New York Fashion Week: Fashion Gallery’s Menswear Collective
Despite an early snafu involving a wax paper cover on the runway, Fashion Gallery’s Menswear Collective showing was a promising look into collections from six emerging designers. Those in attendance had the opportunity to view 6 stylistically different runway shows in one.
Blac Ivy’s dark street wear showcased elongated tees, lightweight bombers, and both muted and dark tones for an uncharacteristically chilly Spring/Summer 2015. Giofre built upon this theme emphasizing looks rooted in black that played with both loose-fitting and slim silhouettes. Noxiuz was the most vibrant collection of the bunch heavily emphasizing bold graphic prints on tees, pants, and socks.
Christian Bernard paid homage to Native American culture with in graphic print wovens, feather-detailed pullovers, and brown leather suiting. This collection drew even more attention with its barely there swimwear and the sole women’s look of the show-an autumn-inspired maxi dress. Daft Minerva and Figgie Shoes previewed a futuristic Spring/Summer 2015 with geometric prints and sheer leggings. Apollonius closed out the show with oversized black and white contrast looks reminiscent of Alexander Wang. All in all, the lively crowd saw a glimpse into a fearless SS15 for men.
