ELLIOTT EVAN | NEVER FOREVER
MENSWEAR | FALL 2013 | NEW YORK CITY
That was a busy night -the first few days of New York Fashion Week---but we caught up with menswear designer---and really recent Academy of Art University graduate, Elliott Evan ---at the Ace Hotel---a few days after his runway debut.
We were bowled over by his outwear pieces...that conjured up Samurai warriors (and Evan concurred...hence the top knots on the model's head and the way he usually wears his hair too.
The leather and the weather tough poplin fabric coats/jackets sport plenty of performance wear features---like extended wool blend arm cuffs, Ri-Ri zippers (the best-all of the top-of-the-line performance wear apparel we review---uses them)...high neck collars that button/zip to ward off blizzards like the one that was swirling around that day...and plenty hidden pockets for the guy on the go.
|distressed edges...leather jacket is a work of art- hand details galore|
