NYMD: The Designers

DSC_0134.jpg

This season once again I had the opportunity to attend this Spring/Summer presentation of New York Men's Day. The kickoff event of the men's portion of fashion week every season. For those who do not know the structure of NYMD. A selection of designers (eleven this season) are all gathered in a presentation space divided into separate studios with each designer occupying their own studio space for their own individual presentations. Then the designers are split into two different divisions, the first group presents in the morning and then following a brief break during the afternoon to give the teams time to rearrange the studio for the second set of designers to present that evening. Below I've complied image carousels for each designer and their collections from top to bottom. 


David Hart


Project Life Creation


Wood House Army


Head Of State


Bristol Studio


Diplomacy


Life In Perfect Disorder


Taakk


Maiden Nior


Krammer & Stoudt


Descendant Of Thieves

All together there were some pieces I loved and some I was less fond of.  The modern take on classic patterns presented by Project Life Creation was an incredible hit, and while I found his collection to be somewhat underwhelming (only in comparison to previous seasons) David Hart did bring a strong set again this season and made sure to showcase the rising popularity of berets in men's fashion. Kramer & Stoudt again brought the heat with designer Michael Rubin's latest collection. While the inclusion of distressed and acid washed denim by Taakk, and over simplistic pieces by Life In Perfect Disorder fell very short in my opinion. 


But what do you all think? Did you have a favorite or least favorite? Leave a comment and let me know!
