You knew from the first vibrantly-hued urban trekker look Luis Fernandez sent out in his technical-slash-tailored NUMBER:lab collection Thursday morning that this was hybrid sportswear and clothing a guy could dig a pick into and come out on top while wearing in the corporate, creative or weekend worlds.
Outerwear was functionally detailed or inclemently coated, as was the case of one toggle-buttoned plaid duffel coat. Accessories were ice-cool, too, with color-blocked totes and backpacks, comfy muffler cowl scarves and white-soled Redwing booties.
I was happy to see this show joining the ranks of other hybrid menswear presentations, like Tim Coppens the night before, starting out as runway and finishing with a static tableau, excellent for those photogs snapping away for bloggage purposes, i.e. moi!
