It is that time again!! Yes, in a little over a week, New York City will be blessed with some of the best collections from mostly American-based menswear designers with smattering of menswear designers from other countries.

That said; New York Fashion Week: Men’s (NYFWM) has been plagued with the defection of some its main designer attractions. For the spring 2018 collections absent from the roster are Tommy Hilfiger, Loris Diran, Gypsy Sport, Nautica, Brett Johnson, Malan Breton and many others. And word on the street is that several NYFWM regulars have defected to showing in London, Paris or Milan.

To add further fuel to the fire, NYFWM lost one its biggest sponsor, Amazon, in late February. All these developments puts NYFWM and the CFDA at odds with the original intention of separating the men’s collections from the women’s collections, instituting a separate fashion week, primarily for menswear. And its fifth season, NYFWM still fails to attract high-end European menswear brands to likes of Dior Homme, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Dsquared2, Burberry, Trussardi, and a host of other household names. (This lack of top European menswear brands keeps the European press away.)

Still, the CFDA soldiers on, giving emerging menswear designers much coveted opportunities. Menswear brands presenting for the first time for the spring 2018 season include Facto Miansai, Hecho, Sanchez-Kane, C2H4 Los Angeles, Life in Perfect Disorder, Descendant of Thieves, Maiden Noir, Hellot Emil, Daniel Hector Paris, Bristol, and Head of State.
