Don’t Count The Men Out Just Yet
For a moment where all the attention is given to the men, New York Fashion Week stepped in today to push a moment in their lives here in New York City to give all the attention to the men for what is New York Men’s Fashion Week today, via Seventh House PR to give note to the spring 2019 collection of A_I_R.
A_I_R spring/ summer 2019 collection debuts its second season, asking artist, Sharon Lee to carve certain animals and objects that have multiple meanings to the brand (tigers, bats, flowers, suns), creating a visceral palette of color, silhouette, and style that references the past, harkens to the future, and sits squarely in the here and now.
The men’s looks includes blue rain washed “It’s A Lyfe” tee with check golf pants and volaure silver mesh watch, teal reversible coach’s jacket with light putty construction tee, white high density French terry shorts, and silver mesh volare chronograph watch, and sand mixed media woven hybrid shirt with sun washed blue remake denim easy pants and vilare gold mesh watch.
It’s looking even better with black “escort” surf company tee with black raw hem denim jeans and volare rainbow mesh watch, light putty high density terry tiger print crew with red/ white/ blue easy shorts and volare pitch black black chronograph watch, and optic white long sleeve rose tee with grey check golf jacket and black raw hem denim jeans and volare pitch black chronograph watch.
Believe it or not, women’s looks are in the mix too with wild world kimono long robe and mustard miss volare watch, sun washed blue jacquard denim sleeveless wrap with sun washed blue jacquard denim crop pant brown volare rose gold watch, , and men’s optic white “It’s A Lyfe” high density crew with sun washed blue high denim shorts and magneta miss volare watch.
Notable collaborators include Klasse14, who implants their iconic watches that strive for a new generation of creative personalities and unique thinkers into their timed hardware, Jeffrey L. Sebilia who’s 15 years of experience runs the gamut working directly with high profile celebrity clients to designing high fashion for major mass retailers, and Kirk Woodward Nelson who implements his experience as a writer and a director, and a fine artist to create such a modern collection working in the fusion of our changing fashion and media world as a whole.
Through the eyes of Daniel plus Lauren, A_I_R meets the complex and changing landscape we live in not only in the world, but in respective media and fashion, navagation in no problem for this fine work of art.
