-made with the utmost detail, these shorts also feature a hidden watch pocket and will look good all summer long. They’re available now through Ovadia & Sons online.
GQ Eye gives us a first look at Ovadia & Sons’ Fall 2012 lookbook. We spoke to Ariel a bit before the brand’s showing at (capsule) and even as you get a few hints at what’s to come, the final product is beyond what we were imagining. Look for a full look at the range to drop soon, which we’ll be sure to highlight when it drops.
Road to (capsule) is a Por Homme exclusive, made possible by the good folks behind the (capsule) tradeshow, and of course, the person(s) being interviewed. We ask each designer a few questions that help to give us — as fans, readers, observers, whatever — a better understanding of what makes these gifted individuals tick. The questions are fairly uniform, but as you’ll see, the answers are far from that. The (capsule) show invades New York January 16th and 17th, giving viewers first looks at Fall/Winter 2012 collections from the industry’s most reputable men’s labels.
We recently had the opportunity to connect with Ariel, one-half of New York-based label Ovadia & Sons, ahead of their viewing at this month’s (capsule) show in New York. Along with his twin brother, Shimon, the duo has been able to really get some serious recognition since launching last spring. The goods from their F/W ’11 collection can be found at New York’s C.H.C.M. and online through their own boutique as well as Park & Bond. Here’s what Ariel had to say as the entire Ovadia & Sons team preps for (capsule) New York.
From Ovadia & Sons comes a look at their Fall 2011 lookbook. Brothers Shimon and Ariel deliver huge once again as we’re confident this will be one of the top collections from this segment of the overall menswear landscape. Well fitting suiting is paired with modern-cut shirting with cutaway collars and top-quality fabrics. The pieces show a strong level of detail and will be extremely wearable now and for the months ahead. Good friend and New York-based photographer Justin Chung was behind the lens while artistic direction was provided by Lawrence Schlossman of Sartorially Inclined. (via GQ Eye)
Ovadia & Sons is beginning to gain some traction in the menswear space, so much so that you can expect the label’s Ready-to-Wear offerings to be stocked at one our favorite New York shops — C.H.C.M. (Link to CityTour page) This season’s collection features a range of well-made, wearable pieces such as cords in a few different colors, all slimmed down for a more fitted cut. Also, the ‘Walking Jacket’ pictured above looks pristine with its grey wool flannel shell and snuff suede trimmings.
Predicting where the menswear market will be in a year or two from now or even five years from now is no easy task but I sincerely believe the folks at Ovadia & Sons are one of the few in the industry that are really good at it. In past seasons, we seen them deliver product that’s modern yet timeless and downright essential. Their following is steadily growing and that can be mainly attributed to some press love and their ability to just make clothes that men want to wear.
This week’s (capsule) show in New York had some solid brands on display, including one of our personal favorites — Ovadia & Sons. From their previous work, we know they can dish out some really amazing product and they’ve done just that with their Spring 2011 collection. WATM tells us this is just their 3rd season and the two brothers from Brooklyn are doing a phenomenal job offering pieces that are as functional as they are wearable.
