Men’s Designer Inspirations

The shows must go on — literally.
Although the schedule is sparse, with many big-name designers taking a pass, a few brands are still participating in New York Fashion Week: Men’s, which kicks off today for its three-day run.
New York, which jumped up from July this time, is now starting the men’s spring season, pre-dating London, Florence, Milan and Paris.
Here, New York designers gave WWD an exclusive sneak peek at their vision, which ranged from the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Inn demonstration and the art of deconstruction to Eighties queer culture.
 
“This collection was inspired by a clash between the mundane qualities of rural domesticity and the rebellious fluorescence of the ’80s queer underground.” — Neil Grotzinger, NIHL
“Deconstruct the traditions.” — Daisuke Obana, N. Hoolywood
“Inspired by the Stonewall Inn riot 50 years ago, the Private Policy spring 2020 collection is a call for community, so we can overcome societal challenges and prevail with courage together.” — Siying Qu and Haoran Li, Private Policy
“With a keen interest in exploring the hardness of the urban environment against the softness of an untouched culture, Abysm’s debut collection is inspired by the duality cultural and life experiences from my youth, fused with my desire to

NYFW: Designers’ Men’s Fall 2019 Inspirations

New York always offers a diverse group of designers, with aesthetics that range from classic men’s wear to streetwear, and even nonbinary. As the last round of the men’s fall runway season gets under way, brands offer a peek into their inspiration this season — everything from technical sport and the California desert rock scene from the Sixties to  uniforms for the modern-day cannabis ambassadors.
 
“Combining robust flannel, washed tweeds and vintage velvets — the contrasting textures, hues and patterns in the Joseph Abboud fall 2019 collection are as unique and diverse as the immigrants who helped found this country.” — Joseph Abboud
“This season, art — an integral strand of the Boss DNA — is our starting point. We take on the role of curator, traveling the world in search of creative ideas, and have stopped in New York. The gallery district in Chelsea has inspired the design, creation and curation of the new fall collection.” — Ingo Wilts, chief brand officer, Boss
“Dyne fall 2019 stays true to its technical sports-inspired roots, elevating the materials through texture and color and inspired by the beautiful outdoors of the Oregon Painted Hills. Tailoring is at its roots as always and fabrics have been sculpted

Designer Inspirations

“Reflections.” — Scot Shandalove, Matiere
“The Shape of Things” — Robert Geller, Gustav Von Aschenbach
“Californian Futurist” — Patrik Ervell
“NEW UNIFORM.” — Michael Maccari, Perry Ellis
“New York Underground” — Ariel and Shimon Ovadia, Ovadia & Sons
“The spring 2018 collection draws inspiration from the lyrics of John Denver’s song, ‘Rocky Mountain High,’ with an emphasis on the lyrics ‘serenity of a clear blue mountain lake.’ During these unsettling times in America, we’re asking: ‘What does a modern manifestation of that time look like for 2018 and beyond?’” — Parke Lutter and Ronen Jehezkel, Parke & Ronen
“The colors and vitality of the ocean are amazing. It’s the opposite of Mars. The collection is loosely based on Donovan’s hit song from 1968, and Plato’s description of Atlantis in 368 AD. The ‘Atlantis‘ collection is really a metaphor within a fashion show.” — Nick Graham
“EFM Engineered For Motion SS18 was inspired by urban textures and the modern city dweller. We looked at architectural and natural forms, and translated their shapes into apparel for an individual with a growing sense of self.” — Donrad Duncan, EFM Engineered For Motion

Borbonese: Inspirations: Inspirations

Borbonese: Inspirations: Inspirations


A luxuriously illustrated book published to follow the historic and elegant Borbonese brand. This highly collectible volume takes a look at the lavish world of Borbonese, the historic Italian brand founded in Turin in 1910 that produces luxury handbags, jewelry, and accessories, combining the finest materials and manufacturing techniques with expert craftsmanship.  With a history spanning more than a century, Borbonese designs remain classic and timeless, with the O.P. (partridge-eye) print as the brand’s symbol and trademark. It is this unique texture presented in innovative ways, along with other distinctive elements on their iconic handbags, which have helped define Borbonese as one of the most distinguished brands in Italian fashion. Borbonese is known for their beautiful bags and scarves, still synonymous with quality and high style; however, the accessories range has evolved over time to include clothing and leather garments, as well as goods for the home, for a style that represents true “global living.” The book is divided into four chapters, each introduced by a different writer, which correspond to the animals that inspire Borbonese’s classic designs: the butterfly, partridge, owl, and horse.
