NYFW kicks off with New York Men’s Day where gender fluid and menswear collections make their debut for the upcoming seasons of fall 2020, spring and summer 2021.
APOTTS – Spring/Summer 2021

It’s full of light and dark beige/brown earthy tones as well as some light colored denim. The majority of the pieces are oversized which adds a breezy lightness to each look. The sheering and ruffles that are prominent in some pieces adds a delicate touch of child like innocence.
David Hart – Season-less Collection 2021
This line was influenced by the artwork of Peter Harley where he incorporates boxy angular shapes into vibrant pieces. The rich lively colors present throughout the collection brings energy into 2021. Each piece has modern undertones mixed with vertical perfection. Oversized coats and bucket hats seem to be a theme as well as turtle necks layered into the majority of the looks.

Crimson, brown and beige tones is favorited throughout the collection. Carter Young brings youthful sophistication to 2021 with each piece.
Stan – Spring/Summer 2021
