From gender bending pieces to collections that weren't commercially predicted - day one of New York - Men's SS17 was a lot more exciting than people had originally thought. You just never know what the next day will bring with each respective fashion week. From visiting the art deco movement of the 20th century to having the high seas calling, you always know you are in for quite the adventure.
Garciavelez took us on an architectural journey with his collection paying close attention to the decay of roads, tunnels, bridges and even the cities themselves. The guys behind Simon Miller focused on their fabrics this time around, paying close attention to their earthly palette of olive, mustard and rust. Felt like we were on some plantation in Spain. While Michael Kors continued his love affair with hybrids with a collection including everything from suits to the track pant. No real surprise there. EFM build on collections flirting with gender lines during day one by sending men down the runway in mesh cardigans and oversized ponchos. Lets not forget about the bands around the models necks at this one. A little after this Robert Geller gave us a show that was very early eighties Berlin youth. It was so raw, it was beautiful. New York - Men's took a turn after this with one collection mashing soccer, anime characters and the 1920 flapper together. Of course it could only be Gypsy Sport. Not to sure what kind of universe they are living on. However, it wasn't too long after when we got back to normal with Cadet taking us on a roman holiday.
What a day. So much variety. I mentioned getting back to normal above but what really is normal when it comes to these fashion weeks? Normal is boring and Cadet was far from that. From linen that was held together with safety pins, to very weird mashups, to bringing out femininity in males - day two was everything you hoped it would be.
