Here we have another menswear presentation for Agentry PR & Cadillac’s NY Menswear Day, Bosideng! For the Fall/Winter 2014 season, Bosideng presents an inspirational collection, with focus to the brand’s Chinese heritage merging with the lifestyle of the modern man. The initial inspiration for the collection was artist Liu Bolin, aka “The Invisible Man.” Bolin was made famous from camouflaging himself against modern cityscapes.

Liu-Bolin-Eli-Klein-AM-16                                     lb1Another inspiration for design director Amelia Pretious, was the film, “In the Mood for Love“, by director Kar Wai Wong. The focus was on the deep colors & sweeping/breathtaking scenery of Hong Kong. Inspiration also was derived from collaborations with Shanghai-based artist Chang Jinchao, which led to the surreal illustrations on the jersey knit tops.

DSC00281From the various themes & inspirations, Bosideng created a sophisticated, modern and wearable collection. Colors include a multitude of blues, interjected with the brand’s signature bright red, as well as whites, ecrus and greys. There is also a rich color palette of regal purple, Bordeaux, midnight navy and warm camel. Prints are bold, with a new camouflage used in reversible down jackets, along with quilted casualwear and vibrant prints from Liberty of London.





There is a lot of versatility within the collection and a variety of looks for the modern man from suits to casualwear to outerwear. Dinner suits are modern and youthful, while the printed shirts are meaningful and bold. Outerwear includes a bright mustard-colored rain mac and a down coat in grey with acid yellow overcheck and fox fur hood trim.

DSC00283This is certainly a collection where you can artistic lines of inspiration. The colors are bold & bright and will certainly standout for the fall/winter season where other looks might be in somber blacks, greys, or browns. Here are just a few of my fave looks….!
