A Recap of New York Fashion Week SS 2015: Men’s Edition

By Attireclub @attireclub

Carmen Marc Valvo Spring 2015 25th Anniversary - RunwayNew York Fashion Week, officially called Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York wrapped up after eight fashionable September days in the Big Apple, during which well-established and uprising designers showcased their collections and presented their visions for the upcoming spring-summer 2015 season.

As usually, the menswear world was not as well represented as the women’s, but there have been some fantastic designs that were brought up on the runways during NYFW.

Brands like Ovadia & Sons (which showcased for the first time at Fashion Week), Perry Ellis and Todd Snyder displayed their collections which caught the attention of the world press.

It is quite hard to talk about “NYFW trends” today, as during this week, we could see everything from formal wear to sportswear, from neutral outfits to colorful looks that featured numerous patterns, prints and textures and from classic suit-shoes combinations to more post-modern combinations, such as suit-sandals combos.

Fashion is all about surprise and excitement, so we were glad to see an array of bright patterns and colors go down the runways at NYFW.

One thing that we liked very much about the collections showcased at NYFW this season was that the wearability factor was very high. While some pieces featured very tailored structures and cuts, others made use of relaxed lines and loose. We feel that the majority of this year’s NYFW looks were something that the regular guy can definitely pull off.

Because of the wide variety of fabrics, cuts, colors, textures and shapes, many of the presented separates can be easily mixed among them and worn in a large number of combinations.

In terms of accessories, we could see several pairs of casual shoes, bags, hats, ties and even bow ties. We are glad that many designers accessorized their looks, as the modern man is always interested in accessorizing and therefore these looks served as a great source of inspiration.

Now that the collections are out, the buyers can purchase their favorite creations and the magazine editors and store representatives will select their favorites and will present their customers with them in their stores and publications in the upcoming months.

And since a picture is worth a thousand words, we have also made a collection of our favorite looks from MBFW SS 2015. Take a look at the gallery and discover our selection of the best pieces.

This Parke & Ronen look came as a nice surprise, as it features a floral print. Remember that prints can be easily paired with any neutral color. In this case, the printed pants are paired with the black and gray t-shirt (both these colors are neutrals) and the white pair of shoes (white is a neutral too).
