The Man Show NY SS14

If you thought you heard a lot of French accents down at Industria this past week, it wasn’t because Carine Roitfeld et crew were shooting there. It was the Man Show SS14,  ensconced in the beautiful boutique trade show venue, featuring mainly French exhibitors, a steady flow of Japanese retailers and a globally-sourced contingent of fashion editors. And the clothing? C’est magnifique!
