Last Post for NYMD — Ready, Set, Go!

So wrapping up NY Menswear Day, we have Bespoken NY and another womenswear presentation with Stephen F., all showing for this event-filled day. Do check out my other pieces for NYMD —

NYMD was presented by Cadillac and was held at Industria Superstudio. It was a great time and truly amazing to see so many talented designers. Now let’s take a closer look at Bespoken NY.


Bespoken fleshed out a lineup of its signature tailored pieces. From the formal attitude of suiting to the casual direction highlighted by sportswear, Bespoken revealed a smart undertaking.


The brand added a custom flare for the season, tropical prints dressed a few pieces with color blocking also making an appearance, as you can see above.


Bespoken Menswear kept it mostly neutral with dark rich blues, blacks and whites.


There were mixtures of street and formal wear, including separates like hoodies and slacks. The brand has really stepped it up with this collection. I love seeing the growth, so adding new modern takes and twists to the brand’s traditional staples.


We even saw a hint of womenswear, nice change-up & twist for Bespoken!

Such a dynamic presentation, great tapered looks for women, but of course in a full-on men’s tailored style. The colors work and of course the cuts. These looks are very modern and work for the fashion-forward, professional businesswoman.
