New York Men’s Day presented by Cadillac kicked off the first set of events on the New York Fashion Week: Men’s calendar. With a range of exciting designers, I was particularly fond of EPONYMOVS. The RTW off-shoot of the full bespoke label Hvrminn, the brand ushered in the same jazz-age aesthetic that popularized its parent company and made its founders modern style icons and fodder for inspiration boards.
Clean lines and the signature 20’s fit made this contemporary rendition more than just a reiteration of a past era. The atmosphere echoed the inspiration in design yet was also undeniably authentic, more vintage reclamation than period piece. Renowned fashion illustrator Matthew ‘Sunflowerman‘ Miller was on hand to capture the scene as part of Tumblr’s coverage of NYFWM.
All in all, it was an impressive showing, drawing approval from industry staples and new admirers alike, myself included.
