NYFW LIBERTY FASHION & LIFESTYLE SHOW


OSKLEN


DANIEL PATRICK


BAND OF OUTSIDERS

These two shows were combined at the Javits Center in NYC and held July17 - 19, 2017. The difference between the two shows is (Capsule) has emerging designers while Liberty Fairs has more established vendors. Since not everyone attending had a chance to make it to Men's New York Fashion Week the tradeshows had a Spring/Summer 2018 presentation of some of the designers that did runway shows with the Council of Fashion Designers the week before. These designers also had booths at Liberty Fairs so the buyers could actually place orders for the collections. On Monday, July 17 I took photos of the collections on live models of the designers Osklen and Daniel Patrick, and on Tuesday, Band of Outsiders.

We all know I have the "Love of the Glove" so I had to interview a glove vendor of course. This company for over 30 years has been making gloves for men and women. They first started making gloves for other people but decided to go on their own 4 years ago. Leathers/sheepskin used are all from Pittards which is a famous leather sourcing house out of England. Fun prints on leather are snake, leopard, camouflage with touch screen fingers as seen in my photos. To keep your hands warm they are lined with micro fleece. One of their dress gloves comes in a genuine python skin. Other styles are a wool and leather combination on the outer side of the glove with a wool lining inside. Special details are gussets along with zippers on the sides which make the glove easy to get off and on. Tasty flavors (colors) are wine, cognac, camel, gray, mocha, light pink and of course black. Sizes S - XL for men and S - L for women. Prices $110.00 - $120.00. Winter will be here in a few months so you better order yourself a pair now at WWW.HONNS.COM

DEADWOOD 


DEADWOOD 

These two young men are from Sweden and they started out from having a vintage store in Stockholm, Sweden. They started remaking vintage clothes which led them into reworking recycled leather motorcycle jackets from old black leather garments like the kind that everyone wore in the 1980's in NYC. No chemicals are used, only natural polish to touch up any imperfections in the leather. DDT which are recycled plastic bottles make up the lining fabric of the jacket. I felt it and it feels just like polyester fabric but this way we are saving the earth all while using a fabric that feels silky and is long lasting. Timeless, classic styles that never get outdated are what makes up this collection. The linings are so cool with a mad dog on a red background and a leopard print. Their artist friends custom write on the backs of the jackets which make them even more unique then ordinary black leather motorcycle jackets. You can see one of the designers looking very sexy modeling the many style jackets in my photos. Famous celebrities that have bought the jackets are the notorious bad rocker boy from the 1970's Iggy Pop and TV star Norman Reedus of Walking Dead. The styles are unisex and they have the cutest kids jackets also. Sizes for women are XS - L and men's S - XXL and priced at $300.00 - $350.00. Kids collection $160.00 - $180.00. To order because you know fall is right around the corner and your going to be needing that jacket end of September. Of course guys you'll want to look hot in these jackets just like the guy in my photos!! WWW.DEADWOOD.SE

TILLEY

TILLEY

Alex Tilley started this brand in 1980 because he was a sailor and needed a hat that didn't fly off his head in the wind and wouldn't sink at sea. The collection starts with all hand sketched silhouettes and is made in Toronto, Montreal, and Belleville, Ontario in Canada. Geared toward the outdoorsy type guy that wants to go boating, fishing, hiking, hunting and for the country life in general. Now Mr. Tilley made three styles originally T1, T2 and T3 which he decided he liked best. The T3 features a wind cord strap to make it stay on the head with 1 strap in the back of the to tighten up for a custom fit and another strap under the chin as seen in the photo. He put foam in the crown so it floats instead. As you can see in the photo that the hat is upside down there are Velcro pockets to hold your boating licence. The outer hat is made with cotton duck with a durable/water resistant finish. The brim has a heavy interfacing to avoid flipping up in the wind and it snaps up to allow wind to pass by your face all along with a dark under brim to prevent glare in your face. Some of the other great features about this hat are large eyelets in the crown to allow breathable, lockstitch on all seams, Hydrofoil sweatband that wicks moisture away from your face. In my opinion a great price of $75.00 that comes in five neutral color ways and because it has a 50 UPF sun protection. Another interesting style in the line is the Airflow Broad Brim Collection which is longer in front and back then the sides. Available in medium brim, snap brim, wide brim in 100% nylon, recycled organic cotton, polyester and rayon all woven together. This comes with the same great features as the T3 but with a higher crown and a 3/4 mesh panel and is $85.00. To keep these hats clean they can be machine washed/air dried. Besides all this they are insured against loss and guaranteed for life. To order go to WWW.TILLEY.COM

MAURITIUS

MAURITIUS

45 years ago this German brand started and today it's the largest leather company in that country. These lambskin leather jackets for men and women come in three fits: slim - fits tight as on me in photos and skinny rock and roll guys , regular - not skin tight but not too roomy either and what I would call a Missy fit or a great style for the middle age man, comfort - a relaxed fit and great for layering over sweaters or for a person who doesn't like anything fitted. Every jacket is handmade and unique with features such as airbrushed watercolor treatments, metal studding, linings that have heat pressed appliqués and embroidered backs. Fashion pieces are washed/tumbled for a distressed look just like denim. High quality zippers that won't bust with constant zipping up and down. Here are some of the styles not featured in my photos but you can buy off website. Basic biker style with no collar and regular fit, zipper motorcycle jacket with a slim fit, zip front 3/4 length coat, blazer with leather lacing and metal studding and black distressed motorcycle jacket with metal studs for all you hipsters, Every style is European sized with women's XS - 3XL, men's S - 3XL. Priced $250.00 - $450.00. In Germany these jackets are called PERFECTO and it's an old word for motorcycle jackets just like the character Schultz would say in the 1960's TV show Hogan's Heroes which was about WW11.

MALINGE FOR LARRY MONDIE


MALINGE FOR LARRY MONDIE


MALINGE FOR LARRY MONDIE

As I was watching artist Emmanuel Farre use patina paint on these blank handmade in France leather shoes by Malinge for Larry Mondie, I thought this is a story I must write about. Emmanuel starts off with a made in France dye with 8 - 12 coats of dye using a brush or sponge then blending it with his fingers. Next shoe creams are used to moisturize the leather. In the last step he uses a soft cloth moistened with water and natural bee's wax and rubs it in to give the shoes a high gloss shine. He has been a patina artist for 10 years and can be hired to do this on bags, wallets and shoes for you. For more information and to contact him go to WWW.MAISONPATINA.COM

After I interviewed founder Maylis de Lacoste Lareymondie of the Malinge for Larry Mondie shoe brand and who is in the phone above. He is a descendant of the founder whom stated the company in 1889. Years ago lots of shoes were made in France but this company is one of the last in the business. All the shoes are made of full grain box calf leather in the outer part, sock lining and outsole. All the leather soles are slow tanned for quality. They use Blake-stitching, Goodyear-Stitching, Norwegian-Stitching, and Lock Stitched construction. The classic European styles are Oxfords, Short Boots and Loafers priced $650.00 - $850.00. These shoes are well worth the price for if taken care of properly with polishes that you can order off their website thereby lasting at least 10 - 20 years.
