MARTIN KEEHN S/S 2015
NYC MAN ON THE GO
The Martin Keehn Spring/Summer menswear collection 2015 was shown on the Lower East Side of New York City. When first entering the space, we noticed many of the male models were muscular, which is a much different look than the boyish, svelte men that we usually see walking during fashion week. Some of the models sported outrageous blow-dried 80’s style pompadours, created by hair guru Jimmy Paul. There was also the heavily sprayed-on tans by make-up artist Marc Carrasquillo, using Evolution Man products. The aura of the space was definitely downtown 80’s New York. This was enhanced by a trash can filled with tall boy beers, as well as a big harsh hot light used to illuminate models on the runway. There were some kinks with the sound system, but models still walked and it really lent to that D.I.Y. house party feel. There was no stopping the Martin Keehn man! Brilliant pieces ranged from safari/military khakis to a 50’s style “pajama” set. Most of the looks had an athletic inspired touch for the New York City man on-the-go. The designer used mesh leather fabric for shirts and tank tops, as well as a “Gucci” horse bit buckle on a few shirts. Lastly, we won’t forget to mention the beer holder attached to men’s belts, which is every man’s dream! Photography Alexander Thompson.
