N.E.C. STYLE: NYFWM: GRUNGY GENTLEMAN SS18

NYFWM: GRUNGY GENTLEMAN SS18


Jace Lipstein, CEO and designer of Grungy Gentleman, is back again  with a new collection that can only be described as men's athleisure wear. This Spring 18 collection, off the heals of his New York Knicks collaboration, has a  NYC hip hop style that could be appreciated the world over.  

  

GG is known for giving fashion for the everyday man with style and sophistication and edge, but this collection seem to lack the edge of his previous collections.
Colors was based in grey, black with a splash of blue here and there but if you were looking for bright bold color this was not the collection.  What made this collect interesting was not the colors but the designs.  



A few items that caught this men's wear enthusiast eye was the athletic sports jacket,warped tank top and denim like sweat pants. There seems to be a concentration on giving unique design to athletic clothing through modern cuts and fabric use.  



The stripes on everything became repetitive and sometimes unnecessary.  It also felt like a it threw back to a collaboration with Knicks too much.  But, overall it was a good collection.  

The garments showed great constructions and really spoke to me.  Also,  thumbs up for using a divers models including older gentlemen. This help the audience to know that athletic clothing is not just for the young man.   

Here are a few more photos of the collection.
