Best shows from NYFW: Men's SS17 Days 1 & 2: Wood House and Michael Kors
New York Fashion Week: Men's
WOOD HOUSE: ART DECO
The brand: Born in Korea and soon-to-be based in New York, the young menswear label is helmed by co-founder and creative director Julian Woodhouse. With a short but impactful track record established, the fall/winter season remains his strong suit, where depth of layering showcases his expertise in form and function.
The collection: Tackling this summer's graphics with a judicious eye, early 20th century Art Deco meets relaxed tailoring, bolstered by signature Wood House zips and buttons incorporated for pure purpose: To afford the freedom of garment modification (looks 9 & 11).
Favourite look: The simplicity of the floor-length duster coat and wide-cut pleat front trousers (look 4). Elementary, yet rakishly debonair.
MICHAEL KORS: AWAY ON VACATION
The collection: As always, Michael Kors is all about the high life. Picking up where his travel and aero-inspired FW16 campaign left off, menswear SS17 highlights the merit of easy separates — built to tackle both the warmth and chills of the season. Think: Sharp windbreaker jackets, lightweight layers and blazers atop shorts, milled for that laidback mediterranean mid-summer getaway.
Buro loves: The tone-on-tone ensembles (look 14 & 15), a daring step for the decidedly commercial designer. Well-executed by way of stark-white accessories that break up the tonal palette.
Try this now: Fusing the functionality of a windbreaker with the crispness of a suit jacket (look 24), take cues from the brand's stylistic innovation and work it into your next daytime ensemble — perfect for when the weather throws you a curve ball.
