Nick Graham Men’s Spring 2018

Nick_Graham_Spring_20181Nick Graham’s runway shows are one of the most entertaining runway shows of New York Fashion Week: Men’s. He always has interesting themes and he finds ingenious way to inject his inspiration into his collections. Which is a feat in itself, in that Graham’s oeuvre is classic men’s suiting. From Latin inspirations to futuristic references to a nautical approach, Nick Graham always delivers, season after season.

Nick Graham’s spring 2018 collection was no exception. Inspired by Plato’s 360 A.D. original work on Atlantis and 60’s pop singer Donovan’s song of the same name. Graham realized his inspiration with some appropriate fashion props. Dangling rope belts, fake seaweed disguised as a Polynesian lei accessory, fake lobsters on the shoulders of suit jackets, and of course what would a nautical theme be without some nautical netting.

And though there was some shirtless suiting, rolled-up slacks and lots of exposed torsos, Graham demonstrated that the quality and fashion-forward sensibility of his spring suits stood out on their own.

Unlike several menswear collections during this rather uninspired season that leaned toward a dusty re-interpretation of a 90s hip-hop aesthetic, Nick Graham stayed with what he does best, and it made it entertaining at the same time. Something he always does!!

Stick to your guns Nick Graham. Keep bringing the class and sophistication that is a well-acknowledged mainstay of your brand. If only some other menswear brands had your taste!!
