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.
New York designer Thom Browne presented his S/S 2014 collection during Paris Fashion Week over the weekend, bringing forth a militaristic theme. Models walked in Gestapo-style uniforms with colors ranging from navy and grey to red and black. Feminine makeup and styling is merged with masculine pieces and looks.
Band of Outsiders presented their Spring/Summer 2014 Menswear collection with musician Devendra Banhart earlier this week at The Chateau Marmont. The collection features an incredible mix of wearable product from Scott Sternberg and team. Inspiration came from a 70s “prepster” Mick Jagger trapped in a hotel room that, according to Sternberg embodied a “cool, sexy, easy, youthful vibe.” In the lineup, expect to see everything from patterned sleepwear to shorts and chinos. Lightweight fabrics and summer tones are seen throughout the collection, while hoodies and blazers are delivered in leather.
Bally brings forth their S/S 2014 “Tour de Bally” collection, which takes much inspiration from cycling. With the lineup split into three buckets — City Biker, Cross-Country, and Racer — the collection is perfect for everyone from the city racer to the weekend traveler. Old school 1950s photography from the Tour de Suisse played a huge role in shaping these offerings and Bally did an exceptional job blending class Bally pieces from their archives with innovative treatments and techniques.
Look for the range to be available early 2014 through select stockists and Bally boutiques worldwide.
Les Hommes presented their Spring/Summer 2014 collection at this week’s Milan Fashion Week, with designers Tom Notte and Bart Vandebosch presenting one of the standout collections of the show. Tees and even bomber jackets are brought into what is predominantly a formal lineup, though they’re infused in a very fluid manner. T-shirts as well as the core suiting offerings get some leather infusion as well, which looks extremely wearable.
For S/S 2014, Louis Vuitton has introduced the ICONS collection which puts the focus solely on classic staple items that will stand the test of time. The offerings are impeccably crafted, just as you’d expect from the French label with the offerings ranging from formal shirting and trousers to raw denim and outerwear. The colors are fairly neutral throughout, with shades of navy, grey and cream leading the charge.
With Milan Fashion Week underway, we have looks from Versace’s S/S 2014 collection. Donatella Versace showcased a lineup that took inspiration from various sports including swimming, tennis, and boxing. Muscle patch detailing can be seen throughout the offerings as well as on the models while the designer also brings forth suiting that’s less playful and more business.
Following the return of the Burberry womenswear show to London in 2009, the menswear collection was shown as part of London Collections: Men. The showing took place at London’s Kensington Gardens. Here’s what Burberry Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey had to say about bringing Burberry’s shows back home to London.
London is the creative heart of Burberry and our global headquarters, so we are incredibly excited to be showing our next men’s collection here. The country’s proud menswear heritage and outstanding contemporary talent give it a unique and powerful energy. It is a wonderful time to be bringing our menswear show home.
The label’s put together a short video which you can check out below.
