If NYFW 17 has taught us anything, it’s that New Yorkers made bright colors the new black again.

Exhibit A: Orange & yellow tops

NYFW 17: Ovadia and Sons Fall/Winter 2017 menswear collection in NY

When we saw the tone setting look ( yellow tee and camo pants) of Ovadia & Sons’ fall winter 2017 menswear show we knew we could expect more of this collection. And we were right!  Besides it’s not only about the playful color of it but all pieces are wearable in real life too. Now that made things more interesting.

Anyhow this trend could easily get big in a month or so. And if you noticed, the fashion savvy already are on it. So It’s just a matter of time before the virus spreads all over.

The power of pink

Right about now we want to salute the guys out there who understood the power of a pink jacket. It’s really just another smart hack to give your look that “something special” it deserves. AT  NYFW 17  the runways were flooded with brights colors. Amongst those, Pink was part of the pack.

Although Carlos Campo persuaded us for life with his brilliant idea to style the long coat and army-jacket with grey wide-leg pants. Another NYFW 17 cool kid, Patrick Ervell, flipped it over to make more room for a different approach. Combining a pink gilet, white hoodies and beige trousers.

Please don’t touch my camel-Raf

It seems like Raf Simons was in resurrection mode. We mean, it honestly couldn’t get cornier with camel coats and beige chino pants. However the New York-based couturier uplifted those basic garments to suit a more avant-garde wardrobe for men.

So don’t think twice when you’re taking out your beige Dickies pants you wore 10 years ago. Because by next Fall the Raf approved essentials will be officially trending.
