On July 13th at Skylight Clarkson Sq, Nick Graham presented his collection at Men’s New York Fashion Week. The theme was our men in Havana and not a detail was missed. Prior entering the venue, flight attendants handed out brochure’s describing the show as well as a sweet voucher to fly to Havana yourself!
Once inside a beautiful band welcomed guests with authentic Cuban sounds. To open the show, women clad in custom garb came out and danced. When the runway models came out, they not only walked the runway but found a spot to stand for the duration of the show. Under each model’s standing spot was the description of the piece worn. For bloggers and buyers, this is brilliantly for taking additional photos after the runway ended.
The clothes themselves were beautifully designed, showing you can never go wrong with a great structured suit. It was fun to see the rich colors and patterns used to take the basic silhouette of a suit to a new level. The reason I love menswear is how easily it can translate to women’s wear. I steal menswear concepts all the time to create a minimalist and sophisticated look. Nick Graham definitely created pieces I could totally see myself sporting.
What do you think of the show?
