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

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.

DEVON HALFNIGHT LEFLUFY F/W 2016

ETERNALLY YOUTH

Devon Halfnight Leflufy is the incredibly gifted, Antwerp based clothing designer who is well known for his very youthful and innovative creations. Leflufy began creating his line in 2013, and the fashion world was abuzz when his MFA collection from the very prestigous Royal Academy of Fine Arts was scooped up by uber-hip Opening Ceremony. His collection for Fall/Winter 2016 was  distinctively gender-fluid/unisex, shown during men’s fashion week. And it screamed everything about youth! In fact, “Eternal Youth” was not only printed on the collar of a leather jacket, but also on shoes and baseball caps. Standout pieces were characterized by recycled patchwork. There was an incredible mesh top and skirt that were constructed from iPhone cords. Our favorite piece, a beautifully constructed bright yellow over coat belted with iPhone cords, was worn by male model Charlie James. Also noteworthy were the quirky leather bags. Eternal Youth indeed. Photography Alexander Thompson. http://dhalfnight.com

STAMPD F/W 2016

MILITARY MENSWEAR

“New Soldier” was the name of the first ever New York Fashion Week presentation by Los Angeles based clothing label Stampd. Talented Creative Director Chris Stamp, who started the line back in 2011, has in a short time span collaborated with mega brands including the Gap and Puma. The well sought after Stampd is known for streetwear that is both luxurious and minimal. And the label stayed true to their mainly black and white palette this season. The twenty looks shown at the presentation were quite strong in their military inspiration. Our favorite looks included the bombers and M-65’s with straps, as well as the grey sweater with distressed elbows. But perhaps the best look was on model Ian Weglarz – a black trench coat with high collar, shoulder flap and dramatic back straps. This uniform, minimal way of dressing has always been a favorite of ours. Stampd has clearly made their stamp on modern menswear. Photography Alexander Thompson. http://www.stampd.com

SIKI IM + DEN IM F/W 2016

DARK ENTRIES

With 80s goth rock band Bauhaus blasting as the intro for the Siki Im + Den Im Fall/Winter 2016 collection, along with some Ministry thrown into the playlist, we knew that this would be our preferred show of the New York menswear season. And it was signed and sealed at first glimpse of Im’s mood board backstage, with images from 80s horror movies like The Hunger and Lost Boys. The German born designer, who studied architecture and worked as head designer for Karl Lagerfeld and Helmut Lang, gave us all things vampire. The palette was made up of black, purple and blood red (of course!). We went mad for the structured leathers accented with zippers, as well as the luxurious cashmere coats and pants. The Peter Murphy/Daniel Ash spiky hairstyles combined with over-the-top, dripped, painted faces left us speechless. And we must mention the incredible men’s casting from the brilliant John Tan. We are enamored with Im’s aesthetic and really never wanted this show to end. Dark Glamour. The Undead. Who wouldn’t want to be a best dressed vampire?
