New York-based fashion company Deveaux, ran by former local retailer Carson Street Clothiers, delivers an urban, nautical-inspired collection to the runway for New York Fashion Week. Although the line doesn’t necessarily boast a vast amount of fashion-progressive pieces, a deep range of sleek, refined basics for the modern man doesn’t disappoint.
Wall-projected videos clips of beaches, oceans, and other desirable vacation destinations served as the backdrop for the presentation. Designer Matt Breen drew design inspirations from a Greek summer holiday, along with the movies “The Talented Mr. Ripley” and “Catch Me If You Can”. Breen harnessed this summertime vibe and added his own unique urban interpretation.
Whether enjoying a day at the beach or roaming the city streets, this seasonal collection is shows versatility. A wide color range including earthy tones, rose gold, pink, orange, red, gold, maroon, and navy were showcased on the catwalk. These relaxed, yet fitted silhouettes give an effortless feel to these fresh takes on classic men’s staples.
