Backstage  Boys John Elliott FALL/WINTER 2017

On a chilly New York day we headed backstage to the John Elliott FALL/WINTER 2017 New York Fashion Week Men’s show.    It was held at the Skylight Clarkson North.    This season marked the Los Angeles-based designer’s 10th collection and fifth presentation at New York Fashion Week.

Of course the shoe of choice were a pair of Air Force One’s.

New York Fashion Week Men’s

You could tell by the casting where the designer was going. Tall Papi’s in day wear to court wear. This is how most men dress today anyway.   The look’s were for cool kids and model by  these new fresh faces.

They talked to all types of men of every ethnic background.  JohnElliott_01Feb2017-57 The stage was set even the runway looked like a basketball court.  For entertainment there was a live marching band that opened and closed the show.

Reversible sweatshirts with detachable sleeves were styled with loose-fitted tear away pants and slim suit jackets.  

Silky bomber jackets were draped over white hoodies and distressed denim.  Also the attire for most men with swag, but guys beware.  This look is not for everyone.

Elliott also took the show as an opportunity to debut his latest collaboration with Nike, this time working with the Swoosh on a tonal cream Vandal High.  John Elliott is a men’s wear designer to watch. He understands what men want and what sells. He makes clothes for today’s man and his needs.

Barbershops in Paris: Why do Red and Blue signs fill the streets? It's an emerging trend in Paris. Going to a barbershop isn't going to the hairdresser. A barbershop is a place for men, haircuts are always artistically sculpted, and most of the time short. The barber is also specialized in beard styling which is always meticulously crafted.
