Day 3 of New York Fashion Week Men’s saw a bevy of models take to the runway and presentation rooms for a host of designers’ spring ’16 collections.
Yesterday’s show highlights included monochromatic sneakers at Public School, sure to be a commercial hit with buyers, and Robert Geller who jumped on the socks and sandals bandwagon.
Here is what grabbed our attention today…
John Elliott + CO
Designer John Elliott continued with the athleisure sensibility that brought him notice during his first show for fall ’15. The style translated into his shoes of choice, with varying sneakers striding down the runway, including designs by Nike – the same brand responsible for many of his fall ’15 looks. The split-toe Nike Air Rift was spied in solid white and black with white Swoosh.
The CFDA award-winning designer certainly let the shoes standout for his spring ’16 show. Two-tone kiltie shoes were a statement when paired with a shirtless model in short-shorts and blazer.
Kors’ went gladiator for spring ’16, showing strappy leather sandals in varying hues. A modern take on the Roman Centurion and yet another label (think Bottega Venetta and in particular Versace) to show a similar style.
Models at Hilfiger’s presentation donned shoes in one of two categories – classic sneakers or classic dress shoes. Whilst certainly not groundbreaking in style, the execution of the footwear was spot on. Hilfiger chose what he wanted to do, and stuck with it, producing simple, yet elegant footwear.
