Grungy Gentleman NYFW 2015
By Dominique Hanke
Grungy Gentleman started out life not to long ago as a blog which soon developed into an e-commerce site. This turn of events resulted in founder Jace Lipstein debuting his first collection at New York Fashion Week this season.
The collection, which was a collaboration between Lipstein and sports brand Mitchell & Ness blended street, sportswear and classic tailoring.
The colour palette was clean and somewhat traditional in navy, burgundy and grey. Tailored coats, pants and blazers were paired alongside hoodies, windbreakers and Timberland boots, creating an over all feel of sleek yet street. The beautiful weathered dye detailing on the pants added real dimension to the pieces.
Among the highlights for me was a beautifully tailored navy woolen coat with a casual hooded jacket and white tee underneath. This embodied the swarve yet cool feel of the collection.
Once the formalities of the runway were over, the models got down and partied with the guests and even took part in an impromptu dance battle. It was a great first showing for the new comers and I look forward to watching the brand develop.
