Highlights from NYFW: Men’s SS16 – Day 3
Top 3 shows
Michael Kors Collection: Keep calm in Capri
Lounge, let loose and relocate. That was the mantra of Michael Kors' latest collection as inspired by the island life of Capri. The designer presented a rakish interpretation of the getaway wardrobe made up of candy-striped suits, drawstring trousers, long-line shawl cardigans and leather sandals. Pass on the Piña Colada (topped with those neon cocktail umbrellas) and opt for a whiskey sour instead; this spring 2016 offering is more suited for a refined holiday edit.
Michael Bastian: Fresh prints of Bel Air
Michael Bastian projected the lavish Los Angeles lifestyle (think: Exclusive gated communities) on his SS16 runway. Specifically, Bel Air was his source of inspiration. Plaid, foliage prints, stripes and window-pane checks were pulled together in haphazard perfection and carried off with a devil-may-care attitude. The designer also made his womenswear debut at the show, unveiling an impressive offering marked by tailored trousers and elegant cotton blouses.
Richard Chai: Empire state of mind
The designer cited his childhood in '90s New York as inspiration for spring/summer 2016. His throwback included cut-off muscle tanks, grungy plaid and neon panels on a hooded windbreaker — clever references to the ballsy grittiness of the city's streets — contrasted against tailored coats and jackets as a nod to the more prim and proper side of New York. And, cementing a trend that we saw on the European runways, Chai reissued the '90s mainstay of mid-calf socks paired with sneakers.
