Sporty, athletic and relaxed summed up the looks from Jace Lipstein’s Grungy Gentleman menswear brand showing during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. Even when the clothing in question was tailored, like a handful of the sports coats shown. And why not? When you dress, design for, hell design with professional ballers, that’s the attitude that shines through.
Signature looks sauntering their way down Jace’s art-gallery runway were often collaborations, like the six stripe wave pieces created in conjunction with Darrelle Revis, former Super Bowl champ, created from 3M reflective material that adorned sleeves, pants bottoms, sweaters, even those tailored jackets. An NBA collab debuted on the runway that dropped during All Star’s weekend, as well as another partnership with the MTA featuring T-shirts with subway tiles and subway stop mosaics. Model footballers besides Darrelle included Kameron Chancellor, Nolan Carroll and Wayne Gallman.
At the end of the game, Jace scored big.
