ROBERT GELLER A/W 2016

THE GREY MEN

Robert Geller is the German born, New York City designer that gives a much needed kick to American menswear each season. With his Autumn/Winter 2016 runway show, we see a stylish gentlemen that fades from a black/grey palette to a very colorful, vibrant one. The very creative Geller took inspiration from the Michael Ende children’s book Momo or The Grey Gentlemen , which he read as a young child. The basis of the book was the struggle of the young, colorful character versus the menacing grey men who take over the city.

Geller gave us his version of well-dressed grey men at the beginning of the show, sending models down the runway in very dark, utilitarian styles. We saw black leather jackets, vests, pants and short gloves, as well as dramatic wool coats, slim turtlenecks and pegged trousers with zippered ankles. Mid-show the grey men evolved into a glorious group of camel, tan and browns. The last looks, which represented the imaginative child character Momo, were much less constrictive in cut and style, which seemed to be a nod to 80s menswear (as opposed to the grey men that had a bit of a 40s retro-futurism feel). This group consisted of brilliant pops in the color palette, including mustard, magenta and reds.

Geller wisely accessorized his men with stylish fedoras, as well as incredible steel studded briefcases by Japanese brand Adachishiki. There was also the terrific collaboration with luxury footwear company Common Projects, particularly a Chelsea boot shown in grey and blue suede.

We musn’t forget to mention the slicked back, pomade hairstyles with paint, that gave a finishing touch to that oh-so-precise Geller look. Unlike the character Momo, we would welcome the grey men taking over our city with that incredible menswear style. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://www.robertgeller-ny.com

JUICE

Laurence Chandler and Joshua Cooper, the creative design duo behind New York City menswear label Rochambeau, took inspiration for their Fall/Winter 2016 from the 1992 Tupac Shakur film Juice. The looks sent down the runway were oversized and layered, giving us that very urban 90s feel. There were overalls, sweatshirts and baggy trousers, shown in warm earth tones that were quite popular in streetwear fashion at the time. The line, however, felt updated with the use of modern fabrics. Ponyboy favorites included the mohairs and ponchos. Though referencing early 90’s hip hop fashion, the line seemed modern in design and cuts, with tweaks giving it that progressive Rochambeau look. We call this fresh. The design duo have successfully earned respect in menswear fashion. Juice indeed. Photography Alexander Thompson.  http://rochambeau.nyc

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?

THE NEXT STEP

For Spring/Summer 2016, Rochambeau menswear designer’s Laurence Chandler and Joshua Cooper took a step forward with their menswear line. The design duo left the street/urban element that always seemed predominant in past collections in favor of a more sleek and elegant look. Everything seemed very light weight and clean. The designers gave us an abundance of layers in soft pink and blue, and white and tan. The line was filled with shiny fabrics, deconstructed knitwear, oversized tops, parkas, bombers and joggers. There was a terrific slick jumpsuit that closed the show, and we were amused by the oversized blue sweater with a large woven “R” paired with brilliant blue leather shorts. Silver metallic bags added a nice touch to the collection, as well as the glossy, parted hairstyles that are usually worn by bankers on Wall Street. This really is modern, contemporary menswear at it’s best, and always a Ponyboy favorite. Photography by Alexander Thompson.

DUCKIE BROWN S/S 2016

LARGER THAN LIFE

Duckie Brown designers Daniel Silver and Steven Cox brought unique, exaggerated menswear to their collection for Spring/Summer 2016. Oversized is the key word in reference to the men’s high-waisted trousers, which were a size 48, tied with a ribbon on thin male model’s waists. Men’s tops consisted of loose, sheer organza fabrics. Suit jackets were made of draped voluminous fabrics. Our favorite look was a bright, attention grabbing yellow suit worn on model Tom Gaskin. A Duckie Brown collection is never boring. This is what we want to see on the runway during men’s fashion week, not basic jeans and t-shirts. Is this for the average American male? Perhaps not. But the design duo take chances and never seem to follow trends. And this we very much applaud. Photography by Alexander Thompson.

FINGERS CROSSED S/S 2016

WHEN THE SUN TURNS OUT HIS LIGHT

“A ripple effect from Nick Cooper’s photography, designer Ryu Hayama turns out his most sentimental collection yet. Another daily mystique that is often taken for granted, shouldn’t we ignore the eclipse to admire the sunset? Slouchy linen in mustard, fluid crushed velveteen and soft-brushed cotton nylon are the medium of the message. What is more symbolic is the unexpected usage of chiffon and satin draped with sparks of embroidery. Admittedly the silhouettes of this season paints quite a romantic spectrum.” FINGERS CROSSED

KENNETH NING S/S 2016

SUBVERSIVE YOUTH CULTURE

“For Spring 2016, we continued to explore the balance between subversive youth culture and clean tailoring. Inspired by faraway desert lands, we found ourselves drawn to the vibrant energy and chaos of the bustling medina.

We immersed ourselves in the unfamiliar:  colorful spices set the palette, while patterned tapestries influenced the use of unexpected fabrics such as floral jacquards and lace. Graphic elements were extracted from traditional motifs. Ornate mandalas were reimagined as statement prints and applied using innovative techniques to disrupt classic suiting fabrics such as the pinstripe.

Proportions were pushed to create updated silhouettes with fitted shoulders and full sweeps. The end result is a bold statement of cultural art reinterpreted for modern sportswear and executed with expert tailoring, for the sartorial enthusiast with a youthful spirit.”
