TIM HAMILTON AUTUMN/WINTER 2009
LEHMANN MAUPIN GALLERY
540 West 26th Street, NYC New York Fashion Week
All the young dudes were drinking SAPPORO beer (and probably a little bit ‘deaf-er’) while posing on stark white platforms for Tim Hamilton’s rockin’ Fall outing.
As we discovered when we caught Hamilton’s Spring collection last September, this designer’s output is easily one of the better menswear lines out there. And we think should have a broad appeal for guys. After all, the designer once toiled for mass marketer J. Crew.
For the cooler temps, slim silhouettes, shrunken collars and sharp, sharp, sharp tailored suits (a double breasted red ensemble, nice) were standout attire details we took away from the night.
There was some appropriate outwear too, including a hooded long jacket and a dark black trench that had city slicker all over it.
We think Hamilton deserves wide retail recoginition---though we could have done without the tinnitus inducing tunes.
