Grayers F/W 14
Grayers is another one of my favorite brands spotted at last week’s PROJECT NYC men’s tradeshow. With one walkthrough of their F/W14 collection it became apparently clear why - casual wardrobe staples that every guys needs with an updated traditional style that make the clothes feel very familiar but still very current.
I got the chance to speak with head designer of the collection, Kenny Thomas, who has history as a designer with Ralph Lauren, and he quite nicely summed up his approach to the design as “rooted in rewriting the classics.” A great deal of work goes into the making of each piece right down to the fabric choice. Kenny explains the process of scouring the country for vintage prints and fabrics and then recreating them ever so carefully so as to get each fabric perfectly imperfect just like the original.
The images above are from the brand’s Fall/Winter 2014 lookbook. Aside from the effortless layering and beautiful patterns, it’s clear that the brand, like it’s team, is keen on having fun! Shadow puppets and goofy faces? YES, please! It’s refreshing to see a brand that’s having fun with fashion and after all, if you’ve been an avid Closet Freaks reader, you’ll know I like to keep things playful!
For more info on Grayers check out their website here and stay tuned to see I look I styled from some of my favorite pieces of the new collection coming up on the blog later today.
