New York Men’s Day presented 10 emerging menswear and genderless designers at Canoe Studios in New York City during New York Fashion Week yesterday. It was presented by Watchfinder & Co., the premier resource from which to buy and sell premium pre-owned watches.
The brands included KoH T, Onyrmrk, Stan, Teddy Vonranson, William Frederick, A.Potts, Carter Young, Chelsea Grays, Fried Rice, and The Stolen Garment.
First up, Stan, a Southern California brand based on sustainability, surf-culture, and story-telling. The latest genderless collection is “informed by textiles” designer Tristan Detwiler picked up from around the world “trying to uplift those in the most powerful way possible,” he said. It's filled with paisley and a major flower power ‘60s vibe. The piece closest to the San Diego-born designer’s heart is a white crotchet hoodie, an ode to his mother, who spent hours crocheting her own clothes.
Cleveland-based unisex brand, William Frederick, presented a more subdued collection with neutrals tops, blazers, and pants made out of mostly all-natural fibers such as wool, hemp, and organic cotton. Rather than sourcing from a modeling agency, the eponymous designer opted to use many local Cleveland-based artists, photographers, and interior designers the brand has worked closely with to showcase his collection. “I just wanted to bring my friends along for my first time,” Frederick said.
Menswear line Teddy Vonranson centers around modern American classics. This season, the designer, was inspired by American surf culture, but wanted to give a little bit of “European discernment.” He used textured fabrics and rustic fabrics in stripes, trims, and Hawaiian floral prints. “Almost as if a European painter had painted it,” he said.
