NYFWM Expected to Present ’80s and ’90s-Inspired Trends

By Jonathan Lee

New York Fashion Week: Men’s entered its fifth season Monday with more than 50 designers showing their spring/summer 2018 collections from July 10-13 at Skylight Clarkson Square and Cadillac House in West SoHo.

Men’s fashion week in New York comes after a month of menswear shows in London, Paris, Milan and Florence, Italy. While attending those events, Bergdorf Goodman’s Men’s Fashion Director Bruce Pask noted a refocusing on proportion that he expects us to see here.

“We’re looking at clothing that is bigger, a bit more fluid,” Pask said. “Pants that are full, shorts that are oversized, referencing late ’80s early ’90s fashion, but it’s interpreted.”

Pask also predicts the runway shows will present a lot of easy sportswear. While Paris and Milan are famous for their big luxury fashion houses, New York has become known for its scrappy menswear brands from around the world.

“That’s always going to be a significant portion of what’s shown here,” he said. “The casual lifestyle and the clothing that goes along with that is an American creation.”

Tops with Hawaiian prints and pinstripes are the key inspiration for designers this men’s SS18 season.

Bottoms will be bigger, looser and baggier with wide elastic waistbands.
