New York is hot in July and it’s even hotter running around town to catch the many shows taking place during New York Men’s Fashion Week. But with presentations and runway shows from design veterans like Perry Ellis to newer designers like Siki Im, there was so much to see. I wanted to see as much of it as I could so running around town was a necessary evil.
One of the interesting takeaways from the shows was that many designers are taking a more global approach to Spring/Summer dressing. Weather and climate is different all over the world and designers are embracing this notion. As a result on the runway, we saw darker colors and heavier fabrics in some shows and lighter fabrics and colors in others.
