New Menswear at Project and Agenda for AW14

If the Project and Agenda shows on Monday at the Javits Center were any indication, menswear for Autumn/Winter 2015 is being thoughtfully designed for the guy with his own fully-formed, style signature, a gentleman who seeks out quality-made products that speak to individuality and statement, often handmade, sometimes signed and always unique. I think of the handmade boots by the Italian family-run company Fracap, the handmade bags from Bleu de Chauffe, each one signed by the individual artisan, and the sterling or gold artisan cuffs from Brighten’s Juki Morizane.

Agenda AW14

I called this the puffer coat and baseball cap show. Very urban, very sporty, very focused in its curations. While the overall aesthetic and offerings of Agenda AW14 this past week might not have been my particular cup of tea, the SoHo setup had a few key pieces that I found spot on.
