In a truly modern testament to blending “retro” with current trends, designers showcased incredibly varied collections ranging from the most literal sense of bringing back 70’s & 90’s styling up to blending streetwear with more conservative pieces.
This season expands on themes called out during last year’s February Fashion Week. “There was a common thread amongst the big trends that came out of New York Fashion Week for fall 2015, and it should come as no shock to anyone what it was: the 1970s.” – Fashionista
Mustard yellows, tans, burgundies, maroons, light pastels, and some florals were displayed throughout this February’s New York Fashion Week Men’s. Highlighted selections from various designers are called out below to tell the intricate story of Autumn/Winter 2016.
David Hart‘s “funk” plaid sets the tone for what to expect this fall. With appropriate props, there’s no question his collection is ready to perform.
Loris Diran pairs nicely cut pants with a modern army jacket blazer. Shades of textured retro deep reds keeps the look consistent.
HVRMINN‘s high cut tan overcoat compliments their subtle grey plaid suit. While WWII was the inspiration, the collection comes across as a rebellion against war attire (which is what the 70’s were all about).
A bit of “Freaks and Geeks” / Weezer magic comes through with Lucio Castro‘s nineties psych rock presentation.
General Idea incorporates the seasons’ color palette into their loose-fitting, experimental fits.
Carlos Campos‘ Central American coffee farmer aesthetic works well with the theme for Autumn/Winter ’16.
Robert Geller‘s show broke the mold of the season’s “guidelines” the most, with carefully placed accents. The pastel shirt is very 90’s, but the overall look isn’t.
As far as more street style looks more suited for winter, PLAC and Chapter (photos shown respectively) brought bold examples.
