With 10 designers presenting for NYMD there are of course will be several posts on Fashion Nexus detailing this major NYFW event. Check out my most recent piece here! So again, NYMD is held at Industria Superstudios and is presented by Cadillac. For my next 2 designers, they run the gamut, suits to casualwear to more sporty looks – it’s David Hart & Gents!
Purple English Mohair suit with an aqua silk atomic printed camp shirt
For Spring/Summer 2015, David Hart was inspired by all things Palm Springs – the natural landscape, as well as the Modernist architecture by greats such as Alexander, Neutra, Frey, Wexier, and Lautner.
The color palette was drawn from Julius Shulman’s color photography –

Further color inspiration from the prints & patterns captured from Shulman’s images –

This collection for men is bright & fun, full of life and energy. It’s for a man who wants to be fashionable and is not afraid to be just that — a fashionable man!

Next up Gents — a S/S collection inspired by the athletic and masculine elements of boxing as well as the clean lines and colors found in Formula 1 racing. The blending of both aesthetics makes for a strong collection of sporty and casual separates, caps and accessories.
The collection is rooted in minimalist design, classic silhouettes, and timeless sophistication. The brand started out with luxury caps and has since expanded into a complete lifestyle brand. What growth!

The brand also plays around with geometric patterns and prints, referencing the uniforms worn in Formula 1 races. Gents offers a great deal of dynamic menswear options for the brand’s male consumers, ones that will make him fashion-forward and insanely eye-catching!
