At the third New York Men's Day on Wednesday, 12 menswear designers presented their fall 2015 collections. It was an expertly curated mix of designers, offering a snapshot of the broad spectrum of American menswear: each grouping of six hit the right mix of avant garde and commercial, of elevated sportswear and classic suiting.
The format, too, was well planned: With presentations set up across six different rooms, it was easy to move between collections, and each designer's space still had a custom feel. It also made it easier to see commonalities: Western themes cropped up at Ernest Alexander and David Hart; the ocean was a source of inspiration for both Fingers Crossed and Lucio Castro.
All in all, it was a great taste of the possibilities of the first New York Fashion Week: Men's coming this July — which, if Wednesday's crowds were any indication, is going to be a huge hit straight out of the gate.
Take a look at the collections below.
