ANNA K F/W 2016

YOUTHQUAKE!

Here at Ponyboy we’re just infatuated with anything that’s young and cool. And twenty-year-old fashion design sensation Anna K embodies everything that is both young and cool. The talented designer, who started out as a model in her native Ukraine, has risen to become the most successful designer in the country. She sells worldwide to over forty boutiques, including Collette and Isetan. Her previous collections and personal style have been applauded by many in the fashion industry, including Vogue and Style.com.

Anna K’s first US show, dubbed “Guest from the Future”, was inspired by the young invaders taking over the fashion world, much like the designer herself. The extremely fun collection consisted of 120 pieces of colorful dresses, sweaters, miniskirts and leather jackets. A favorite look was her signature oversized trapeze dress, which one can easily see on any young girl running around town. We were also extremely fond of the leather jacket/miniskirt set adorned with a rocket ship and flames, which the designer wore at the show. She accessorized the collection with quirky long earrings and necklaces assembled from chainlink and scarves. The dynamic shoes were a great addition and the outcome of a brilliant collaboration with twenty year old designer Nicolo Beretta, founder of Giannico shoes. The styles consisted of colorful, pointy spat-like shoes, eclectic sneakers and embellished suede boots. Anna K reached high for the stars with this collection, and she successfully took us along for the ride. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://annak.fashion

REVENGE

For Fall/Winter 2016, New York City menswear designer Kenneth Ning dubbed his youthful collection “Revenge”. Shown during New York Fashion Week for men, the collection also included three women’s looks shown on female models. Standout pieces for men included oversized vests and jackets with exaggerated collars, zippers and grommets. The designer also showed a fabulous “revenge” print black and white suit, as well as a silk burgundy hooded zip-top, shown on model Erik van Gils. However, in our eyes, the showstoppers were the very graphic houndstooth overcoats, which were just out of this world. Accessories played a key role in this rebellious look, with male models sporting long dangling earrings and Dr. Martens shoes. The talented Ning stayed true to his vision of dressing the next generation, with his fresh, young and edgy outlook on clothing. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://www.kennethning.com

CARLOS CAMPOS

F/W 2016

We first grew to appreciate the designs of Carlos Campos while covering his presentation last season. And for his Fall/Winter 2016 debut runway show, Campos did not disappoint. The designer gave us an abundance of looks in hues from a color palette of blue, cream and camel. Signature elements of the collection consisted of utilitarian and classic tailored menswear, with modern safari-like jackets, trenches and dramatic capes. The tan belted trench, worn by model Harry Curran, is every man’s perfect companion for travel. Brushed wools and cotton velveteen fabrics provided texture and luxury to the mix. And every man always needs a great white shirt in his closet, as well as a wide brimmed hat option in the cooler months. Campos wisely keeps his looks modern by showing tailored trousers with sneakers as the shoe option, which is pretty much how stylish New York men get around this gritty city. What really makes us fond of Carlos Campos designs is that they’re not only elegant in design, but also actually seem wearable and masculine at the same time.

DUCKIE BROWN F/W 2016

THE SIX LOOK EDIT

For Duckie Brown designers Stephen Cox and Daniel Silver, a six look collection was sent down the runway for Fall/Winter 2016. Six looks you say? Yes! Backstage there were whispers concerning the lack of looks. But fashion people must always remember never to undermine the Duckie’s, especially when it comes to menswear. The paired down, streamlined looks meant that everything is a must in a modern man’s wardrobe. We would easily wear the grey or navy wool topcoat, as well as the double breasted suit. And we won’t forget to mention the white hooded jacket with oversized pockets. In fact, we’ll take all six looks please – classic, elegant and modern. Do we really need more? Thank you Duckie for making a man’s dressing decisions much simpler. Designer’s take note! Photography Alexander Thompson. http://www.duckiebrown.com
