Exact neutral blocking and courtly sportswear is the framework for GarciaVelez’s collection. Sharp, gridded and detailed. Classic with ease, GarciaVelez makes the ordinary and basic elements your necessary closet essentials and elevates the norm. The reflective mirrors laid at the feet of the models were an open invitation to remember to see the other you. Smooth and polished footwork were a pristine pairing with the knits, leather and architectural common sportswear that has you wanting to jet set in comfort swag that much more.

A plentiful and tight gathering, waiting in the wings with anticipation for what lay beyond the black curtains. Clipboards in hand, all authenticity, the preview of what was to come with a flattened wooden pencil for added effect. Curtains aside and the big reveal quickly stole all the breath…taken by a magnanimous display. Upon entering, four distinctive and alluring model gents towered over, in full garb, dressed head to toe. The earthy, rugged and manly traditional rooted feeling Greg Lauren is known for was ever so prominent and so incredibly illustrated. A room designed of mini vignettes, almost station like, allowing you to lose yourself in the moment and be transformed into a reversal back to the 30s and 40s…war, gentlemen, the boxing dances, clothes on the line and live model heroes.

Moving past the introduction of four was a mouth dropping surprise, mounted on a massive platform, stood legendary male supermodel, Tyson Beckford, resembling some sort of Marvel super hero. The music score echoed from from the ground and he stood magically majestic. Just steps away, another character, the ‘Man of Steel.’ As you moved in the circle of the room, a stage of player characters including a tiny surprise, the youngest character, an eight or ten year old paper boy if you may…

The distinguish gentleman came to follow, the finest of live paintings. The dandy club, table side whiskey, live fighters, the locker room, where the muscles jump roped and jabbed, swung while seated. In the center of it all, the vignettes surrounded the boxing ring, where the ring in full completion with boxers and their coach. As they danced round the mat, the sweat dripped and you soon realized you were in Greg Lauren’s very own movie. A live set, with the clothes in their finest of details became embodied and embedded in your mind. Unforgettable and marked, this presentation was undoubtedly a mini short live film artfully illustrated and designed.

Chris Stamp, Creative Director of LA based menswear brand gave us an invitation into ‘The New Soldier.’ The room with crisp white walls, deep sunk, into a haze trance with unexpected impressively thickset white smoke that grafted the room as models towered on top of pedestals, elevated like rising out of the ground. Music titled, “Gone Rogue,” by Bryant Knight was absolute and fitting; the notes trembled and rumbled as you walked through. Lost in this emotion with military detailing, monochromatic samples of angora, shiitake, pewter and indigo, structured jackets and knitted warmth, STAMPD is the modern streetwear ready for adoption. With this as their 8th collection…the desire builds in anxious anticipation of the first store opening in Los Angeles early this year.

Publicized statements made with the sun shining as Public School showcased their FW16 promoting a new view on the camouflage, sharpening the tones and offering this iconic print in suiting and bomber jackets. The wide brimmed hats were chief, complimenting tan and rich blues and salt and pepper greys mixed with olives and eggplant plums. With quilted puffed coats lined with black fur collars and denim jackets topped off blue suitings, there is a retro and at the same time futuristic feeling. The turtleneck finds its way back into the closet and high-necked collars run throughout. Spice of culture and flair, leather and plaids, these are no ordinary guys…this is a Public School exclusive, these boys don’t tell no lies.

Electric youth and sonic fire lights, with this urban, independent streetwear. PLAC gave a tic tac toe of black and white primary general everyday separates lined with common neutrals to buff it out. Ever so assured and careless. The cool boys in the black and white Docs, half hoodies, blanketed and layered, a cold grain and always prepared for any sort of temperature and temperamental mode change. This is your Jordan Catalono. The one you heart leaps for.

Spotlight, on this dark and dandy composure with Max N’ Chester. No-wear, not mens or womens but a without gender label garb. Subtle accessories with bowler hats, round eyewear, scarf neck ties, beanies and paper boys, all engineer this sherlock feel of art. A display of my blue heaven highlighted with slated grey basics, button up cushy blazers, striped vessels and pockets to reference. Tidy and positioned, this collection presents an outline for your awkwardly perfect self attire, ideal for any hour.

What is it about a man in uniform. Like a painted coat, so smooth, desired, fantasized and dreamt of. Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream, and make him the cutest I’ve ever seen. HVRMINN lines up militant distinction and a refreshing nod to the 30s and 40s with gentleman courtesy. A Dick Tracy referenced rich palette and the white rabbit stock white and tar gloves, even turtlenecks, tie pins, and garrison hats leave you breathless and still waiting for your gentleman caller to take you out to a matinee and walk your down a penny pleasantville lane.
