MARTIN KEEHN F/W 2015

THE ENO SEASON

The Martin Keehn Fall/Winter 2015 menswear collection shown on the runway at Pier 59 Studios in New York City was a truly spectacular event. The extremely talented designer went all out this season. Youthful and colorful looks with a nod to the 70’s consisted of elements such as velour, leather shirts, patchwork puffy bombers in pastels and earth tones, corduroy, high-waisted flared jeans and a groovy, psychedelic print. Top-notch styling was provided by James Valeri, with makeup by artist visionaire Mark Carrasquillo, and hair by superstar stylist James Pecis. We loved the “reverse” cornrows! When asked what his inspiration was for this season, Martin Keehn gave his official statement:

“This Fall Winter 2015 collection expands upon Martin Keehn’s interest in the tension between classic archetypes. Martin recalls reading a compelling interview that Laurie Anderson did with Brian Eno. He very much identified with the way Eno spoke of his process, approaching music in a primarily conceptual way as a writer would with a story. Around the same time Martin came across a picture of Eno in a magazine, a portrait that instantly evoked the spirit of resistance. The synchronicity of these events cemented him as the center of this season’s inspiration.

Drawn in further, Keehn began to imagine what conflicts this kind of extravagant man might have had with his father. What ended up manifesting in the collection are two characters, simultaneously loving and resisting each other: the dreamer vs the authoritarian.

This season’s fabrics embody tension itself, from the use of Keehn trademark black leather juxtaposed against lavender Sherpa and re-embroidered quilted chintz, to the contrasts of crepe de chine and fat wale corduroy, plush velour vs sporty ripstop nylon vs peter max inspired prints.

A creamy palette of lavender, canary, rust, slate and the ever present black swirl in and out of Keehn’s signature precision construction.”

THE BLONDS F/W 2015

THE CLOCKWORK ORANGE

Design duo Phillipe and David Blond have always mesmerized us with their fabulous creations. This season the Blonds paid homage to directors Alejandro Jodorowsky and Stanley Kubrick. But it was Kubrick’s “A Clockwork Orange” references that really caught our eye as the collection opened with strong black and white looks. Staples included their beautiful embellished bodysuits and catsuits accessorized with glamorous furs by Helen Yarmak (the bright orange one with multiple tails had us on the floor), as well as the most stupendous Christian Louboutin boots. We must note a dazzling “camouflage” jacket and pant comprised of amoebic shaped foil pieces, reminiscent of the great Paco Rabanne. Of course, no Blonds show goes without their trademark over-the-top big hair. And this season was no different, with beautiful 60’s inspired, waist length, back combed hair by Kien Hoang for Oribe. Makeup was once again provided by the genius of Kabuki for M.A.C. Pro Team, characterized by a sensational winged black and white eye and a soft pale pink lip. These frocks could never be considered ready-to-wear, but rather “in-your-face” stage wear for glittery superstars. And we’re just fine with that! Photography Alexander Thompson.

ON THE FENCE

As enthusiastic followers of New York menswear designer Robert Geller, we were extremely excited to be covering his Fall/Winter collection at Pier 59 Studios. The show was a sensation, as models walked a long runway backed by a chain-link fence, while Echo & the Bunnymen’s “Nocturnal Me” blasted loudly. Key looks for the 1920s Olympic fencing wear inspired collection included cropped pleated trousers, mock necks, elegant wool overcoats, parkas with large collars, broad horizontal stripes, wife beaters, suspenders, netted gloves and layers, lots of layers. Though the hues remained characteristic of Fall, there was an occasional burst of color. For example, there was a terrific red water color spatter shirt and scarf set, as well as an oversized orange mock neck top. The entire collection was incredibly handsome and featured on the best runway models, including Benjamin Jarvis, Baptiste Radufe, and “It Boy” newcomers Mats Van Snippenberg and Charlie James. And, we also live for the avant-garde orange/red streaks on the slicked back men’s hairstyles. Photography Alexander Thompson.

THE NEW YORK WINTER

Rochambeau menswear designers Joshua Cooper and Laurence Chandler took inspiration from the gritty, wintery streets of New York City in their Fall/Winter 2015 collection. The set was adorned with huge blocks of ice that were filled with odds and ends, much like the garbage you find on the streets of NY, including cigarette butts, umbrellas, metrocards, and an old slice of pizza. The brilliant collection incorporated both modern, futuristic looks as well as militaristic looks. Garments made of sleek, high-tech fabrics were shown alongside heavy, tactical-looking combat wear. Design details included industrial belt straps and oversized pockets. And accessories were comprised of large flashlights and Timberland boots. We love that this design duo stays true to their Rochambeau masculine aesthetic, as well as they produce every piece of clothing in New York City. Photography Alexander Thompson.
