Best shows from NYFW: Men's Day 4: Todd Snyder and Timo Weiland
New York Fashion Week: Men's
TODD SNYDER: FIGHT CLUB
The collection: The American adoration for the new breed of casualwear is still going strong, and as evidenced by Todd Snyder spring 2017, bombers and sweats are not the only way to ride the sportswear wave. Taking the boxing shorts out of the ring and onto the runway, Snyder's silver and mint green incarnations (looks 3 & 26) were the highlights of his otherwise classic — and extremely safe — collection. Banker stripe trousers, sports jackets and summer tailoring (matching suit jackets and bermudas) were also key for this American designer.
Something you might have missed: Those leather straps positioned by the hip and peeking out under jackets — reminiscent of the wallet chains that pervaded the '90s (looks 17 & 35).
Trending now: Transluscent and coloured spectacle lenses (also seen on Gucci's cruise runway) that give new meaning to the saying, "To see the world through rose-tined glasses" (look 27).
TIMO WEILAND: GENERATION Y
The collection: It's clear that co-founder and creative director Tim Weiland designs with first and foremost, the new generation of males in mind. Severely cropped skinny trousers (looks 12), silk blouses paired with knit ties (looks 1 & 17) and, sandals with socks (looks 8 & 16), formed the bulk of his core message this SS17. Also tapping on fashion's ongoing sportswear dialogue like Todd Snyder above, Weiland gave the zippered sports top a refreshing twist: Constructed in silk and afforded the rock 'n' roll treatment à la Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent (look 21).
Buro loves: That blush pink is the new addition to the gent's summer palette (look 15), also seen at the John Elliott collection that showed yesterday.
Summer suede: Yes, you read that right (looks 22 & 25). Trending since SS16, find out how to pull it off and beat the heat in our menswear trend report, here.
