New York City-based designer Todd Snyder does what he does best for the Fall/Winter 2015 season and opened his show with models dressed in black short-panted skinny trousers, leather, and exquisitely tailored coats, staying true to his tailored aesthetic.The British inspired collection combines English military and New York City influences, with texture trend dominating the runway. Snyder’s use of leather, knit, and jersey compliment each other well, so we can expect to see more of this mix with leather and gabardine this fall.
In true form, Snyder’s collection is thoughtfully engineered apparel for the Ferrvor Man. Grabbing inspiration from the Purist movement, this collection embodies the clothes men want to live in. Collection pieces feature breathable, water-repellant layers and thermal stitching, practical for winter top coats.
The moody attitude and influences of Michael Radford’s 1984, is evident in the tonal color palette of black, grey, navy, oxblood, and green and military elements, which add to the current trend color forecast for Fall 2015.
Fitted skinny trousers, and tailored English spread and mandarin collars make Snyder’s suits perfect for work or a night out. Snyder did not skimp on lapel sizes either, with generous notched lapels making coats look lavish and the use of excess fabric would make any Ferrvor Man feel amazing. Leather gloves add an opulent edge and continue the trend of a return to sophistication.
Street style worthy bomber jackets make for an effortless cool urban sophistication. Knitted pullovers, cardigans and jersey trousers add a touch of casual refinement to Snyder’s overall collection. And for footwear, designer Cole Haan worked exclusively with Todd’s Fall 2015 show to supply the fashionable kicks that complete that modern American uniform look.
The 2013 CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund finalist continues to reinvent classic men’s styles by keeping the silhouettes young, fresh, and tailored for the lives of men. His take on urban chic introduces a new perspective for the fashion forward male. Todd Snyder proves to once again cultivate modern staples making him America’s new tailor.
