NYFW: DESIGNER RECAP SS15 – PART 2

I stumbled upon a Futurist’s manifesto this weekend in a Bushwick bookstore. While scanning the summary, my eyes were caught by the name of this chapter: The Necessity and Beauty of Violence.

NYFW: DESIGNER RECAP SS15 – PART 1

This last NYFW was certainly one of the strongest I’ve ever seen here. Unlike the women’s collection’s, often tagged as very commercial, the men’s shows offered an energised and creative vision balancing between the London designer’s (Nasir Mazhar, Jonathan Saunders, Christopher Raeburn, Agi & Sam) and the Italian perfectionists (Bottega Veneta, Zegna, Gucci…).

You certainly remember my previous Veja feature posted a few weeks ago introducing their new sneaker La Memory (if not go here).

This is the tenth Raf Simons’ collection for Fred Perry and it’s still looking good! While the silhouette remains the same, simple, clean and completely assuming Fred Perry’s heritage, Raf Simons gave it an streetwear twist using stripes, strong color blocking and a darker color palette. I also enjoy how this collection is for Simons another opportunity to...
