BOBBY DAY
F/W 2019

Bobby West is the creative force behind the men’s line BobbyDay. West is known for providing a provocative and creative way of merging fine craftsmanship, slogans that push buttons & with his “no rules should apply in fashion” mind state.

LANDLORD
A/W 2019

For LANDLORD’S seventh collection, Creative Director Ryohei Kawanishi went back to school. He was initially exclusively focused on the Ivy League, but then one morning while walking his daughter to school…

ROBERT GELLER
A/W 2019

For his AW19 collection, Robert Geller worked with his Japanese team to find ways to do what is almost impossible: Dye Wool, Nylon and cotton in one garment. The results are stunning garments with beautifully subtle color nuances and rich textures.

DARK ENTRIES
BRIAN CUNNINGHAM

FROM WIKIPEDIA: Dark wave is a music genre that emerged from the new wave and post-punk movement of the late 1970s. Dark wave compositions are largely based on minor key tonality and introspective lyrics, and have been perceived as being dark, romantic, and bleak, with an undertone of sorrow.

N. HOOLYWOOD
SPRING 2019

We first fell in love with designer Daisuke Obana’s creations for the N. Hoolywood Japanese menswear label some seasons back and the designer consistently intrigues us season after season.

DAVID HART
SPRING/SUMMER 2019

It’s no secret that we eagerly await whatever New York City menswear designer David Hart throws at us on his runway each season. And we’re never disappointed. This season saw an obvious nod to the early 70s, and we were enamored with the entire collection.

WILLY CHAVARRIA
SPRING 2019

Willy! Willy! Willy! The past few seasons from designer Willy Chavarria have made us big fans of all things Willy. And this season was no different. The New York City designer took inspiration from immigration rights issues in the United States. Way to go!

LIBERTINE
FALL 2018

We’ve probably said this before, but here we go again…Libertine is hands down our favorite collection to feature every season during New York Fashion Week. Brilliant designer Johnson Hartig is consistently dead on with his LA based hi-end fashion label, catering to fun girls and boys with a bit of extra cash in their wallets.

FADE TO GREY
MILES MONTIERTH

“Fade To Grey” is the name of our latest Ponyboy menswear editorial, a song title from the new romantic band Visage, fronted by style icon Steve Strange. A favorite time period of ours, the late 70s to early 80s proved to be so creative and expressive, from the punk movement to the birth of new wave.

ABASI ROSBOROUGH
FALL 2018

LUAR
FALL 2018

Luar is the eclectic, young and really fantastic menswear/womenswear/unisex line that’s designed by the fascinating talent known as Raul Lopez. His Fall 2018 Pieces of Me collection is one of the freshest things we’ve seen in ages with it’s creative cuts and twisted designs.

FENG CHEN WANG
FALL 2018

Enamored is what we are of brilliant designer Feng Chen Wang’s bold menswear statements. Last season we just couldn’t get enough of her “Made In China” collection for SS 2018. And her Fall 2018 season was just as strong with her coming home theme.

WILLY CHAVARRIA
FALL 2018

Menswear designer Willy Chavarria is making bold statements with his dark and masculine collections. Unfortunately, we missed last season’s show at the infamous New York City leather bar, The Eagle – a very strong showing that had people talking. This season’s show dubbed “Believers” was no less powerful.

DAVID HART
F/W 2018

It’s no secret that Ponyboy worships all things from menswear designer David Hart, with his twist on 50s midcentury aesthetic presented in past collections. However, this season Hart made this statement: “This collection is really inspired by the mass exodus of American brands leaving New York to show in Paris.

FENG CHEN WANG

S/S 2018

With a master’s degree in fashion from the prestigious Royal College of Art in London in 2015, we first became aware of the London based menswear designer Feng Chen Wang when the brand was nominated for the LVMH Prize in 2016. In her first New York runway show, the designer paid homage to her home country with “Made In China” emblazoned on many of the looks. Most designers don’t usually boast about that, but Feng Chen was determined to change the negative connotations of her produced in China collection. With the designer’s focus on technical outerwear, we saw futuristic garments that caught our eye in more ways than one. Design touches included ruching, drawstrings, top-stitching and slashes on this primarily athletic line. And what about those fantastic gloves! A quote from the brilliant designer in WWD regarding her inspiration, “The Chinese landscape, with it’s vast rural expanses and vivid expressions of color, inspired a collection which contemporizes China’s luxury heritage.” Feng Chen Wang, a Ponyboy favorite.

GUSTAV VON ASCHENBACH

SPRING 2018

Gustav von Aschenbach is the highly anticipated menswear project created by New York City designer Robert Geller. In usual Geller fashion, the designer did not disappoint. Named after the main character from the book “Death in Venice” by Thomas Mann, Geller created a more accessible and affordable line, taking a break from his usual very stylish and avant-garde collections. Looks were very easy and effortless, something that you could just pull out of the dryer and throw on. But it was far from boring. In fact, we found the simplicity of the boxy and oversized cuts, many shown in monochromatic pairings, to be refreshing, youthful and just beautiful. It all seemed utilitarian, as if one was wearing a uniform or workwear. As always, Geller keeps us watching and wanting more. Photography Alexander Thompson.
