Field Report: Joseph Abboud
NYFW: it’s happening. And while none of this stuff will be available for a good seven months—or until the weather’s gone from cold to warm to cold again—we consider it of paramount importance that we keep you informed (and show you how stylish future-you could be). Hence, a series of quick-and-dirty posts on as many of the shows as we can get to.
Up first: Joseph Abboud.
The background: This is Abboud’s second menswear presentation since Bernardo Rojo took over as designer—and gave the line a younger, techier approach to tailored suiting.
Degree of difficulty: Moderate, to our surprise. If you only know the brand from their ads’ sharply tailored suits, you might be surprised at the futuristic gear you’ll find here.
The showstopper: An emerald-green horsehair jacket.
Luke, I am your tailor…
