No longer will we have to wade through the hordes of thousands pouring into SoHo that one night a year in the fall. No longer will we be disappointed by the alcohol-hoarding teens stealing all the booze at shops. Because, thanks to these same teens, Fashion’s Night Out has been cancelled for the coming fall.
Looking for a place to shop in NYC this weekend? Why not have a unique experience with some of your favorite brands and designers?
Started by Michael Williams of A Continuous Lean and Randy Goldberg of Urban Daddy, the Pop Up Flea is a the culmination of various men’s style brands and designers under one roof so that consumers get the chance to interact with the people behind their favorite products. The fifth installment of this venture kicked off in NYC yesterday and will be running all weekend.
If you haven’t experience the Pop Up Flea just yet, check out a preview with some of the featured brands inside.
GANT Rugger did not go the route of practically everyone at New York Fashion Week when presenting his fall 2012 collection. Instead of a runway or a traditional show-and-tell presentation, the team occupied New York’s The Fat Radish and treated the men’s style elite to dinner and a show.
On the menu? According to bloggers Tom and Lorenzo, roasted lamb and grilled sea bass. On the models? Sportswear inspired by characters you’d see at a restaurant.
J.Crew’s Ludlow suit is such a staple of the brand’s menswear branch that not only are all kinds of NYC men flocking to get their own, but now there’s an entire men’s boutique dedicated to this thriving suiting style in Manhattan’s Tribecca district.
Why does that location sound so familiar? It’s because J.Crew’s Liquor Store, a landmark of the Big Apple and men’s fashion, is already there, and has been since 2008. But it looks like it’s small suiting section shoved to the back of the store has been getting a little crowded.
You think it can’t be done, but Mr. Liam Goslett from Toronto has taken all of the photos he took at New York Fashion Week fall/winter 2012 (yup, that’s kind of a long name right there) and put them all together in a five-minute video.
GANT by Michael Bastian is one of the lines everyone keeps an eye on, especially since the designer skyrocketed to fame with the GQ Best New Menswear Designer competition. This year, GQ, Park and Bond, and Details were some of the big names keeping an even closer watch, using the likes of Twitter to document their favorite looks.
Miss any of the action at Todd Snyder’s fall 2012 presentation? No worries. Park and Bond, Stylesight and Valet Magazine Tweeters were there to give everyone an exclusive look at the new collection direct from New York Fashion Week.
Belgian designer Tim Coppens is one of the seven latest winners of the Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation award, which recognizes talented aspiring designers. As such a winner, he got to show his collection at New York Fashion Week 2012 to an audience filled with representatives from Gilt Man, VMan, Nylon Magazine, and other industry professionals who reported on Coppens’ presentation live from their Twitter feeds.
New York Fashion Week 2012 has become a time for editors, bloggers, journalists, celebs, and the industry’s elite to come together and witness the incredible menswear all the gents will be wearing in the upcoming seasons. The only downside to this is that the rest of us can’t go (“sad face”), but that what Twitter is for. Most of the New York Fashion Week 2012 attendees have been sending their followers Twitpics so that we too can be a part of the excitement.
Toggles, nautical stripes, layering, great men’s sportswear… These are everything Nautica does best and their latest fall sneak-peek presentation, which happened today, gave us exactly that. GQ editors, Brian Boye from Men’s Health, and Matthew Marden from Details were some of the industry invitees who’ve been sharing all of this amazing menswear directly from their Twitter feeds.
