Dark, intense and classic navy blue hues have been one of the key players for menswear at New York Fashion Week. A day before the first stiletto heel was scheduled to hit the catwalk at the Lincoln Center tents – a furor of menswear brands presented a range of collections with an easygoing, laid-back luxe vibe to it, featuring a palette of blacks, whites and navy blues.
J.Crew set the stage with a collection that was all about layering your blues – although our look layers together the Blackjacket navy blue Skinny Suit and Suit Vest onto a white dress shirt, you can try one of our Nicholby & Harvard blue business shirt for a more experimental feel.
Michael Bastian’s take on the normal menswear suit was transformed with contrasting accessories thrown into the mix – instead of your regular silk knitted tie option we’ve opted for a variety of bow ties to mix and match depending on the occasion. If you’re stepping out to the Spring Racing Carnival during the day we’d recommend the lighter tones with our silver spotted bow tie. Swap out with the gingham checkered pattern bow tie for a more formal appeal, or try the spotted bow tie statement for your more informal cocktail party occasions.
For the spring season ahead the men’s tailored collections clearly featured a more innovative and youth-focused approach to your traditional form of suiting. All the cornerstones of suiting were present – the blazer, shirt, vest and trousers – but with slight alterations to the classics. Capture that essence with our look, as we opt for a slimmer silhouette suit, quirky and refreshing accessories and a more intricate approach to your traditional formal men’s shoes, thanks to the range at Casanovas Italian Shoes.
