New York Men’s Spring 2016

The inaugural New York men’s shows were a crazy taxi ride of influences, from the emo-90s to tony Bel Air, as I discovered for Style.com…

In a detour from the high-concept grit of previous seasons,Geller envisioned a leisurely German paradise for spring, far removed from the tangle and tussle of eurozone talk.

Siki Im
“I love you, New York, but you’re bringing me down,” a falsetto trilled from Siki Im’s runway — a poignant expression of the conflicted feelings the designer has for the city.

N.Hoolywood
Despite their deceptive simplicity, Daisuke Obana’s men’s collections for N.Hoolywood are complex affairs, layered with influences and rich with meaning.

John Elliott + Co
You could say the emerging label John Elliott + Co, co-founded by the namesake designer and his business partner, Aaron Lavee, is really finding its feet.

Michael Bastian
Already one of the toniest enclaves on Earth, Bel Air has just nabbed another accolade: the theme of Michael Bastian’s spring men’s show.

Richard Chai
When asked to be a part of the new-and-himproved men’s collections, Chai said he reflected on his adolescent years in ’90s New York and its surrounding suburbs.

Billy Reid
Something of an anomaly, Reid is a happy outlier on the New York men’s scene. Sure, he’s got two bustling stores in Manhattan. But for the most part, he revels in his differentness.

Todd Snyder
Unapologetic classicism was, once again, Snyder’s MO for spring. Except this time the designer sought inspiration not in the hallowed genius of Frank Lloyd Wright or George Orwell.
